“Freedom’s Goblin” DRAG CITY
Available now. “Freedom’s Goblin” is the new TY SEGALL album: 19 tracks strong, filling four sides of vinyl nonstop, with an unrestricted sense of coming together to make an album. It wants you to get your head straight - but first, the process will make your head spin! Back in the “Twins” days, we talked about the schizophrenia of Ty’s outlook; today, it’s super-dual, with loads of realities all folding back on each other. On any given side, we’re tracking five or six fullblown personalities, unconcerned with convention or continuity. “Freedom’s Goblin” is thick with deep songwriting resources, be it stomper, weeper, ballad, screamer, banger or funkerupper, all diverted into new TYdentities - each one marking a different impasse, like a flag whirling into a knot, exploding and burning on contact, in the name of love and loathing.
