Thee Oh Sees

One of the cornerstone bands of the post-millennium garage/psych resurgence, Thee Oh Sees represent a purposefully chaotic fusion of guitar and synth noise, strong and elemental melodies, and addled but focused attacks. Thee Oh Sees were founded by guitarist John Dwyer; originally from Providence, Rhode Island, after relocating to California in the late '90s, Dwyer became active on the San Francisco indie scene, working with several bands, including the Coachwhips, Pink & Brown, Yikes, Up Its Alive, and Swords & Sandals, among others. Dwyer formed OCS (which is an acronym for Orinoka Crash Suite, Orange County Sound, or whatever Dwyer decided it was on any given day) initially as a vehicle for the experimental instrumentals he was producing in his home studio. In time, OCS morphed into an actual band, and worked under the usual flurry of names, most notably as the Oh Sees or the Ohsees, and eventually as Thee Oh Sees, featuring Dwyer on guitar and vocals, Brigid Dawson on vocals and tambourine, Petey Dammit (sometimes listed as Petey Dammit!) on bass, and Mike Shoun on drums. Sounding a bit like the Mamas & the Papas run through a seriously bent garage blender, the band signed with the German Tomlab label and released Sucks Blood in 2007 and The Master's Bedroom Is Worth Spending a Night In in 2008. Thee Oh Sees' second full-length effort, Help, appeared in 2009 and featured a bit of a garage rock vibe mixed with the band's psych-pop sound. The album Warm Slime followed in 2010. Thee Oh Sees pulled double duty the following year, offering the pop-leaning Castlemania in June, followed in November by the heavier, wilder Carrion Crawler/The Dream, also the band's first recording with second drummer Lars Finberg (the Intelligence). Thee Oh Sees returned in September 2012 with Putrifiers II, an album combining Castlemania's fractured pop sensibilities and Carrion Crawler/the Dream's ferocious rock experimentation. Their next foray, 2013's Floating Coffin, saw the group stripping away all the weirdness and hitting hard with a heavy set of straight-ahead garage/punk rock tunes. With Dawson moving to Santa Cruz and Dwyer de-camping to L.A. later that year, it was rumored that the band were soon to split, especially after Dwyer told the crowd at a show in December 2013, "This will be the last Oh Sees show for a long while, so dig in." However, the announcement that Drop -- their 13th studio album proper -- was planned for release in April 2014 suggested that their respective relocations hadn't affected Thee Oh Sees' recording schedule. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

Will the oh sees ever play in the San Antonio area? It looks like all their shows are in CA and in places even further away from me! Why?!?
Will catch you soon
Really great band to catch live. Very high energy show and Dwyer really gives his guitar a workout.
The best of the clam jammin!
So wired and different. I like it.
My favourite band
@TRON I wish was you
It's rock n roll, not the reinvention of the wheel.
I feel like some current band ripped off the song Coconut. It sounds familiar, in any case. oh yeah, it's not that current. that song where the chorus is like hey hey hey like being stoned. same chords and sing until the end of the measure. of course, it's simple enough chord progression. maybe they were just on to the same thing.
@TRON I wouldn't be bragging about that if I were you.
spensoid
Nothing suckss about this music.
wrackunai: Hahahahaha love grammar!! tron: thats weird that you know that...
Mr. narrorator.? This is like Bob Dylan to me.
Don't you love jealous b**ches? You know why they had to get special bank accounts and you didn't? I suspect they make better music. Get over it.
Stop milking your Indie hipster status for every last drop of publicity. You sold out the minute you got a special type of BANK account a**holes.

love
hellojimdrai n
I wanna halve John Dwyer's baby.
If I made the perfect song it would sound like this band, Pixies, King Khan, Dandy Warhols and Jay Reatard combined. These guys really have a cool sound and a great pace.
fascinating musical aesthetic... v e r y analog and granular and dirt-like.
