It's been a year since we heard from Ty Segall, which, for the prolific Bay Area songwriter, may as well have been a decade. But don't worry, he's hardly been slacking off. Following up his two albums from last year, Sleeper and his self-titled debut with Fuzz, Segall is finally offering his newest LP later this month. Clocking in over 60 minutes on 17 tracks, Manipulator is easily most expansive album to date, for which he took a full month in the studio to record, and if the first single is any indication, it's going to be a scorcher. "Susie Thumb" packs the three-G's (glam, grunge, garage) into a spacy mix, highlighting by Segall's woozy vocals and fiery guitar virtuosity. Listen to this exclusive premiere now and pick up Manipulator on August 26 from Drag City Records.
