Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the California-based Alt-Rock outfit led by John Dwyer. What's the first thing you think of when someone mentions Thee Oh Sees? Probably their riot-sparking live show, right? Visions of a guitar-chewing, melody-maiming Dwyer careening across your cranium, rounded out by a wild-eyed wrecking crew that drives every last hook home like it's a nail in the coffin of what you thought it meant to make 21st-century Rock 'n' Roll? Yeah, that sounds about right. But it misses a more important point: how impossible Thee Oh Sees have been to pin down since Dwyer launched the project in the late '90s. That restlessness extends to everything from the towering, thirteen-minute title track of 2010's Warm Slime LP to the mercurial moods of 2008's The Master's Bedroom Is Worth Spending a Night In.

A brilliant, driving, sprawling dream. A great place to start with Thee Oh Sees music. I listened to this while walking around various San Francisco neighborhoods at night and it made the perfect soundtrack.

"Carrion Crawler/The Dream" is the second release from Dwyer and co in 2011,
and this time they really tap into a string of ferociously infectious songs.
It's the garage rock freak-out album of the year and it comes packed with
murky grooves. "Crack In Your Eye", "Contraption/Soul Desert", "The Dream"
and "Carrier Crawler" are all fueled-up, fantastic burners.
The addition of a second drummer gives a rock solid foundation for Dwyer to
scratch away at his strings and grind out some fat, dirty riffs, with Petey
Dammit and Brigid Dawson filling the gaps. A fine cacophonous mess!

Thee Oh Sees rock! 1ST heard them on KEXP where someone requested it for their loved one. This band made me buy a turntable, just to listen to
it on vinyl.

I'm listening to this over and over! As if early, early Pink Floyd somehow merged with modern rockin' bluesy garage rock...Voila, Thee Oh Sees Carrion Crawler/The Dream

My two favorite things about this band are their raw non-self conscious energy and their attention to detail in their wall of sound. This album was played live and you can tell - it's got all the grit and in-your-face energy of a live concert, and their sounds are at once 50s science-fiction spacey, 60s psychedelic/pop, 70s punk riot Ramones, 80s Talking Heads/DEVO, with a huge dose of old-fashioned rock and roll. I went around reading reviews about them and descriptions like "jagged psych-punk" and "unruly fuzzed-out freak rock" resonated (distortion abounds!). But my absolute favorite (from the Austin Chronicle?) was "Dwyer's guitar playing is best described in terms usually reserved for feral cats." (Yes it is!) I loved the use of sax on the first tune, and I love how there are no divas - the band instruments and voices are equally weighted in focus, yet you can hear everyone clearly - nice production job for a wall of sound. And the band is very tight - they read each other like music psychics.

I so liked this band that, when walking around a great local vinyl shop (Sweat Records in Miami) I bought the vinyl (I had only downloaded the mp3.) Needless to say, the sound on the vinyl was even better. Definitely recommend getting it and/or seeing them live if you can.
