Ty Segall Has a Sonic Freakout With ‘Feel’ on ‘Conan’
Garage-rock king's seventh solo album, 'Manipulator,' due out August 26
On record, Ty Segall’s “Feel” is a ’60s-influenced lo-fi fuzz ditty, but live, it’s a whole other, much angrier animal. Donning a bit of makeup, the ever-prolific garage-rock artist took to Conan last night to perform the Manipulator track and seemingly tripled down on the guitar bombast, writhing and shaking through a feedback solo. There’s a little percussion breakdown thrown in for good measure before Segall and his band return to the screaming and howling to end one of the most energetic late-night TV performances in recent memory. Manipulator, the former SPIN cover star’s seventh solo LP, is due out August 26 via Drag City.
