New Ty Segall video: Taste

Video: Ty Segall -- “Taste”

Ty Segall "Taste" (Official Music Video)

Directed by Joshua Erkman. From First Taste, due August 2 on Drag City.

Ty Segall wants your shit and he is willing to murder you for it. We live in a sick society and are being programmed on a daily basis to feed our sickness. Never one for subtlety, Ty Segall goes on a real-life, one-man Grand Theft Auto joyride of destruction to accumulate as much bling as he can so he can take home the big prize. “What’s the big prize,” you say? More shit.

He can’t help it, we can’t help it. We’ve literally elected a golden calf to lead our country with game-show rules. Virtual-reality is higher definition than reality-reality. We’re starving while drowning in bits and bites.

UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, B, A, START.

New C.I.A. video: Oblivion

Video: The C.I.A. -- “Oblivion”

The C.I.A. - Oblivion

From The C.I.A., due December 21 on In the Red.

Their previous single focused on carnal comfort as a balm for existential crisis, while this new one suggests the pointlessness of getting wasted. Fair enough, but hey, whatever gets you through the night.

Every night the same routine
Going out just to be seen

The C.I.A. is Denée Segall on vocals, her husband Ty on bass, Emmett Kelly on another bass, and R.E. Carlos on drums. No guitar. And no nonsense. These guys aren’t messing around.

New Denée & Ty Segall video: Pleasure Seeker

Video: The C.I.A. -- “Pleasure Seeker”

The C.I.A. - Pleasure Seeker

Directed by Denée & Ty Segall. From their self titled debut, due in December on In The Red.

Who needs guitars when you have two basses? Not the C.I.A., a new group featuring Ty Segall on one bass, his wife Denée on vocals, Emmett Kelly on another bass, and R.E. Carlos on drums.

Nothing much left in this world to live for
I think I know how we could waste some time…

Denée writes, “In a world filled with so much anger and chaos we must find a way to escape, at least every once and a while, to an alternate reality where only pleasure exists. This realm is different for everyone and can be conjured in many ways. It can be found by walking the dog, indulging in a decadent meal with friends, or stepping out into the void and sitting in silence under the moon. I endorse and participate in all of these methods. However, there is one technique that soars above the rest. Pleasure Seeker speaks of the ultimate release. The one which is absolutely essential to life itself. Love -- in any and all of the forms it inhabits. Tender or eccentric, self or shared. Each one of us seeks a pure kind of intimacy. Carnal comfort binds us all. Seek, and you shall find.”

Right on.
