As a frontrunner in lo-fi revival that has emerged in SF and beyond over the last couple of years, Ty Segall is a busy guy these days.
He’s released seven solo records in the past four years, with songs ranging from noisy, distorted, lo-fi garage-punk rock to psychedelic, slightly less lo-fi beach-goth rock to the slower tempos and more melodic sounds heard on his latest LP 2011’s Goodbye Bread (Drag City).
With a new album to be released on April 2 and yet another album he just started recording last week that is scheduled for release in September, Segall is showing no signs of slowing. Although he has a touring band, Segall records all of the parts on his solo albums alone.
He’s doing a full sweep of the California coast before heading off on a tour of the United States and Canada that will last until late May.
The Great American Music Hall show on March 2 features support from White Fence, Mikal Cronin and Feeling of Love. Cronin has a history of collaboration with Segall. Both are Orange County transplants living in SF, and the two were members of the band Epsilons. They also worked together to create the album Reverse Shark Attack (Burger Records and Kill Shaman Records, 2009).
Tim Presley, aka White Fence, is also a crucial part of Segall’s tour. The two recently finished recording a psychedelic-infused garage rock album together, Hair, which will also be released in late April via Drag City.
Ty Segall plays the Great American Music Hall on March 2 with White Fence, Mikal Cronin and Feeling of Love. The show starts at 8:30pm and tickets are $13-$15.
