Ty Segall's three, count 'em, three albums last year are nothing if not physical, taking unabashed relish in garage rock's sonic raunch. His new video for "Thank God for Sinners," off of Twins, piles hands and feet up hand over foot. Segall lips-syncs his lyrics covered in warlike face paint, giving us a peeper-full of his chompers, as body parts surround him: Love those love handles.

The song, meanwhile, slyly thanks the Almighty for the people He's supposed to damn to hell, with slashing acid-rock heaviness we're shocked to see no one else has compared to Cream's "White Room." Thank past Segall collaborator Matt Yoka for the video; thank Ty for the tunes — and the tour, which kicks off on Friday. But with this clip, you'll have already seen him in the flesh.
