Ty Segall - Freedom's goblin


18.10.2017 - 20:44- Newsbeitrag

Ty Segall reaches deep down into his deep bag of rocks and pulls out an uptempo dance number, an armload of guitars and a hardcore jam, urging us ultimately to jailbreak from the self-imposed thought prison we've all been raised in. No, tonight's not the night, do it now! Denée Segall's lead vocals hammer home "Meaning" with unbridled strength: "I see fear in freedom..." Is this what's holding us back? Ask yourself, man!

Ty Segall & The Freedom Band Tour Dates:

Fri. Nov. 3 - Los Angeles, CA @ Lodge Room (LA United for Puerto Rico benefit)

Sat. Dec. 9 - Mexico City, MX @ Hipnosis Festival

Bang, bang, blammo! Ty Segall can't stop pumping out the songs - and if your problem is that he's got too many songs for you to hear, lucky you with your cute little problem! As Ty switches gears from rock to punk to pop music and then elsewhere, a wealth of great songs and singing and music is coming down fast; later we'll have time to think about it. For now, ponder this new one:
"The Main Pretender" aims to cull the herd by focusing its sights on a greatest common multiple of our society - people who just can't see the forest for the head up their ass! Driven by an acidulous alto sax lick and a roiling bass line, "The Main Pretender" bounces like rubber and sticks like glue, exploding into a middle-eight-chorus progression that there's no coming back from - and so there's no need to even try. Mikal Cronin's saxophone, so urbane and sophisticated on the previous "My Lady's On Fire," here reaches for notes that were never wrote (perhaps a suggestion to pretenders everywhere to get free and reach for something outside of themselves instead!), setting the stage for a burning guitars-and-saxes-and-vocs climax. The production, with rough edges not only intact but deployed for maximum positive impact, is a marvel, forcing "The Main Pretender" into our frontal lobes, where it just won't quit. They never do!

Freedom's Goblin cover art


Freedom's Goblin is the new Ty Segall album: 19 tracks strong, filling four sides of vinyl nonstop, with an unrestricted sense of coming together to make an album. Out January 26th via Drag City with a North American tour to follow, it wants you to get your head straight - but first, the process will make your head spin! On any given side, 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's 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 in the name of love and loathing. Whether chilling at home or on tour with the Freedom Band, tracks were cut at five studios in LA, Chicago and Memphis, 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, seeking 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 bunch of pop songs Ty's ever put on tape - free to love or to be alone; to be pretty or pretty ugly; free to turn the other cheek or to turn up the volume. And of course, free to make just about any kind of song that'll free people when they hear it - because we're ALL Goblins and we ALL want our Freedom!

This feeling comes alive in "Every 1's a Winner," the sixth Freedom's Goblin pre-release share (a record for Drag City!), including last night's sneak peek, big band debut of "Fanny Dog" on CONAN. "Every 1's a winner, baby that's the truth" - truly, a much-needed message for our times! As in, the kind of message we don't expect anyone anywhere saying anytime soon. Ty Segall is naturally delivering this message specially to a special someone of his own, the kind to whom makin' love is such a thrill - but you too are free to be special to someone also, so long as you realize that with such freedom comes great responsibility. Ty covers Hot Chocolate here as if he'd been funkin' since he electric slid out the cradle, guiding "Every 1's a Winner" into a high-flying, hard-driving expression made of his own kind of ecstatic soul. The sound of 2018 (and 2017!) will be much improved by its presence, and everything else on the forthcoming Freedom's Goblin. So turn it up, and get down.

Frisch rezensiert.

Falsches Cover, oder?

Macht richtig Spaß! In seinem Stilmix hat das ein bisschen was von einem Best Of. Oder einer Reise durch die Rockgeschichte mit Stooges-Schlagseite im letzten Drittel.

ja, richtig starkes Album mal wieder... ich glaube aber, dass er an Manipulator nicht mehr so locker rankommen wird - das war sein Granatenalbum!

Die 6/10 ist natürlich völliger Quatsch.
Meiner Meinung nach wäre da ne leichte 8/10 mehr angebracht gewesen.
