King Tuff's third album, Black Moon Spell, will be out September 23 on Sub Pop. Main man Kyle Thomas made the album with producer Bobby Harlow at Burger Records' all-analog Studio B and it features an appearance by Ty Segall, who plays drums on the album's title track. You can stream the Zeppelin-ish "Eyes of the Muse" from the album, and read some of Kyle's notes on the LP, below.

King Tuff will be on tour this fall, including two NYC shows: October 8 at Baby's All Right and October 9 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets to the Baby's All Right show go on sale Wednesday (7/9) at 10 AM; tickets to Bowery Ballroom go on sale Friday (7/11) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday at noon.

Never one to go too long without a new album, Ty Segall will release a 17-track monster titled Manipulator in August via Drag City. You can hear snippets of a few of the album's songs -- including some typical Ty rippers and at least one that goes into funky krautrock territory -- in a weird, funny promotional video below.

Ty has also just announced a massive fall tour that will stop in NYC at Webster Hall on September 17 with opener Wand. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (6/13) at noon. All dates are listed, along with Manipulator album art, tracklist and video preview, below.

Wand, who open the show, are not to be confused with Wooden Wand (who sometimes goes by Wand) or the band Wand that Bowery Presents' event page links to. It's actually the LA garage rock band who feature an ex member of Pangea, and put out a split with Ty's pal Mikal Cronin (produced by Ty) this past April. You can stream that below, and keep an eye out for their upcoming full length (also produced by Ty) due later this year via In The Red.

White Fence's new album, For the Recently Found Innocent, will be out July 22 via Drag City. It's the first White Fence album for the label, not counting the collaborative one made with Ty Segall. This one shares a little in common with that, actually, as main man Tim Pressley -- who makes most of the White Fence albums all by himself -- explains:

Fear, anger, pain, anxiety. Guilty! I needed something new. I needed to be free and innocent. I was floating in my room. Sick of the wall Bounce-A-LuLa. I could not get high. I wanted to put some songs in someone else's room. I wanted to see what they sounded like with a real drummer. I wanted to see what it would sound like using an Aliens ear. For a lack of a cooler/humble word, Ty Segall "produced" this album.

I had to choose the songs. We then went into Ty's Fiat-sized garage and recorded them. He placed the microphones, hit record and played drums on some songs. Then Nick Murray was called in to finish the rest of the drums. Nick was perfect, seeing as he'd been a solid member of the live group, and I had played demo versions of most of these for him during car rides. This all was a bit different to the WF formula. I had to put dates on a calendar. It forced me to pick the best songs of the litter, and apply those to the tools I had: Ty Segall, Nick Murray, musical instruments & tape. We then dumped all that LA jive into Eric Bauer's studio in San Francisco. Added some things, and then Ty mixed it all up. I was the farmer and this was Ty's soup. He somehow knows exactly what I hear.

While the methods were different the results are pure White Fence: a melange of '60s psych-pop influences, filtered through Presley's rainbow sunglasses. This one's maybe a little more Who-like than some of the other ones (that could be Ty "Fill King" Segall's or Nick Murray's Moonlike tendencies). No tracks from the LP have been released from the new album yet, but you can watch them cover Gram Parsons' "Lazy Days" as part of AV Club's "Pioneering" series, below.

As much as I like White Fence albums, its onstage where they really come alive and they'll be touring this fall. Dates include a NYC stop at Baby's All Right on October 13. Tickets for the Baby's show are on sale now. No opener has been listed for that show but most dates are with King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard (who are playing a bunch of Brooklyn shows this month).

All dates are listed, along with the video, below.

Coachella 2014 - Day 2

Coachella 2014 - Day 2
Coachella 2014 - Day 2

Watching Ty Segall at the Outdoor Theatre to kick off my Saturday drove home a 2014 Coachella reality: the relative lack of noisy, guitar-driven bands. While the bill is loaded with synthy, electronic-leaning indie types, traditional rock acts are few and far between this year. As if to illustrate the point, late in his gloriously loud and raucous set, Segall covered "Mötörhead" by Mötörhead, one of a handful of truly heavy bands at the fest.

...I arrived 20 minutes early Saturday night [for the Pixies], just in case, but while the Mojave eventually filled and then some, things never got ugly. As for the set itself, I doubt I'll ever adjust to seeing Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering on a stage without Kim Deal, but the new-look Pixies produced a quality set nonetheless, bashing out extra-ferocious versions of "Gouge Away," "Nimrod's Son," "Crackity Jones" and more. [Las Vegas Weekly]

Coachella 2014 recently wrapped up its first of two weekends. You already saw pictures of day 1, and we've got a set of day 2 pics in this post, including shots of Pet Shop Boys, Pharrell, Queens of the Stone Age, Pixies, Fatboy Slim, Lorde, Future Islands, Warpaint, Julian Casablancas, Ty Segall, Graveyard, Foxygen, Laura Mvula and more.

Of course there's too much to catch everything, but many other great artists played the second day too, including Solange whose sister Beyonce came on stage to dance with her (video below), Nas whose frenemy Jay Z joined him for "Dead Presidents II" and "Where I'm From" and Diddy (I mean Puff Daddy) joined him for "Hate Me Now" (full set video below), indie legends The Dismemberment Plan, post-rock vets Mogwai, plus sets from MGMT, Washed Out, Bombay Bicycle Club, Holy Ghost and many more.

One of the big talks of the day was Pharrell (and his hat), who brought out loads of guests who reminded the crowd that Pharrell wasn't a nobody before "Happy," "Get Lucky" and "Blurred Lines" (all three of which he played). He produced or co-produced huge hits for Snoop Dogg ("Drop It Like It's Hot"), Gwen Stefani ("Hollaback Girl"), Busta Rhymes ("Pass the Courvoisier") and Nelly ("Hot in Herre"), all of who joined him for said songs. A few videos from his set below.

Day 1 pics here. Day 3 pics here. More day 2 pictures, Blake Anderson of Workaholics moshing to Ty Segall included, and videos below...

Bonnaroo 2013 (more by Katherine Hansen)

As mentioned, Bonnaroo 2014 happens June 12 - 15 in Manchester, TN. The fest has already been dropping hints as to who's going to play this year (Kanye and Elton John seem likely as headliners) but will finally spill the beans tonight via a web show called "Blam!" which airs at 9 PM EST on Bonnaroo.com (or an Xbox app). (Maybe you watched last year's with Weird Al Yankovich and Portugal the Man.)

Mike Donovan

Having broken up Sic Alps, Mike Donovan released his first solo album, Wot, which took his typical sludgy blues style and wiped a bit of the mud off it. As he was the only constant member of the band, it's not that different than the last Sic Alps record. Mike just made a video for Wot's opening track, "New Fieldhand Bop," which takes a close look at our dependence on mobile devices. You can check that out below.

Mike also gave us a 2013 Top 10, which is more a chance to shout out inspirational people in his life than a list of records he digs, though some of the folks are indeed musicians -- all in his quintessential type-speak. That is below as well. No word on any North American tour dates -- he was here back in October -- but we're keeping our eyes out.

Video and Top 10 below...

Pitchfork

Pitchfork just posted their Honorable Mention Albums of 2013, which they say is "not #51 through #70 in our albums poll, but rather, records we thought were exceptional this year and deserved to be highlighted regardless of where they wound up." It includes a number of albums that did get Best New Music throughout the year (like the Burial EP that got a 9.0 last week), a certain inescapable young New Zealand pop star (who just announced two Roseland Ballroom shows), some metal representation, a couple indie legends, and the raw noise punk demo of Perfect Pussy, who also made Pitchfork's Top 100 Tracks.

Check out the full list in alphabetical order below...

Pitchfork

Pitchfork just posted their Top 100 Tracks of 2013. It's got what some people might call the worst song ever, the song with the most talked-about rap verse of the year, some surprises, and some of the year's most undeniable songs. Their #1 pick is certainly one of those undeniable songs, whether or not you're a fan of the artist who made it. What do you think of their list? Did your favorite song make it? Any glaring omissions?

Andrew of Castevet at Lit Lounge, 2010 (more by Samantha Marble)
Castevet

Extreme sport junkie, Music Academy presenter, sponsor of cool Sound Select showsmagazine publisher and beverage maker Red Bull has put together a list of the 30 best guitarists under 30. In the two-part rundown, the list covers some territory, lumping Pallbearer's Brett Campbell, Liturgy's Hunter Hunt Hendrix, Mac Demarco, Danielle Haim, Ben Greenberg of The Men, Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz, Marissa Paternoster of Screaming Females and Fun guitarist and Lena Dunham-dater Jack Antonoff onto the list. You can check out the whole list below.

Music of the heavier persuasion was decently represented, and Castevet's Andrew Hock made the cut. You can catch him in action with Castevet at an Invisible Oranges sponsored show on October 25 at Union Pool with Churchburn, Oneirogen and Vorde. Also on the list, as a pair, are Inter Arma riff monsters Trey Dalton and Steven Russell. Inter Arma will be back in NYC soon to play Saint Vitus on October 30 with Black Tusk, Descender and No Way.

Ty Segall, who also made the list, will be here next weekend (but on drums) with his band Fuzz, playing a sold out show at Mercury Lounge on 10/12 with CCR Headcleaner. (There is also a show with "Buzz" and "DDT Shampoo" at Death by Audio on 10/13).

You can catch The Men at MHOW in November.

Speedy Ortiz, among others, will be here for CMJ.

Who'd they leave off the list? Check out the full list of Red Bull's 30 under 30 below...

FUZZ

As mentioned, Ty Segall's Sabbathy/Blue Cheer-y power trio Fuzz (where he sits on the drum stool) will release their debut album on October 1. You can download a new track from the album, the super-crunchy "What's in My Head," above and stream it below.

Also as you may know, Fuzz will be on tour next month with CCR Headcleaner and that hits NYC on October 12 at Mercury Lounge. That show is sold out. This may or may not be related, but Death by Audio's calendar lists a band called "Buzz" playing there the next night (10/13) and Fuzz have no show that night on their tour schedule. Hmm.

All Fuzz tour dates are listed, along with the new track stream, below.

Ty Segall @ Bowery Ballroom 8/30/2013
Ty Segall - Bowery Ballroom - photos by P Squared - August 30th, 2013

Ty Segall is usually making a racket, stomping on the fuzz pedal and generally tearing shit up. But his latest album, Sleeper, delves into psych folk and is mostly acoustic. Likewise the tour for the album, which swept through NYC for two shows last week, took a similar approach, with Ty and his band sitting down and mostly "unplugged." They played Sleeper in full and then a set of "hits" from his other records. At Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday (8/29) he also worked in a couple of covers, Black Flag's "I've Had It" and, during the encore, Love's "Live and Let Live." Acoustic guitars may have been the engine, but Ty was no less loud or into it -- and it didn't stop the packed crowd from moshing or stage diving. Great show.

While I went to MHOW, our photographer was at Bowery Ballroom the next night (8/30) where Arp,  David Novick and Chis Cohen opened. Pictures from that whole show are in this post. Ty will be back in NYC in much rowdier form with his proto-metal band Fuzz next month to play  at Mercury Lounge on October 12 (tickets).

FYF Fest 2013
FYF Fest 2013

Its really a sad state of affairs when a band making a scheduled appearance is news, but nevertheless it was somewhat of a surprise that Death Grips did make their headlining appearance (on the Miranda stage) at the first day of FYF Fest in LA on Saturday (8/24) while Yeah Yeah Yeahs played at the adjacent Carrie stage (yes, stages were named after Sex & The City characters). The two-day festival, which took place in LA State Historic Park over the weekend, also featured many other notables, including appearances from TV on the Radio, FLAG, a reunion set from The Locust, as well as sets from names like The Breeders, Waxahatchee, METZ, Joyce Manor, Ty Segall (who's in NYC for two shows this week), and more. Pictures from FYF including all of the mentioned artists above -- as well as shots of Jim Hamilton, Jonah Ray, Kumail Nanjiana, Crystal Antlers, Charles Bradley, Toro y Moi, Classixx, Nosaj Thing, comedians and more -- are in this post.

We'll have pictures from Day 2 soon. More pics from FYF Fest Day 1 below...

serious bedhead: cover art to 'Sleeper'
IMAGE

It's been 10-months since the release of garage rock maniac Ty Segall's most recent album, Twins. That's nearly an eternity in Ty-time but, as discussed, his new one, Sleeper, will be out on August 20 via Drag City. The LP is now streaming in its entirety via NPR, and Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton will also be hosting a live listening party at 1PM ET this afternoon. After they play the new record, the usually interview-adverse Ty will join the pair to chat about it.

The largely acoustic Sleeper was written after losing his father to cancer last year and sees Ty at quite possibly his most honest. Shedding his overdriven guitar approach, Ty manages to show just how much his songwriting skills have advanced. Don't worry: it still rocks, just maybe not exactly in the way you thought it might. The 36-minute, 10-song effort isn't a scorcher like his recent stuff but it may make you appreciate Ty more. It's got a basis in late-'60s folk and features lush string arrangements made popular in rock around that time.

And don't forget, Ty's proto-metal trio Fuzz will welcome their self-titled debut on October 1 via In the Red. You can catch him on tour in both incarnations: he plays Sleeper at Music Hall of Williamsburg on August 29 (tickets) and Bowery Ballroom on August 30 (sold-out); then he'll be back with Fuzz at Mercury Lounge on October 12 (tickets).

All known Ty Segall // Fuzz dates are listed below...

Slint

Post-hardcore-leaning post-rock legends Slint haven't performed live in six years, but that will change this year when they play ATP End of An Era Part 2 at Pontins Holiday Camp in Camber Sands, UK. The festival runs from November 29 to December 1, and is being billed as the "last ever" UK Holiday Camp.

As mentioned, this year's festival is being co-curated by Loop, who are also performing, along with Mogwai, The Pop Group, Fennesz, Goat, Superchunk, Comets On Fire, Om, Girls Against Boys, Michael Rother (presents the music of Neu! and Harmonia), Ty Segall, Dirty Beaches, Hookworms, Balam Acab and more. Tickets for the fest are on sale now.

FUZZ

While Ty Segall has a new solo album/tour in August, for the moment he seems to be enjoying playing drums in his other band, the proto-metal leaning trio Fuzz. Following their debut single on Trouble in Mind and a recent tour (where they tore up Death by Audio), Fuzz have just announced their self-titled debut will be out October 1 via In the Red. You can download "Loose Sutres" from the album above, or stream it below. The LP's proggy cover art and tracklist are below too.

After his solo tour in August, Ty will be going out with FUZZ again for a proper North American tour which includes a stop in NYC: October 12 at Mercury Lounge. That and most of the other dates are with CCR Headcleaner, and the Chicago date coincides with The Men and Purling Hiss' just-announced tour. Tickets to the Mercury Lounge show go on sale Friday (7/12) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (7/10) at noon. All tour dates are listed below.

It probably goes without saying that long-running Williamsburg DIY spot Death by Audio gets a lot of good shows. Many of those are recorded  -- you may have noticed a microphone sticking out of the drop-ceiling tiles. DbA has cherry-picked a dozen of the best moments from last year for a book of flexis simply titled Live at Death by Audio 2012 that is being released by Famous Class at the end of July. That's the cover art above.

Bands featured include JEFF the Brotherhood, METZ, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, and A Place to Bury Strangers. It also features art by Brian Chippendale, Dave Singley, Perry Lubin, Matt Leins, Ron Rege Jr, Jon Vermilyea, and Brendan Nakahara.

Pre-orders are available now and comes with not only a digital version of the flexis but also a recording of the full Oh Sees / Ty Segall show. Full track list below.

Fuzz @ Death by Audio, 6/6/2013
Fuzz

The tireless Ty Segall brought his new trio, Fuzz, to NYC on Thursday (6/6) for two shows with Ex Cult: a free early show at Red Hook Park as part of Celebrate Brooklyn, and then later that night at Death by Audio where they were also joined by Pampers. Pictures from the latter are in this post.

Ty is no stranger behind the kit (he was Sic Alps' drummer for a while) and Fuzz almost seems like an excuse for him to go apeshit with a near constant barrage of fills. In the Black Sabbath/Blue Cheer school of proto metal, Fuzz clearly love this stuff and were pretty awesome at DbA, ending with a cover of King Crimson's "20th Century Schizoid Man."

Memphis' Ex Cult were pretty great too, playing a menacing brand of punk that seems rooted in the early '80s LA scene, with a little post-punk angularity too. Ty joined them on vocals for one song. (Ex Cult also opened for fellow Memphis residents The Oblivians the next day at Beekman Beer Garden.) I only caught the last song of Pampers' set and mainly remember them being very, very loud.

Ty Segall will be back in NYC, on guitar, for two shows in August. More pictures from Death by Audio below...

Ty Segall

As mentioned, Ty Segall's new, proto-metal-leaning band Fuzz (in which he plays drums and sings) will be playing a free Summerstage show at Red Hook Park on June 6 with Ex-Cult and DJ Jonathan Toubin. That show starts at 7 PM

If you were hoping they'd add another show somewhere small and sweaty, you're in luck: both Fuzz and Ex Cult will play later that same night at Death by Audio with Pampers also on the bill. $10 at the door which opens at 9 PM with bands starting at 9:45 PM.

Ex Cult will play again the next day (6/7) at the Seaport Music Festival, opening for Oblivians and then will be back in July with OBN IIIs. That Seaport Music Fest show is free and open to the public.

Meanwhile, Ty will be back for two shows in NYC in August around the time of his new solo album.

All Fuzz and Ex Cult tour dates are below.

Ty Segall in Chicago in February (more by James Richards IV)
Ty Segall

Ty Segall has been busy with his proto-metal-inspired band Fuzz (who play NYC soon), but not counting Ty's January reissues, it's been over 6 months since he released an album, which in the world of Ty Segall is like a century. Luckily, we can all breathe again, because last week he announced a new solo record, SLEEPER, will be out on August 20 via Drag City. No new music has been revealed from the album yet, but you can watch a trailer for the new album below.

Ty Segall was recently announced for LA's FYF Fest, which takes place this August, and he's since announced some other dates surrounding that fest. A full tour hasn't been revealed yet but we do know that he'll be coming to NYC on August 29 at Music Hall of Williamsburg and August 30 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for both NYC shows go on sale today (5/22) at noon.

All currently known dates are listed, along with the new album trailer and a video of Ty performing "You're The Doctor" from his last solo album, Twins, on 'Letterman' in 2012, below...
