VIDEO: TY SEGALL “EMOTIONAL MUGGER”

February 2nd, 2016

Carpenter's They Live, Burns' Black Hole and Cronenberg's Videodrome are the dead-eyed ancestors of this not-safe-for-1984 midnight-movie bad trip directed by Matt Yoka, in which a man who looks a lot like Ty Segall becomes—or is transformed into? or is revealed as?—the monster he has always been, or that we have all always been? Yes, there's music—a Funkadelic-style intro and variously dismembered aspects of tracks from Segall's punishing Emotional Mugger, currently still legal to purchase—and yes, there's video, but actually this is a miniature movie or more accurately a transmission from another universe just one degree past parallel.

February 1st, 2016

Lonesome winter water's-edge vibes from Matt Adams of the Blank Tapes in this video for the dreamy "Lover's Lane," filmed on snowy Rockaway Beach on Valentine's Day 2014 and directed and produced by Brandon Polanco. Adams starts a short solo West Coast tour tomorrow, Feb. 2, at Ham and Eggs Tavern downtown, and "Lover's Lane" comes from the recent Sha La Love, a "long lost" (says Adams) album released in October on L.A.'s formidable Dome of Doom label that also features Pearl Charles and Veronica Bianqui. (You'll remember Dome of Doom is also home to Linafornia and Nobody!) Tour dates and video credits below!
