SOME STUFFS: Mac DeMarco shares new video for “Dreaming” as he prepares for tour in February


A man with a wig, looking quite dapper while strolling near the shore of a river, playing a guitar and making some decent pop/rock? This is Mac DeMarco and it is possible that he was sleeping when he made this video, for this could be the soundtrack of his “Dreaming”. Or something. The video ends with him covered in multicolored something, but you’ll have to see it to know what it is. It is from his Captured Tracks album, simply called 2. He will be going on tour beginning next month, including a stop at this year’s SXSW, catch him if you can like Pokemon:

VIDEO: Ty Segall’s “The Hill”


There’s an image in this new video by Ty Segall that I hope will catch on as a trend but becomes long lasting: plushie drummers. I welcome this with open arms and fur. The video is for the song “The Hill”, and as long as you don’t go over it, you can be forever young like the anti-Rod Stewart and plush out all day and night.

The song? This will be on Segall’s Twins album (Drag City) due out in a month, which you can pre-order right now via Amazon. What you can also do right now is glance over the information below, what is known in the biz as “concert dates”. Segall will be all over the Americas this month with Thee Oh Sees. He’ll then take a two week break before he’ll be in San Francisco for the Treasure Island Festival, and then another break to prepare for a European tour in November, so hop on a joyride and hoot:

SOME STUFFS: Ty Segall & White Fence unite for new album

Photobucket
SHINE THE SPOTLIGHT ON THIS ONE!!! An album cover with a photograph taken with a fish-eye lens? Or at least using a fish-eye filter? I’m sold, I don’t even want to hear it, nor do I want to know more. But I must tell you anyway, for you’re curious, aren’t cha?

Ty Segall and White Fence are releasing a collaborative album on April 24th via Drag City called Hair. The press release was confusing, but I was able to isolate words like “poppy lunges”, “acoustic strolls”, “freak-downs”, and “harmony vocals and compression”. What does all means, and what the equation will sound like, it beats me. Maybe that’s the point: for the music to beat you. Hopefully not in a Chris Brown fashion.

Both Ty Segall and White Fennce will go on tour together, and they’ll also be doing shows on their own here and there. Where? Here:
