Uncut Mag Gives Ty Segall “New Artist Of The Year”

We’re not exactly certain how you can give a 25-year old with at least ten albums under his belt (both solo albums and as a member of The Traditional Fools, Epsilons, Party Fowl, the Perverts, among others).  But heck, if you want to recognize what he accomplished in 2012 — three amazing albums, two of which, as you will see below, tying for 2nd place in the Tulip Frenzy Top Ten List ™ — that’s not a meaningless accolade.  Even though of course they should drop the “New” and just call him “Artist of the Year.”

But in the write-up, the following few sentences simply made us sigh: “Segall was born in 1987 in Laguna Beach, down the coast from LA.  He was seven when Kurt Cobain died.  He still remembers playing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” on his first boom box.”

Okay, we’ll do what Uncut shoulda: we pronounce Ty Segall Tulip Frenzy’s Artist of the Year.
