Cock your ears! The sound of the Emotional Mugger is beaming down to you. If you need connection, get it! NPR is streaming Ty Segall's newest RIGHT freakin' NOW.

A delirious, deranged and SKETCHED OUT east-west ride through LA's mirror-laden city of night, Emotional Mugger is the first new Ty Segall album since summer 2014, almost two years man! Tumbling nice, with bite-size bangers in funk 'n' smut jam sandwiches. Emotional Mugger gots Ty exploring a new palette of exploding studio fry-jinks. With ten new songs and something we're not able to categorize, Emotional Mugger is visceral, incisive and even FUN (WHAT)!

This is what we've been trying to tell you from the start, but it's just so GNAR getting across. Why do they make it so hard? We sent promos; how were we to know nobody had the format anymore? Then a website dedicated to your understanding:, with an Emotional Mugger Hotline (#1-800-281-2968), available 24-7, as well as regular updates from practice, and, just this week, an in-depth look at the Baby Big Men hitting the road with Ty. It pays to know your frenemies! What more can we give you? We're full up; emotional mugging oozing from every our crevice - take some and smear it on you! And now, you can stream the music and see for yourself; even in watered-down digital form, there's something OBSCENE going on here. Are you fer it, or agin' it?

Ty and the Muggers slipped into west coast tour mode on Wednesday and will soon spread across the rest of the North Americagarchy starting in mid-Feb, dates below. Additionally, there will be a very Emotional Mugger listening party in NYC on January 18th at Wild Kingdom (97 S. 6th Street, Brooklyn). Food by Superiority Burger (FREE), with loadz-o-booze and sets by DJ Top Dollar and The Emotional Desperados doing Emotional Mugger in can't ask for anything more! Well, you could, but didn't you just resolve to not be so much of a dick this year? Get yourself together - get Mugged!
