Not long ago, Ty Segall released a truly great album, a dizzily fuzzed-up glam-slam called Manipulator. The fluttering, crashing “The Singer” is one of the closest things to a ballad on the album, and Segall just made a video for the song with director Matt Yoka. The clip starts out as a static camera shot of Segall playing in a messy apartment. It never really changes from that basic concept, but supernatural ideas start to show up: Ghost bandmates, levitation, a guitar that shoots neon energy-waves. It’s a fun video, and you can watch it below.
Manipulator is out now on Drag City.
