MP3: Ty Segall and White Fence

On albums like House Arrest and especially his breakthrough LP, Before Today, avant-garde pop artist Ariel Pink made a career out of filtering the sounds of classic pop and acid rock through all of the hisses and squeals and lo-fi dirtiness of the logical culmination of the term "bedroom" pop. It was often this same cassette-driven fidelity (or lack thereof) that often led to young hipsters convincing their parents that they had found some long lost vinyl b-side from the 60s. On their track "I Am Not a Game," Ty Segall and White Fence have collaborated to creat the garage rock answer to Ariel Pink.

MP3: "I Am Not a Game"


The duo are making a collaborative album together, Hair, and "I Am Not a Game" is the first bit of music to arise, and color us impressed. I've played it over half a dozen times since I first heard it earlier today, and had you told me this was some missing track from an Iggy Pop, Velvet Underground, and Yardbirds pairing, I would have believed you. The guitar solos are excellent and manic, the hooks dig in like barbed wire, and the dirty lo-finess of it gives it a rough-edged authenticity. To quote everyone's favorite British orphan (whose name isn't Harry Potter anyways), "Please sir... can we have some more?"
