Ty Segall is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter from California. His musical style consists of blending genres such as garage and psychedelic rock. Emotional Mugger is his eighth studio album.

The music on Emotional Mugger comes across sounding loose and clunky, with very little creative resemblance to 2014's Manipulator. There are no real surprises here; this is an album with your usual loud, stoner-garage rock fare but without any energy or emotion. The songs feel rushed, diluted and relentlessly stodgy. Despite it's overall positive critical reception, I found Emotional Mugger to be one of the most disappointing releases of his prolific career.
