Would You Be My Love/ For Those Who Weep
7" Vinyl Single Record
"Would You Be My Love" is the second single from TY SEGALL's titanic t'ird album of twot'ousand-twelve, Twins. It's a candy-coated "American Bandstand" type moment that is sure to guarantee lots of twisting in the more germane parts of the pit at an average show on a regular night when Ty burns your freakin' town down. The song never quits, bouncing along at a medium high degree of tempo that is only enhanced by revolving at 45 rpm. Sure, it's good fun-but it wouldn't be right not to note the depths of longing, loneliness and melancholy underneath the gleaming waves of the song. The flipside of the record, "For Those Who Weep," is a non-LP moment dressing an old familiar scrap of melody in a messianic tunic, as Ty recalls being compelled from beyond himself to "make sounds" and participate in the spirit-world of music, which is "collectively free," uniting the people together. Low-fi producti-crunch gives the waltzing acoustic guitars a sweet Stonesy edge, freeing this simple song to sing intimately, yet anthemically inside our collective head.
