Dirty Shoes takes a look at the sort of Ty Segall & Co's super group, GØGGS.
Will Schube is the rhyme regulator/mic manipulator My favorite artists tend to be those whom have a deep and intense respect for the technical aspects of their crafts: the filmmakers who can give every sort of detail about their favorite childhood films or the musicians who can rattle off the list of snare drums used […]
Duncan Boyd once beat a man insensible with a strawberry. It’s been roughly eight months, which means it’s time for another Ty Segall album.
