    #3 Putrifiers II opens with a lonely sitar-ish guitar line, finishes with droning strings, and cuts a wide, all over the place, swath of psychedelic garage rock in the 40 or so minutes in between...full article here

    Slant Best of 2013 on Thee Oh Sees

    #25 In most cases, it would be difficult to pinpoint a quintessential album from a band that churns out so many good ones, but Putrifiers II manages to crystallize much of what makes John Dwyer and company tick: hazy, West Coast-style garage-rock that has a charming pugnaciousness running through its SoCal vibe...full article here

    Thee Oh Sees Dog Poison [Captured Tracks]

    One thing that originally lured me into Thee Oh Sees’ garage rock party was the inherent rock & roll mojo between lead vocalist John Dwyer and keyboardist/background vocalist, Brigid Dawson. By joining forces, they made garage rock just sound sexier (if that’s possible).

    On Dog Poison, Dawson’s presence is muddled, rendering the songs more hidden, drugged, and distracted by effects and distortion than their previous two efforts—both within the last 12 months. However, Thee Oh Sees still spin an eccentric blend of psychedelic rock revivalism that never sounds gimmicky or pretentious, and the album has moments of noise-pop brilliance, including “I Can’t Pay You To Disappear” and “The FIZZ.”

    Ultimately, the album takes few more listens to grasp, and you’ll feel the absence of Dawson’s background swoons, but Dog Poison marks a respectable transition for the group.

    Thee Oh Sees Castlemania [In The Red]

    San Francisco darlings, Thee Oh Sees, have dropped a whopping 16-track album, Castlemania, off of label, In The Red. They’re still kooky, with a sound like LSD-laced campfire songs for the kiddies. Many songs are Syd Barret musical cryptograms, but if you’re able to decipher the hidden messages within multi-layered walls of sound then you could be in for a serious treat.

    Psychedelic? Oh yeah. Experimental punk? You betchya. Eclectic as fuck? Well, that too. There are howls, laser guns firing, car horns, and a good amount of disjointed ambience. In “The Horse Was Lost” there is also a full minute of silence… in the middle of the album. “Corprophagist (A Bath Perhaps)” is a bell-tolling, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah chorused tune while “AA Warm Breeze” breaks out the tambourine, harmonica and nearly monotone lyrics.

    Yet despite all of this strangeness Thee Oh Sees have put forth a truly tasty biscuit of a new release, as long as you’re into biscuits covered in something crazy like pixie sticks and Cap’n Crunch.

    #33 Thee Oh Sees tend to release one or two records a year, which makes the San Francisco psych-noise-garage hybrid's success rate all the more improbable. Ex-Coachwhips singer-guitarist John Dwyer keeps his band running like a '57 Chevy hooked up to a morphine drip — a superb distillation of its city's true identity as the home of groovy vibes that are actually more cranked-up than blissed-out. On this seventh album, they drone like the Velvet Underground ... more here

    Thee Oh Sees: "Flood's New Light"

    Fourteen albums into their discography, each new Thee Oh Sees album is somewhat unpredictable. Sometimes a new LP means acid-baked vocals and weirdo psych rock ( Castlemania ). Maybe it means quiet ballads ( Thee Hounds of Foggy Notion ) or driving krautrock ( Carrion Crawler/The Dream ). And while there are familiar elements in play with "Flood's New Light", off Putrifiers II -- most....[from  Putrifiers II ; out 09/11/12 via In the Red ]

    Amoeba "Music We Like" on Thee Oh Sees

    over 1 year ago

    Thee Oh Sees, Putrifiers II (CD) S.F. psych-rockers Thee Oh Sees’ cult seemed to overflow with two great albums released last year, the scuzzy lo-fi pop of Castlemania and its more acid-tinged follow-up, Carrion Crawler/The Dream. Putrifiers II works off that momentum and delivers on its promise, scaling back the noise of their more rambunctious moments to offer hypnotic, low-key psych-pop. “Wax Face” features some of Thee Oh Sees main man John Dwyer’s idiosyncrasies, with wacked out harmonic guitarwork and echoing, screechy vocals, but with that familiarity out of the way, the album’s next two songs feel new for Dwyer, as “Hang a Picture” is nostalgic, even sweet jangly pop, and “So Nice” takes a Velvets-inspired trip through stately drone. “Flood’s New Light” sounds like...more at amoeba.com
