Listen to Ty Segall’s “Saturday Pt. 2”, New Single From “Hello, Hi”!


It’s such a perfect day to listen to some Ty Segall. “Saturday Pt.2” is awfully reminiscent of a 70’s era Lou Reed and Bowie jam. Check it out below.

The man in the tree with the guitar? He’s gonna sing! But the sun shining through the branches — are those rays yellow or hazy gray? When again are you not going to feel this way? Pulling at the scratchy wool threads of an old sweater, Ty Segall extracts melodic fibers to braid each strand anew. What emerges then weaves together chimes of freedom and rows of desolation – it lights up all of our senses (including the all-important equilibrium-centric 6th and 7th senses) with encompassing waves.

“Saturday Pt. 2” concludes a mini-suite that forms the penultimate movement of “Hello, Hi”. Fuzz-free guitars roll forth, ringing with consonance and humble purpose. Ty‘s reassuring murmur leads the way until Mikal Cronin’s elegant saxophone throws open the windows, losing joy, hysteria and all the other simple pains and pleasures that have sat behind closed doors for so long. It’s a slow-roiling escape-anthem, finally sighting what’s been missing and wished-upon for what seems like forever: the time we find to play, the magical expanse of Saturday. TGIS!
