White Fence (L) & Ty Segall (R) (photo by Ruth Swanson)
Golden state garage rockers Ty Segall and White Fence (aka Tim Presley) have announced that they'll be releasing a collaborative LP, titled Hair, this April via Drag City Records. As SPIN reports, Ty handled skin bashing duties as well as rhythm guitar, while Tim recorded bass and lead guitar. Keep an eye out for a full North American tour in support of the album. Currently there are two late-May dates that jive with this, one of which is a performance at Chicago's Lincoln Hall on the 10th of the month. And just to make the show damn near irresistible, the Strange Boys will play an opening set. Tickets go on sale TODAY (2/3), at noon CST.
White Fence will also be releasing his own record this year, a double album titled Family Perfume, on April 3rd via Woodist. Ty is currently at work on a follow-up to 2011's excellent Goodbye Bread, tentatively set for a September release via Drag City Records. The two will play a few shows together in early March, before Tim joins up with Thee Oh Sees in route to SXSW.

Seminal Chicago label Drag City Records are getting ready to premiere their second-ever feature length film, Dragonslayer, on home turf. In conjunction with Killer Films, the label bring you a tale of youth in revolt, centered around the skateboarding scene in Fullerton, California.
Directed by Tristan Patterson and executive produced by indie-maverick Christine Vachon, Dragonslayer is the Grand Jury Prize Winner for Best Documentary at SXSW 2011.Patterson on the documentary's main subject:
An intimate vérité portrait of the life and times of Josh "Skreech" Sandoval, a 23-year-old skate legend from the stagnant suburbs of Fullerton, California, Dragonslayer takes the viewer through a golden SoCal haze of lost youth, broken homes and abandoned swimming pools, set to a soundtrack of bands from indie-rock labels Mexican Summer and Kemado Records-including Best Coast, Bipolar Bear, Children, Dungen, Jacuzzi Boys, Little Girls and The Soft Pack--as well as Death and Thee Oh Sees.
I met Skreech at a party in an abandoned airfield off the I-10 in Chino, California right after our country's economic collapse. He had a lime-green Mohawk and was wearing a matching Screamers T-shirt in honor of the L.A. punk band that never recorded an album. He looked malnourished and lost, and claimed he was on 5 tabs of acid. It was impossible to talk to him; his head was lost in the clouds. Then I saw him skate.Dragonslayer will make its Chicago premiere at The Music Box on January 25th. Tickets are $10 per person.
I think Skreech is like a lot of kids from his generation--smart enough to know a potentially bleak future looms and scrambling to figure out a way to survive in it. He's also on a wavelength all his own. Dragonslayer is my attempt to capture this wavelength and preserve it.
As noted in the flyer above, Drag City are also hosting a preview party at Wicker Park's Rodan this coming Wednesday (1/18). From 7-10PM you can catch clips from the film and label staff spinning (hopefully vinyl).
Check out the official trailer for the documentary, below..
