After launching his solo career back in 2008, Ty Segall has been known for producing knee-jerk records that have kept his fans on the edge of their seats. Whether it be between songs or albums, Segall has a knack for keeping his listeners guessing. Each album examines different levels of his musicianship and every song tells us something new. In his most recent venture, Segall has created a playlist that allows his audience to explore a more cohesive musical experience and develop a deeper interest in the story he’s trying to tell.
Manipulator is a 17-track double album that delivers on loyal fans’ expectations while garnering attention from new listeners. Segall utilizes his multi-instrumental talent in incredibly effective ways to remind us why we love rock music. Originally from the San Francisco Bay are, the recent LA transplant draws inspiration from classic rock while maintaining his signature innovation.
Segall spent more time on this album, both in writing and production, than he typically would, and his efforts did not go unnoticed. If you’re searching for a new album to pull you back to rock/punk nostalgia, look no further. Do yourself a favor and give Manipulator a listen.
