Here's something you might not know about me: I really like rock n' roll. Specifically guitar rock (big admission, I know.) There's something about electric guitars, loud amplifiers, big kick drums and craft beer that resonates to the core of my riff-loving soul.
If you ask me (which I realize you didn't (sorry,)) the world needs more fuzzed-out, reverb-drenched guitar, bass and drum bands. Who knows, maybe we'd finally achieve world peace if it happened; I doubt it, but weirder things have (not) happened.
So, on to the point. Ty Segall is coming out with a new record, "Manipulator" (you can listen to it here,) and I'm really excited about it. It's loud, fast and loose, and manages to simultaneously conjure a care-free and "get after it" sentiment. That's no easy task. Mr. Segall and his band (which features the fantastic Mikal Cronin) played Conan recently, and the performance was quite good. Watch below, get stoked and drink a good beer.
