((Ty Segall)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

San Francisco's Ty Segall (he used to play solo, but now he's got two other dudes making noise with him too) is a big part of the small-but-burgeoning San Francisco lo-fi garage-punk scene.

Along with a bunch of other super solid bands coming out of that City by that Bay (Thee Oh Sees and Girls immediately come to mind), Ty Seagall makes hyper-melodic rock that's buried claustrophobically under multiple layers of fidelity-challenged fuzz.

His dirty and bluesy and psych-y guitar riffs, struggling to breath under dense sheets of drone and reverb, somehow manage to scratch and claw their way to the song's surface, forming a pretty poppy melody. It's all very messy and lovely and loud. You can even sort of dance to it, too.

Segall has a full length out on Goner Records (home to another one of our favorite garage-punks, Eddy Current Supression Ring) and he'll be playing out often in support of it.
