Ty Segall has shared a new compilation-style video from his recent album Emotional Mugger.
Set in a dystopian L.A., Segall walks the streets witnessing the world around him descend into chaos. As he watches police brutality carried out and prostitutes roam around, his face begins to literally decay from the madness. The 14-minute long video uses a mix of songs from his latest record, remixed by producer F. Bermudez.
The director, Matt Yoka had this to say about the video via Indiewire:
“The Mugger video is a reflection on Los Angeles (and in general, urban plight and anxiety). Ty and I are big fans of practical/in-camera gore and effects, so this was an opportunity to experiment with those traditions. It’s just important for me to use those effects as commentary (in the vein of Terry Gilliam and David Cronenberg). One thing I think is cool about the video, is that Ty and (the album’s producer) F. Bermudez remixed the album specifically for the video… unlike most music videos, when you watch Emotional Mugger you are getting to hear different versions/interpretations of the music—so watching this video is not really about hearing music from the album as it’s getting another experience from the Emotional Mugger dimension.”
