The prolific garage-noise-rocker Ty Segall just released his brand new “Fanny Dog” single via Aagoo Records.
A psychedelic ode to his dog, available on standard 7” and picture disc editions, each side of the picture disc features a yellow dog face painted by Segall, from his acrylic painting ‘Goopy Poodle’.
Stare at it long enough and you’ll find it’s oddly comforting!
This release is for a good canine cause: all proceeds will go to the animal rescue organizations NKLA and Mighty Mutts, which are dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating the strays of Los Angeles and New York.
Ever prolific, Segall released three albums last year–Fadge Sandwich, Freedom’s Goblin, and Orange Rainbow–that all rock with their own unique fuzzy melodies. On this release not only does Segall’s single feature various cover and insert art painted by Segall himself, but also the track comes in three different forms: the demo, a revved-up “sketch” and a live recording from San Diego, California. The single was recorded with Boo Mitchell in Memphis at Royal Studios and the chooglin’ groove, dancing barrelhouse piano and fat horns on this version send an especially warm, soulful vibration out to the listener.
So, give Fanny Dog a walk- she’ll love you for it!
Keep Up With Ty Segall
