Popfrenzy is extremely excited to announce the release of the new album ‘Goodbye Bread’ by San Francisco’s Ty Segall on June 24, 2011 PLUS his debut tour of Australia this July!
For the last six years, Ty has made a name for himself cranking out the kind of rowdy ear-splitting, lo-fi garage punk rock that makes the White Stripes sound like something you’d buy for Grandma. At just 23 years old, the prolific wunderkind has already made nine albums including four solo albums since 2008 and three with former band The Epsilons. Plus he’s released with fellow San Fran neo-psych garage mainstays and tour mates Thee Oh Sees and still finds time to be a sometime member of Sic Alps.
The very wonderful ‘Goodbye Bread’ is the follow up to 2010’s much-hyped ‘Melted’. Yes, it’s mellower and more psychedelic pop than past chest-hair-frying expeditions, but it’s still reliably weird, reverb drenched and catchy as hell with a dark, sarcastic twist to it. So don’t be expecting no twee joy ride here. Ty is very much firing, He’s just doing without shouting.
Ty and his band will be touring Australia for the first ever time this July. Believe us when we say his head-whipping live shows are well, crazy. Actually, they’re so mind-blowingly frenzied, he’s already had three live albums released. No big surprise then they were a frequently repeated highlight of SXSW 2011.
“To say Ty Segall is awesome is a compliment to awesome. I’ve heard few things in my life more bare-bones or primally rocking than a quartet of archaic garage revivalists wailing the sht out of their four respective instruments. His songs are simple, hard, fun, fast and – above all – loud as fck. This is three-chord music as it emerged from the primordial ooze.” Sports Casualties.
