Default Ty Segall

Pretty prolific solo artist from my hometown who has made quite a name for himself in his 10ish years recording music. He's all over the place, from artsy post-punk, fuzzy noise rock, garage, surf, and most recently acoustic folk. He's got a couple side projects, too. Here are some videos:

Agreed. He's a really awesome drummer too. Recently found out he does drums and vocals for Fuzz, a sorta doomy/stoner/psych rock three piece. I'm surprised to see so few responses... seems everyone that frequents the indie/alt section of this forum are more into the stuff that actually gets publicized. They don't know what they're missin.

VHS tape?

I thought all the pretentious retro indie types were into cassettes.

Quote:
Here's the statement that accompanied the video on a crumpled-up sheet of paper:

What is emotional mugging?

Emotional mugging is a psychoanalytic subject to subject exchange formed as a response to our hyper-digital sexual landscape.

The over communication relayed in cell based technology and content driven media further detaches passengers of our modern society from deep emotional understanding. These detached residents seek meaning and physical contact which is readily available via traditional social standards often displaced thru the lens of the modern id. These individuals turn to salutation based sexual exchange and solo vice in return for a confirmation of non-emotion. This state of being that is well considered normal in our modern society is riddled with denial depravity and causes destruction on both the internal and external levels.

EM is an unfortunate but tragically essential practice in the age of digital intimacy. Essentially “mugging” is non verbal and non-physical emotional exchange, regardless of the status of the mugger and the muggee. Mugging can help to fill the holes in our ego, and the gaps in our society.

Unlike traditional mugging EM is a victimful crime wherein both the perpetrator and subject are victims of their emotional purpose whether the ego intention is subversive or provocative.
Sexual response has been common for both roles and have often led to meaningful non physical sexual relations.

Listening to the new(er?) album. I have no idea how this guy is lauded so much and Muse isn't. For the record I don't like either but it's the same ****ing band.

From the tracks posted here, he sounds like the most Californian man alive: an indie slacker with a taste for psychedelia, a significantly less talented Ariel Pink, a dollar-store Beck, that kind of thing.

Goodbye Bread is a nice track though.

I thought this was some kind of Steven Segal appreciation thread. Man, I was way off.

I came here because I thought it was weird to see you post about contemporary music. I too was way off...
