Last year, Ty Segall released three full-length albums, sold out countless shows around the globe (or maybe we're just bad at counting - what comes after fifteen again, infinity?), and made his late night television debut on CONAN in October followed up by a performance on the Late Show With David Letterman in November. After all the votes were cast and ballots counted, truth was triumphant to find Ty crouched upon a pile of year-end praise-carnage for his solo album, Twins (out now on Drag City), not to mention his mind-blending White Fence collaboration, Hair (out ALSO on Drag City) and the grave-robbering R-A-W-K in the U-S-A of Slaughterhouse. Was it all enough? Does merely appropriate praise and good fortune tame the wyld TY-ger and sate his well-hunger? It does hell damn NOT! This sweet sabre-tooth fiends on fresh flesh daily and calls his own shots, third-eye wide open: when to rest, where to lie, and who to lay, OK? Twins' latest single, "Would You Be My Love" b/w "For Those Who Weep," runs through the jungle January 22nd, but Ty kicks off his first full North American tour in support of Twins in his hometown of San Francisco, this weekend! Want a glimpse into the rock ‘n roll orgy that’s about to descend on every half-decent, mother-lovin’ town this side of the Atlantic come Friday? Shut up and watch the gruesome new video for Twins’ track, “Thank God For Sinners,” then look inward and thank hell for the shimmerin' gift of Ty Segall.
