Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s song, featured on The Midday Show with Cheryl Waters, is “Feel” by Ty Segall from the 2014 album Manipulator on Drag City.

Ty Segall - Feel (MP3)

When we first received a copy of Manipulator, one of our DJs suggested a new category for rotation: Light, Medium, Heavy, and Ty Segall. That's how much everyone here at KEXP loves the new record. To make it, Segall, who's normally prone to releasing multiple records by multiple projects each year, took his time to weave a masterful spell of rock 'n' roll wizardry, crafting 17 tracks with about every kind of rock you can imagine – glam, psych, garage, pop, metal and boogie – in his cleanest, tightest recording yet. Though it's nearly impossible to pick just one (we debuted another back in August), today's featured song, "Feel", draws many of those elements into one mind-bending euphoric jam and highlights Ty's dizzying falsetto, his blazing fretwork, and pummeling drums. But it's not a song you need to hear about... you just need to hear it, and you will instantly feel.

Ty Segall has been on tour this fall and just finished a series of U.S. dates with Seattle's own La Luz. He's in Europe now, and doesn't yet have any NW dates scheduled. But how could he stay away for long? Keep checking for updates on his touring here and on Facebook. While you wait, spend time with his interactive music video for "Manipulator" here and watch the recently released video for "The Singer" below:
