v i r g o v a n d a l May 14th, 2015: After a few Hall Brewing Red Ale’s I nearly sliced my middle finger off my right hand. I was looking into the bone at Hilltop Apts just before it started to shoot and spatter blood all over the apartment. When the paramedics arrived they were surprised that I was conscious after the heavy blood loss. I remember looking up at the TV’s youtube app playing this full album. 1st time I realized how fragile we really are. I then ordered the original blood red splatter vinyl.
Favorite track: Toe Cutter - Thumb Buster.

Chris Jacob The fuzzed-out madness you'd expect from John Dwyer is all over this thing, and it's rock solid. Favorite track: I Come From The Mountain.

Tunnel Time 04:10
HAVE A LOOK UNDER DISHES AND BEHIND THE TV I’LL BE FLIPPING YOUR LIGHT OUT AND ALL THE SPACE IN BETWEEN CAN’T REMEMBER THE FACES, OR EVEN THE NAMES I’VE BEEN CLEANING UP BODIES THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME, TO ME I’VE BEEN FILLING THE TUNNELS WITH MY LANTERN AT NIGHT SLOWLY SCRATCHING THE NAMES OFF THE WALLS OF THE MIND, FOR GOOD

Minotaur 04:50
OIL SLICK IN MY DINNER IT MAKES ME SICK, IN THE AIR ANYHOW AND THE DREAM ON MY LIPS IS GETTING THINNER WITH EACH DAY I GET SICK AT MY WORK EVERYDAY THERE IS NO CURE BUT TO STAY AWAY, WITHOUT PAY AND THE HORNS UPON MY HEAD ARE GETTING THICKER WITH EACH DAY MEN GET SICK AT THEIR WORK EVERYDAY THEIR AIN’T NO CURE BUT TO STAY, STAY AWAY AND THEIR DREAMS, IN THEIR HEADS, CANNOT BE FOUND IN THE MAZE OR SO THEY SAY

Osees Los Angeles, California

Psych-punk psychic warrior, ear worm-farmer, and possessor of many stamped passport pages John Dwyer does not let up. His group Oh Sees (aka Thee Oh Sees, OCS, The Oh Sees, etc) have transmogrified to fit many a moment - from hushed druggy folk to groovy demonic pop chants to science fictional krautrock expanse and beyond - to suit his omnivorous whims. ... more
