The Daily Choice: Thee Oh Sees – Dead Energy
I’ve heard rumors that the new Thee Oh Sees album will be thrashing, pummeling bit of madness more in the vein of Help then their recent Captain Beefheart-excursion Castlemania. If this almost brand new split with Aussies Total Control is any indication we are in for a thrashing treat. Let’s not make any statements that place Thee Oh Sees in to a chamber of stagnation, the tracks off this beautiful 12″ split combine the almost theatrical qualities of Castlemania but inject the microphone-eating, shirt-tearing John Dwyer we’ve come to expect over the years. ”Dead Energy” the opening track of Thee Oh Sees half of the album is a jacked bit of surf-rock-cum-thrash and you can almost see Dwyer’s lippy sneer extended across it.
Thee Oh Sees/Total Control split is out now on Castleface.
These massively talented bands are both embarking on a sizable tour together where you can purchase this amazing split 12″ and get a sonic wedgie for the same price.
