Were Ty Segall to start his entire career over again, he might not do it under the name Ty Segall. It’s a bit late for that now, well over a decade since he emerged as the princeling of San Francisco’s garage rock revival. Back then, he was a college student in a city vibrating with […]
Bikini Kill have expanded their 2024 tour dates with a newly-announced run of shows in North America. The riot grrrl legends will kick off their 2024 tour dates in Mexico City on March 3rd, making stops across South America and Europe before returning to the United States with a show in Los Angeles on August […]
Bikini Kill have announced a new round of North American tour dates for 2024. The outing follows their March shows in Mexico and South America and a tour of Europe and the UK in June, beginning in Los Angeles on August 15 and running through September 11 in Baltimore. See all dates below.
Bikini Kill, ‘Rebel Girl’ “When she talks, I hear the revolution/In her hips, there’s revolution,” Kathleen Hanna announced on “Rebel Girl,” the Nineties riot-grrrl battle cry that has come to be revered as perhaps the greatest feminist punk anthem of all time. The song is so potent the band recorded and released it three different times, […]
While the sonic tones and textures on the album evoke certain classic staples of Americana, soul and rock and roll, Cornelius’ lyrics anchor the songs to a deeply personal place. Described by Pitchfork as “funny, self-effacing, and honest” she sings of a miscarriage, a messy romantic affair, and the frustrations that come with having a […]
Today, New Zealand-raised, Los Angeles-based artist Jess Cornelius announces her sophomore album CARE/TAKING, out June 14th via her new label Tender Loving Empire Records, and a North American tour. In conjunction, she presents the album’s lead single/video, “People Move On.” Cornelius writes arresting songs that capture the disorientation and endless possibilities of being in flux. On CARE/TAKING, she sings of personal upheaval with striking lucidity and emotional […]
A new album from Ty Segall during any 12-month period once seemed like a certainty. The psych/garage singer/songwriter has probably forgotten about more songs he’s written than most of us could ever hope to commit to tape, and with a standard of quality that’s hovered reliably between kickass and raucously fun. He released 10 of […]
The 15th solo album from the prolific songwriter is epic, indeed. Its sprawling 15-track mosaic includes plenty of recognizable chunks from Segall’s usual musical touchstones (guitar psychedelia, garage rock, early-’70s glam and prog) which he keeps finding arresting new ways to mix, match, and juxtapose. With the exception of the heavy-riffing “Move,” which was recorded […]
If you believe in everything having a natural ebb and flow, then you probably think that an artist’s creative output has at least one dud. Out of all the great things someone can do, there’s always an instance of something being mediocre or subpar. It’s part of the deal when it comes to forging an […]
Just when you thought you knew everything about the modern renaissance man Ty Segall, he released a new album. Segall’s imaginative world of psychedelic garage rock seems to make a hyperbolized impression of itself on Three Bells, the monstrous new LP. Imagine walking into a carnival on another planet, colors unrecognizable to the human eye […]
One of our most prolific and seemingly tireless songwriters, Ty Segall has never shied away from trying something new. On his latest album Three Bells, the Laguna Beach, California musician draws on some of his favourite, lasting influences — psych rock, folk, heavy metal — and twists them to produce one of his most conceptual […]
Kudos to Ty Segall, who won the internet today by releasing the video and tune “My Best Friend.” Since 2008, Ty Segall has played out his hunger to be free through a dozen solo LPs, a variety of collaborative projects, and a rippling eclecticism of songs, sounds and production, all conversing from album to album in a […]
After sharing the songs “Void” and “Eggman,” Ty Segall announced his new album Three Bells in November and unveiled “My Room.” Today, just a few weeks before the LP’s release, he’s unleashing the wholesome final single “My Best Friend” with an adorable music video.
Do you like dogs? So does Ty Segall and the video for his new single “My Best Friend” features his adorable dachshunds, Fanny and Herman. The song’s a keeper, too, and downright poppy. New album Three Bells is out January 26 via Drag City.
“For a good two hours a pit swirled in the center of the room like a sweaty maelstrom of pent up youthful energy while Memo PST — playing only their second show got things going with a tight and ripping set”
10. Bikini Kill, Franklin Music Hall, April 7 — I waited almost 30 years for this one. The riot-grrl pioneers led by Kathleen Hanna’s previous show in Philadelphia was on the rooftop of a Drexel parking garage in 1994. The influential band whose “Revolution Girl Style Now!” call to action still resonates didn’t disappoint with a […]
Mac DeMarco’s new album may be entirely instrumental (and based on different cities he’s visited) but even still, “Vancouver 2“ has a melancholy sound about it that’ll let you catch a sad vibe without having to listen to lyrics.
This prolific garage-rocker is easy to take for granted. With the exception of Robert Pollard, nobody in indie rock puts out more music. At some point, it becomes impossible to keep up with the output, though Segall’s batting average for putting out quality material remains admirable. His next album, Three Bells, drops January 26.
SAN FRANCISCO — One of the most gifted songwriters and musicians to emerge from the San Francisco garage-rock scene during the late 2000s, Ty Segall plays a rare solo acoustic show at the Sebastiani Theatre in Sonoma on Dec. 1st.
Yesterday (November 7), King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard took to social media to announce the upcoming 2024 tour, which will see the six-piece perform 58 concerts across South America, Europe and North America, beginning in March and ending in November
Taken from the prolific songwriter’s proggy new album Three Bells (due January 2024), My Room offers a sort of warped, spiritual counterpart to Brian Wilson’s ode to the comfort and safety of your inner sanctum. Here Segall’s electric guitar is left knocking on the door of his room – an increasingly invasive presence that tries to pierce its way through […]
