Ty Segall is released his new album, Emotional Mugger, a couple of weeks back via Drag City. Now he has shared a 14-minute short film/long form music video that features remixed versions of various tracks from the album. In it Segall wanders around Los Angeles and encounters police brutality, among other things. Watch it below, followed by Segall’s tour dates.

Matt Yoda directed the film and spoke to Indiewire about it: “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.”
