Ty Segall's new single and LP to be released by Drag City cause why the hell wouldn't they?

That rambunctious little phenom of a rockster Ty Segall is up to his antics again. You guessed it — the Beiber of SF garage rock is throwing out a new 7-inch AND a new LP, both gettin’ released within nearly a month of each other. So you’re saying to yourself, “what the fuck else is new, that dude records a new 7-inch every time he takes a dump and throws out LPs like it ain’t no thing.” The difference here, my friend, is that both of these records are being released by the illustrious Drag City Records, who, like Sean Connery in The Highlander, have taken it upon themselves to train Ty in the ways of the immortal. The only difference being that, instead of beheading his foes in a bloody struggle, he is being provided with mass distribution and PR. Two sides of the same coin, really.

The “I Can Feel It” 7-inch single comes out May 17, so you can go ahead and preorder that baby over at the Drag City webstore. His newest full-length Goodbye Bread is coming out June 21. The prodigal son also has some tourdates rolling up soon. Check those out below.
