Out in Topanga, way down in the canyon,
They've got their own way of getting high. It's called music,
And at Ty Segall's Harmonizer Studios, it's happening day-in and day-out.
It's been a year and a half since the doors blew open, and all sorts of records have been cut and some released since then - but now, with the studio's tender maiden recordings, a sun-baked collection of acoustically-rooted gems called "Hello, Hi" seeing the first light of day, it's a special, celebratory moment - resetting the reset, adjusting the lens of the present with some catalytic materials of recent vintage. In other words, it's time to cop a blend! Because, as Ty himself told Uncut about making the record, "It just felt right to pick up the acoustic again, drink some coffee, and just get there." And therein lies the other half of the high - music plus coffee, playing in your mind. Nothing unnatural there, right?
And so Ty, in partnership with the highly-aligned palates in the Dark Matter Coffee Laboratory, is proud to put his brand on this blend of Central American coffees, each one roasted and or toasted to provide an essential coffee drinking experience - balancing chocolate and citrus with sunlight, glinting off the sand and the saltwater pools.
About Ty Segall
Where do we even start with this guy? Ty has been releasing music since 2008 both as a solo musician and in a plethora of bands and has firmly cemented himself at the forefront of the current garage music boom. With over a dozen albums under his own name, 3 more as a part of Fuzz, a couple of Levitation live sessions as the Ty Segall Band, and a couple of collaboration records with White Denim, the sheer body of work he's managed to release is impressively staggering. And if you think that's intimidating, know it's only a fraction of what he's put out. Do yourself a favor and check out a few tracks from across his career below, just prepare to have your face melted beyond repair.
About the Blend
We wanted to create an easy-drinking coffee, to reflect on the take-it-easy approach Ty applies to his music. So, we got to work, blending together two Guatemalan coffee beans with sweet, fudgy profiles. First to hit the blend was a washed Catuai (a cross between highly productive Mundo Novo and compact Caturra), making up the base. Next up is a washed processed Sarchimor (otherwise known as T5296), bringing in brighter, citrusy notes, perfect for that front-porch jam session. Both coffees from this blend (Sarchimor variety and Catuai variety) have gone through washed processing, a wet process where outer skin and mucilage are removed from the coffee seed, and then patio dried.
