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:
