This Week in Posivibes: Emotional Mugger


Ty Segall and The Muggers performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert the other night, playing the song “Candy Sam” off the album Emotional Mugger released this January on Drag City. Playing with Mikal Cronin, King Tuff, Charles Moothart, and members of WANDS, this new project marks a shift in Segall’s sound.

The album was originally shared with writers in the form of mailed VHS tapes along with the following definition of emotional mugging:

The over-communication relayed in cell based technology and content driven media further detaches passengers of our modern society from deep emotional understanding.

Watch the performance after the jump.
