His first album in forever (two years)! Ty glides smoothly into a wild area with a synthtasm of production redesign, dialling up a wealth of new guitar and keyboard settings. A seething statement of emotional austerity, “Harmonizer” enraptures the ear, while enabling Ty to cut through dense undergrowth, making groove moves for the body, mind and soul.

“Harmonizer.” It is out now digitally everywhere. Vinyl coming in October. It was recorded and co-produced by my friend Cooper Crain and features contributions by the Freedom Band and vocals and album art by my lovely wife Denée Segall.

“Feel Good” is from “Harmonizer,” released digitally on August 3, 2021 by Drag City. LP, CD,

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.

Ty Segall performs Despoiler of Cadaver on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Ty Segall has a mountain of song at his disposal and he’s capable of wielding boulders from it at any given moment in any situation, be it live or on record! His “Fried Shallots” EP came out a month ago to benefit the American Civil Liberties Union, but Ty Segall is liberally still touring off the back of January’s Self-Titled release, a masterpiece of his ever evolving catalog! Accompanied by the ever flowing Freedom Band, Ty is set to tackle the Southwest portion of our sketchily divided yet still damn fine country later this month (after a quick Canadian stop-over for two solo shows!)! One thing that unites us all is the power of rock n’ roll, goddammit, which is exactly what’s gonna be served up on a platter each and every night at the shows below, if you want to feel it, live and loud!
