“Free­dom’s Goblin” DRAG CITY

Exclaim! - - NEWS -

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.
