Face it, the last ten years or so have been a Blur – so much shit going down, good and bad – and a lot of music too. It doesn’t look like its gonna get any easier for Anybody to get their bearing, so Ty Segall and Sea Note have gotten together a special box to help you reorient your head.

This one’s for the freak, the fan, the head. Pig Man Lives is a stack of raw germs that were blown up in the world as Ty Segall releases over this last golden decade or so – specifically, the demos that bred ManipulatorFreedom’s GoblinEmotional MuggerTwinsTy Segall, Slaughterhouse and Sleeper. Each finished record had its own unique aim and intention, but when you hear tracks from 2007 next to tracks from 2015, then 2012 cutting in after 2017, the splatter allows you to experience the continuum of a whole body of work exploding over and over again, in a burst of freedom that accompanies an initial song sketch.

You’re bound to feel different after you’ve spent any kind of quality time with The Pig Man: non-linear reorientation, taking you back and forward over the course of eight sides and 48 songs, there’s even a few that haven’t seen the light of day before! For some of these songs, further evolution brought even more out of them. And some are perfect this way, with rough edges and little details you’re not gonna believe you’ve lived without.

As sure as Pig Man Lives, you won’t have to anymore. Out 11/1,

Freedom’s Goblin is honkin’ down the highway as we speak. With axes, electric keys, vocal cords and full batterie, natch (plus saxophone), Ty Segall and the gang on the Freedom’s Goblin World Freedom Tour (with the Europe legs kicking in late May) are lifting up our people one city at a time, with music played in exchange for a slice of OUR LIVES (and a measly few bux)! What better a time for a new single! It’s a different take on the album-opener (and live fave) “Fanny Dog”! Recorded with Boo Mitchell in Memphis at Royal Studios, the chooglin’ groove, dancing barrelhouse piano and fat horns on this version send a ‘specially warm, soulful vibration out to the listener everywhere! GO see the show – get tix for the one coming down the road – but if you’re out of the way, or just simply can’t, why not give “Fanny Dog” a walk – she’ll love you for it!

Watch Ty and The Freedom Band rip their cover of Hot Chocolate’s “Every 1’s a Winner” and their own weirdly funky “Despoiler Of Cadaver” on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’  Both tracks from his just-released 10th album, Freedom’s Goblin. You don’t see a lot of crowd surfing on late night talk shows, but it happens here. Watch both performances below.

If you haven’t checked out Freedom’s Goblin yet, it’s easily Ty’s most ambitious album yet, and biggest, clocking in at 85 minutes over 19 tracks, which used to be enough for at least two of his albums if not three. Like a lot of double albums it’s a little all-over-the-place but there’s a lot to love as well.

Every Ty Segall Solo Album, Ranked

Ty Segall has been all over our radar recently, but that’s only because the man seriously rocks. The multi-instrumentalist from Laguna Beach, California., made his Jimmy Kimmel Live! debut last night, joined by his Freedom BandMikal Cronin, Charles Moothart, Emmett Kelly and Ben Boye. Segall played two songs on Jimmy Kimmel, a cover of Hot Chocolate’s Every 1’s a Winner” and a web-exclusive performance of “Despoiler Of Cadaver,” off his new album Freedom’s Goblin.

Freedom’s Goblin’s release was last Friday, the album “a testament not only to the vision of Ty Segall, but to the work he’s put in over the past 10 years.” The album has already been cited as among the best for this year of 2018.

Segall will go on an extensive would tour with the Freedom Band in support of his new album. The group will make their way through Japan before starting their month-long tour of North America in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii, ending their stay in North America at Berkley, Calif.’s UC Theatre. New dates have been added to the band’s tour, taking them through Europe and the U.K.—find their full tour slate below. You can stream Freedom’s Goblin via Apple Music here and purchase the new album, out now through Drag City Records, here.

Watch Segall perform “Every 1’s a Winner” and “Despoiler Of Cadaver” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

19 tracks strong, with an unrestricted sense of coming together to make this album. It wants you to get your head straight – but first, the process will make your head spin. Back in the ‘Twins’ days, there was talk about the schizophrenia of Ty’s outlook; today, it’s super-dual, with loads of realities all folding back on each other. We’re tracking five or six full-blown personalities, unconcerned with convention or continuity.

The songs came in the flow of the year: days of vomit and days of ecstasy and escape too and days between. The rulebook may have been tossed but ‘Freedom’s Goblin’ is thick with deep songwriting resources, be it stomper, weeper, ballad, screamer, banger or funker-upper, all diverted into new Tydentities – each one marking a different impasse, like a flag whirling into a knot, exploding and burning on contact, in the name of love and loathing.

‘Freedom’s Goblin’ wears a twisted production coat: tracks were cut all around, from LA to Chicago to Memphis, whether chilling at home or touring with the Freedom Band. Five studios were required to get all the sounds down, engineered by Steve Albini, F Bermudez, Lawrence ‘Boo’ Mitchell and of course, Ty himself. The goal was getting free, embracing any approach necessary to communicate new heights and depths, new places for the fuzz to land among octaving harmonies, dancefloor grooves, synths, saxes and horns, jams, post-Nicky-Hopkins R&B electric piano vibes, children-of-the-corn psycho-rebellions, old country waltzes and down-by-the-river shuffles. Basically, the free-est pop songs Ty’s ever put on tape and one about his dog too.

Having conquered a variety of genre albums in recent years, the genre this time around is that there isn’t a genre—just a dedication to the sanctity of the music and music alone.

Ty Segall has only tweeted once since 2014. He averages about one Facebook post per three months—and even then, it’s almost exclusively advertising a show. Every “Ty Segall” Instagram account is a fan-made page with a couple dozen photos or fewer. He’s not on Snapchat. His website is updated with only bare-bones contact info, a couple videos, and a simple discography. Even his current label, Drag City Records, doesn’t post its catalog to Spotify or Apple Music or Tidal, thereby making it impossible to hear the majority of Segall’s studio albums via any streaming service. Ty Segall indeed embraces an old-school rock and roll sensibility, from a firm belief in the sanctity of the full-length record to his fuzz-heavy analog aesthetic. But, more accurately put, he merely holds one specific thing in much higher regard than the influence of changing business models or technological advances: personal freedom.

Freedom’s Goblin is the latest among many Ty Segall albums: 19 tracks strong, filling four sides of vinyl nonstop, with an unrestricted sense of coming together to make an album. It wants you to get your head straight — but first, the process will make your head spin! Back in the Twins days, we talked about the schizophrenia of Ty’s outlook; today, it’s super-dual, with loads of realities all folding back on each other. On any given side, we’re tracking five or six full-blown personalities, unconcerned with convention or continuity.

This is Freedom’s Goblin — one track engendering, the next one oppressing, violence up in the mix — a look at everything around that Ty used to make the songs.  The songs came in the flow of the year: days of vomit and days of ecstasy and escape too, and days between. The rulebook may have been tossed, but Freedom’s Goblin is thick with deep songwriting resources, be it stomper, weeper, ballad, screamer, banger or funker-upper, all diverted into new Tydentities — each one marking a different style. Freedom’s Goblin wears a twisted production coat: tracks were cut all around, from L.A. to Chicago to Memphis, whether chilling at home or touring with the Freedom Band. Five studios were required to get all the sounds down, engineered by Steve Albini, F. Bermudez, Lawrence “Boo” Mitchell and of course, Ty himself.

The goal was getting free, embracing any approach necessary to communicate new heights and depths, new places for the fuzz to land among octaving harmonies, dancefloor grooves, synths, saxes and horns, jams, post-Nicky-Hopkins r’n’b electric piano vibes, children-of-the-corn psycho-rebellions, old country waltzes and down-by-the-river shuffles. Basically, the free-est pop songs Ty’s ever put on tape. And one about his dog, too! .

We all want our Freedom. The freedom to love or to be alone; to be pretty or pretty ugly; the freedom to turn the other cheek or to turn up the volume. And of course, the freedom to make just about any kind of song you think will free people when they hear it. But there’s that goblin of freedom too — and once you let it out of the bottle, it can fuck with you, so . . . take it or leave it. Go away or go all the way in. Live free and die! BUT be careful what you wish for .  .
