Transmissions :: Ty Segall

For the last decade-and-a-half, Ty Segall has reliably cranked out records that show off his range, ping-ponging from scuzzed out glam rock to chiming folk ballads. He joins us this week to discuss his proggy new album Three Bells, his dogs, the influence of T Rex, and much more.

Ty Segall :: Zebulon Session

Captured in June of 2020, prior to L.A. opening back up, Ty Segall’s absolute incendiary one-man band session at Zebulon in Frogtown. The incredibly tight 30 minute performance finds Segall working up a strange alchemy against pre-recorded backing tracks, recontextualizing seven nuggets from his catalog.

Ty Segall :: Harmonizer

There’s a fine tradition of albums named after the recording studios that birthed them, so in the modern era of so much at-home recording, it’s almost a warm and welcoming anachronism when it happens. Harmonizer, the first recording to be completed at Ty Segall’s new Harmonizer Studios, is just that. Coming two years after Segall’s last album under his own name, Harmonizer is a svelte 10 songs and 35 minutes that hums along channeling its namesake. But it’s also a bit of a coming out party for a more synth-driven sound for Segall, and the results are one of the tightest albums of his career.
