Published Feb 01, 2012Ty Segall and Tim Presley (of White Fence/Darker My Love renown) both have a penchant for grimy, lo-fi pop rock, so it's only fitting that the two prolific California songwriters have teamed up for a collaborative album. Entitled Hair, it's slated to arrive in late April via Drag City.
UPDATE: Hair is due out April 24. All Segall and White Fence's joint dates can also be seen below.
Segall told Spin that he played drums and rhythm guitar on the collection, while Presley handled bass and lead guitar. He described Presley as a "total ripper," and said, "We'd like to bring the guitar solo back to rock'n'roll. It seems like it's been gone for a while."
The album, which will be credited to Ty Segall and White Fence, was recorded at San Francisco's Bauer Mansion basement studio. This is the same place where Segall cut last year's Goodbye Bread.
To promote Hair, Segall and Presley will team up for a collaborative tour, and you can see those dates below.
Of course, both musicians have plenty of their own work to support. White Fence just announced plans to release a two-part double album, while Segall is working on a new LP, which he described as "really fast and hard and aggressive."
Expect a VHS-recorded commercial for Hair to air on Adult Swim soon.
