FYF Fest: One Day, One Artist
When Ty Segall gets on stage, it’s a treat for those who’ve missed the all-out chaos and unpredictability of rock and roll. Living in Laguna Beach, San Francisco and now residing in Los Angeles, Segall has inhaled influences from all around to bring his listeners pure garage rock you can let loose (and scream) to. Not only will he be playing FYF Fest on the 23rd, but he’ll also be playing the Echo for four nights of jam-packed shows from August 28-31, all in promotion of his new album Manipulator to be released on the 26th. Get a taste of what he’ll be bringing to FYF by watching last night’s performance on Conan.

Australian electronic producer Chet Faker has taken the world by storm with his soulful and entrancing beats (watch his cover of “No Diggity” for a refresher). So much, in fact, that he just made Hypemachine’s Music Blog Zeitgeist making him one of the most blogged about artists of 2014 so far. Just yesterday the video for “Gold” was released from his new album Built on Glass. The Australian producer, whose real name is Nick Murphy, told Londonist “Gold” is actually the oldest song on the album, written two years ago. But after watching the new video filled with badass rollerskating chicks strutting their stuff on dark paved roads, the track is fresher than ever:

We were blown away by Angel Olsen back in April for SXSW 2014, so when we heard she would be playing FYF this year, we had a feeling LA would want a piece of her. And with good reason: this year alone she’s signed to a major label, already placing on websites’ top albums of 2014 lists with her release of Burn Your Fire For No Witness, made the move from Chicago to North Carolina, and has been non-stop touring. With the new move, the pressure to write and “be unique” has been lifted and Olsen tells Paste Magazine: 

"I really enjoy and appreciate a place that isn’t about moving constantly and isn’t about trying to be distracted with these things on a daily basis…I don’t have to write if I don’t want to write. Part of my writing is living well." 

But before she settles down she has a few festivals to shred for, including FYF, so don’t miss out!

Ethiopian songstress and Los Angeles resident Kelela effortlessly brings nostalgic R&B to a the current digital age, blending strong vocals with electronic flare. Her debut mixtape Cut 4 Me she released last year has received nothing but good press and her live appearances easily match the quality of her recordings. While she’s currently dominating the festival circuit, she’s absolutely ready to kill it in her hometown at FYF Fest on August 24th.

Donning his famous shades, Omar Souleyman commanded the stage and got everyone in the space moving with his electronic twist on traditional Middle Eastern music. Although his demeanor is more on the quiet side, his unique upbeat set fit perfectly with the lineup and you can’t help but want to hear more.

Opening our first House Party of the month last night was Mas Ysa, the project of Canadian composer and visual artist Thomas Arsenault. Arsenault fuses elements of pop, techno, and a range of recordings to create heavy, thought-provoking tracks and had no problem captivating our audience last night.
