There hasn’t been enough fanfare for the new Oh Sees album on this site. I blame myself.
Don’t fret though, this new video for the previously TDCed “Lupine Dominus” manages to perfectly capture the underlying sleaze of Putrifiers II. It’s like it’s giant cannon full of confetti signaling the arrival of another near perfect Oh Sees album.
Thee Oh Sees Putrifiers II is out now on In The Red.
I’ve gotten to a point with Thee Oh Sees where I make no assumptions about what their next album might sound like. I’m partial to the band’s more krautrock style – John Dwyer’s falsetto rising up and over the pummeling force of the guitar – but, as they’re like to do, Dwyer and his band of merry pranksters oft times veer away from the pummeling to dig in to something else, some sort of strange blend of their older quieter sound with a stew pot of flute and bizarreness. “Flood’s New Light”, the second single off the upcoming Putrifiers II album sounds, maybe, somewhere in the middle. There’s touches of a sort of fungal krautrock, overgrown and without the persistent rock, and Dwyer’s voice continues to lead the charge, but the strange noodling of Castlemania slips on the edges. Call it a combination of sound, or perhaps yet another new incarnation of the many-pronged machine that is Thee Oh Sees.
Putrifiers II is out September 11th on In The Red.
Anything new from Thee Oh Sees camp (which lucky for us is’t a rarity) is cause for rejoice around The Daily Choice parts. “Lupine Dominus” the first single off of the new album, Putrifiers II and it continues the band’s progression in to the world of persistent rhythm’s and psyched-out guitar solos. There’s a sinister edge to “Lupine Dominus” though as the song never breaks as so many other Oh See’s tracks do. Instead it lingers at a single, hushed volume, the vocals sinewy and seductive, the guitar the solos the songs psychedelic pulse.
Thee Oh Sees new album Putrifiers II will be out on 9/11 via In The Red.
