*[consequenceofsound.net] San Francisco rocker Ty Segall and co-director Peter Grimm make terrifying use of some editing effects and animal costumes in the “The Hill”. The VHS-style mishmash sees Segall and his band dress up as an eagle, a bear, and a dog and jam out like evil versions of The Banana Splits while a demonic Muppet monster and a ghost-faced girl creep around. Thankfully, the cause of this psychedelic horror show’s explained retroactively with the dog character’s John Belushi-sized bong hit at the end. But even that won’t prevent viewers from developing a fear of Plushies or puppets when they click play below.
Segall’s third album of 2012, Twins, hits stores on October 9th via Drag City.
