Ty Segall Announces ‘Emotional Mugger’ LP

The prolific songwriter will return January 22 with a new studio record on Drag City

The tireless Ty Segall’s spent most of 2015 touring hard and playing in other bands, but today he’s officially announced his next studio record. As speculated by a few publications who received copies of an album dubbed onto VHS tapes earlier this week, the new full-length is called Emotional Mugger. It’s 11 tracks long and will be out January 22 on Drag City, according to a press release. There’s little more info available at this point, considering that the rest of the press release takes the form of absurdist poetry.

Get in the booth -

punch in the number

when they pick up

don’t say a word

just listen

shout at the double

from the damned from

a dry throat

dry eye chuckle

insistent / elastic (but never plastic)

thick / butt jump pierced by

the kids

sweet angel voice sinister

(what are they thinking)

guitars sliced with scribble

graffiti sprawled across the hemispheres; stuttered, stunted, dual-mono machine dreams flashing sudden stereophobic and back again / two screens alone together

squeezing shaking oozing metallic pool like brain blood,

slowly draining away all mental life.

shaking ass / nihility at most corrodes

candy’s gone no more

fun
