"Our salivating makes it all taste worse," croons Ty Segall in "Taste", the lead single from his forthcoming album, First Taste, due August 2nd. He's talking about us: how we're the masters of our own destiny, tellers of our own prophecy, makers of our own sickened choices. It's a warning, but this time, the finger is pointing back at him too. He's one with us. First Taste is an introspective set for Segall after the extroversions of 2018's Freedom's Goblin. Lines of struggle wind through the songs as Segall reflects on family, re-encountering pasts, anticipating futures. He skates through oneness, self-esteem, the parents - all the joys of a rain-filled childhood - while reaching outward in the here and now, feeling for a shared pulse.

Meanwhile, the production is far out! Segall's creative juices suggested some radical (in the older sense of the word) new instrumental territories: koto, recorder, bouzouki, harmoniser, mandolin, saxophones and brass, voices, and a sprinkling of keys. Segall occupies the drumset whenever it's heard on the left speaker, while Charles Moothart plays the kit on the right side. Segall's vocal prowess sits in fresh relief against his mutant orchestra, spooling tension through some of his most patient songs, his feral scream in complete control. Whatever the mood is, the pedal is pushed cleanly to the metal - and that means to the max of the lightest ballads ever, OR through the most raging rocks yet. Segall's song designs are all over the place, but unlike the freewheeling feast style of Freedom's Goblin, these twelve numbers form a tightly revolving cycle of song and sound that focuses thoughts.

Ty Segall and the Freedom Band will bring their electrifying live shows to LA, NYC, and Europe later this year. During these residencies, Segall will play First Taste in full, alongside select albums from his expansive catalogue. All tour dates, including newly-announced support and specifics on which album Segall will be playing each night, are below.

Ty Segall presents "Radio," a new single from his forthcoming album, First Taste, due August 2nd via Drag City. Just in time for the July 4th festivities (such as they are), "Radio" should satisfy all our barely-subsumed bloodlust and immutable desire to rule while also providing a majestically boomboxable anthem to revel along with at the cookout.

As "Taste," a number that "churns like a buzzsaw without forfeiting any melody" (Rolling Stone), continues to rise at radio, Segall's "Radio" sizzles with electric omnichord, and features percussion from Charles Moothart. Through layered vocals, Segall describes shedding an old identity, adopting a new one and accepting what he cannot change: "It makes me feel like I am living for free // While I'm watching the new radio // My anger has gone away // Replaced by my new name // I'm no longer empty // I need no family."

"'Radio' is a science non-fiction song," says Segall. "We live in a Cronenberg film. It has Videodrome saxoheadphones. I am a slave to the new radio and so are you."

First Taste is an introspective set for Ty Segall after the extroversions of 2018's Freedom's Goblin, yet just as steeped in hard beats. These twelve songs form a tightly revolving cycle of song and sound. Throughout, Segallreflects on family, re-encountering pasts, anticipating futures, and hits on oneness, self-esteem and the parents, while reaching outward, feeling for a shared pulse in the world around him. Meanwhile, Segall's creative juices suggested First Taste be created using koto, recorder, bouzouki, harmonizer, mandolin, saxophones and brass, voices, a sprinkling of keys, and dual drummers (Segall on the left, Moothart on the right). As always, Segall's vocals sit in fresh relief against his mutant orchestra, spooling tension through some of his most patient songs, his feral scream in complete control.

Segall will play First Taste in full, alongside select albums from his expansive catalogue, during his residencies in LA, NYC, Paris, London, Berlin, Haarlem and Antwerp. The specifics, including support and which album plus First Taste Segall & the Freedom Band will be playing each night, are included below.

Für mich eines der Top Highlights 2019 bisher. Verdammt gutes Album. Ty wird nie langweilig. Hier ohne Gitarren, dafür mit Keys/Synths, Mandolinen, griechischen Seiteninstrumenten etc. und es rockt trotzdem total gut. Experimente wie a capella Song auch super gelungen, ohne zu nerven. Hut ab, freue ,ich riesig ihn im Oktober wieder live zu sehen - 2 mal. Das neue Album spielt er beide male, dazu an einem Abend Melted und am anderen Manipulator.

First Taste - 9/10
