It is not an overstatement to say that 2012 was the year of Ty Segall. Orange Country rock n' roller somehow managed to release three albums last year and spent endless hours on the road, while participating in a number of festivals such as SXSW, CMW, and NXNE. I found his name included in best-of articles throughout the year wherever I go.
Segall kicked off 2013 with a North American tour in support of his latest album, Twins and released a brand new peculiar video, Thank God For Sinners. This song indicates that this young gun is not confined within his main genre of lo-fi garage rock, which set him apart from other musicians by far. Sparkles of glam rock in the tune shine through the entire song and spices up his psychedelic garage melodies. When I first saw his performance of this song on Conan last year, I got goose pumps all over. His charismatic performance reminded me of the moment that I witnessed Jack White on TV when I was teen. (White Stripes at the time) That's how excited I am for Segall to see what he can deliver in 2013.
If you would like to witness what I mean in person, you are in luck. Ty Segall is performing on Wednesday, February 6th at the Phoenix Threatre.
