"...Playback checked in this week with Ty Segall, who loads in on Tuesday at Mohawk with locals Holy Wave and Hidden Ritual. The L.A.-based garage guitar poet talked songwriting, ATX’s OBN III’s, and his new acoustic LP, Sleeper, which he’ll perform tomorrow...."
"...Did I sign up for Spotify just now? To access inveterate Chronicle blogger William Harries Graham’s playlist to this week’s “Hot August Nights” jukebox, it appears yes – finally. Having built my own version of the South Austin Popular Culture Center at work and home – CentPop – I hadn’t foreseen the pressing need to dive down a Ty Segall wormhole until today...."
"...Last night from a Mohawk balcony overlooking Mikal Cronin, I wasn’t thinking about Ty Segall, the San Francisco psych rocker who helped raise Cronin into the act he is today. I was thinking of local boy wonder Ben Kweller..."
"...› Real Ale, the same company that partnered with local rockers the Sword to create Iron Swan Ale, hosts a brilliant Cans for Cans food drive this Saturday at the Browning Hangar (4550 Mueller), in which you trade two nonperishable food goods for one ice cold can of Real Ale beer. Even better, the event features performances from 2 Fer 1 (Graham Wilkinson and Shawn Nelson), the Preservation, and Bobby Jealousy, 2-6pm. Ty Segall's Requiem..."
"...Ty Segall crowdsurfed up to the balcony of the Mohawk last Saturday as fans in the pit bounced him to the upper deck. Mohawk general manager Cody Cowan reckons that's the first time a performer's executed the multi-level crowdsurf at the venue..."
"...Here, bandleader Ty Segall, who clocks countless musical side projects including collaborations with fellow FFF performer Mikal Cronin, trades his guitar for the drum kit. A known jokester, hijinks commenced even before the music when Segall sustained the Halloween spirit by wearing a creepy baby mask...."
"...White Fence Fri., 9:30pm, Elevation Ampitheater Six studio LPs and two live discs since adopting the moniker White Fence in 2010, Tim Presley's lo-fi psych ranges from warped bedroom tapes to explosive electric jams. Last year's Drag City debut, For the Recently Found Innocent, stepped up from four-track production with frequent collaborator Ty Segall, while still keeping the fuzz and aural intoxicants intact. – Doug Freeman..."
"...In the past decade, she's produced a series of discs, each better than the last, dealing with hope and freedom in poetic and revelatory ways. – Jim Caligiuri Ty Segall..."
"...The line's emblematic of the meta-internal struggle any aspirational twentysomething living in America today might face, but it's also represents the growing pains Cronin's confronted in his young career. Now 28, he's spent his adulthood entirely on the road, first as bassist for longtime friend Ty Segall, a gig he maintains today..."
"...Millennial garage-psych wunderkind Ty Segall may yet usurp Jack White as the savior of rock. The California polymath boasts a similarly furious productivity and consistency across multiple projects..."
"...Via singer Ty Segall, familiarity ensues early on this power trio's sophomore LP. In this outfit, the busy "Girlfriend" songwriter bandies his wonted six-string for a noble go on the drums..."
"...11pm, Mohawk Patio Longtime Ty Segall collaborator Mikal Cronin successfully stepped into the spotlight with his self-titled 2011 solo debut. What makes Cronin's garage rock so compelling is anything-goes arrangements that transition from an homage to the Beach Boys into a flute solo atop a hardcore bridge..."
"...A two-time Scribble Jam champ, Rhymefest drops second album El Che in May. – Chase Hoffberger Ty Segall..."
"...Evil Triplet deserves a Levitation slot at the very least, and/or co-bills with Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees. Marsh says it's down to the audience the band deserves stumbling across them..."
"...Bludgeoning and thrashing rock & roll comes aplenty thanks to a pair of L.A. entrants, Death Valley Girls and the Ty Segall-produced Feels..."
"...That soft/hard progression aptly illustrates the bandleader’s broad palatability in that he can easily mesh with the lysergic Carson Creek crowd as well as the harder-rocking FFF roster. The part-time Ty Segall bandmate didn’t address the crowd much or use his charisma to command control of said audience, which was attentive but lethargic amid Friday’s grey skies and sporadic drizzle...."
"...Scuzzed San Francisco pedigree or no, multi-instrumentalist Mikal Cronin's critical path always arced toward aspirant pop. The Ty Segall compatriot employs full-bodied arrangements and summit-cresting guitar solos to craft a grand statement on solo LP three..."
"...Yours truly needs zero excuse to throw down greenbacks at a record store, but since the headquarters for presenting HAAM sponsor Whole Foods sits 20-30 yards from Mecca – donating a portion of the day’s proceeds to the non-profit – Waterloo proved the perfect spot to wait out the afternoon downpour. $55: • Alligator Stomp: Cajun & Zydeco Classics (Rhino, 1990) • Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas, Follow Me Chicken (Rounder, 1993) • Highlights from Crescent City Soul: The Sound of New Orleans 1947-1974 (EMI, 1996) • Thee Oh Sees, Carrion Crawler/The Dream EP (In the Red, 2011) • Ty Segall & Mikal Cronin, Reverse Shark Attack (In the Red, 2012) • Watkins Family Hour (Thirty Tigers, 2015)..."
"...Sambol's unconcerned that he walked away from burgeoning success when the Strange Boys silently split in 2012. They'd had their triumphs: indie record deals, overseas followings, opening slots for Jay Reatard, Ty Segall, Julian Casablancas, and Spoon...."
