Ty Segall “The Main Pretender”

Ty Segall’s new track “The Main Pretender” is a beautiful concoction of funk and rock. The track starts off with a fat drum fill into a wonky horn line. When the lead vocal enters you may hear familiar aspects. The filtered vocal, deep round synth bass, and fuzzy guitar almost sound as if you’re listening to The Black Keys. Once the chorus comes around it’s a completely different story. The vocal harmonies and the arrangement of the rhythm section almost sounds like it should be one of The Beatles hit songs. Segall is all about his songs being crazy and quirky and ending with out of control horns puts the icing on the cake.
