As if putting out three great albums in one year wasn’t enough, Ty Segall has formed another new band. The ambitious performer is joined by Ty Segall Band guitarist Charlie Moothart in the appropriately titled Fuzz.
The group’s debut 7″, “This Time I Got a Reason” b/w “Fuzz’s Fourth Dream” on Trouble in Mind Records, is already sold out, but you can stream both cuts below.
Ty Segall will release his third album of 2012, following Hair, his collaboration with White Fence, and Slaughterhouse with Ty Segall Band, this fall. The upcoming Twins will be a solo album.
The album’s first single, “The Hill,” sounds like a heavy, distorted reworking of Revolver or a less-psyched-out Tame Impala. Segall’s guitars and drums are going full blast, but his breathy vocals (really ringing of Lennon or Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker) are even higher in the mix.
“The Hill” single comes out September 4 and Twins comes out October 9 on Drag City. See the album’s tracklist and artwork after the jump.
Ty Segall and his touring band have been in the studio recording a new album, Slaughterhouse. The group, billed as Ty Segall Band, have already released one track, “Wave Goodbye,” from the album.
Another new track surfaced this week. “I Bought My Eyes” is much cleaner and more upbeat than the other track. It starts off with steady, echoey vocals, before picking up speed, eventually evolving into a blaring garage-rock instrumental.
Slaughterhouse is out June 26 on In the Red.
Ty Segall’s collaboration with White Fence, titled Hair, just came out. But he’s got two more albums coming out this year — a solo LP and one with his touring band.
Ty Segall Band features his regular collaborators Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moothart and Emily Rose Epstein. Their debut album, Slaughterhouse, is coming out this summer.
The album’s first single, “Wave Goodbye,” shows that Slaughterhouse isn’t just a regular Ty Segall album. The band take a much sludgier approach to lo-fi rock than Segall’s solo work. It keeps a steady tempo for most of the song, until ramping up at the end for a killer solo. It’s much heavier, but none of the Stooges-style garage-punk gets lost in the distortion.
Slaughterhouse is out June 26 on In the Red Records.

I can’t really think of a better collaboration than Ty Segall and White Fence. The California garage rockers are putting out an album titled Hair on Drag City. Segall played drums and rhythm guitar on the LP, and Tim Presley (aka White Fence) played bass and lead guitar.
The psychedelic “I Am Not a Game” is our first taste of the collaboration. The eight-track Hair is out April 24. Presley’s also been busy prepping a new White Fence double album, Family Perfume, due out April 3 on Woodsist.
