kat Perfect soundtrack for rolling around town in your painted van. (but seriously) the variety & energy on this album is unreal. Can't recommend enough. Favorite track: Anthemic Aggressor.

Fernando Benítez I love this band, and live they're quite amazing. now, is this their heavy metal record? shades of deep purple Mk II-era, a bit of vanilla fudge jamming, and yes, i do hear the mahavishnu orchestra licks here and there, indeed. the cool thing, though, is that it all gets filtered thru their Can and hardpunk influences. so this is a groovy noisefest from star to finish. i mean, listen to Dwyer's guitar tone! they should record something with damo suzuki, btw. 10/10.

about

Crack the coffers, Oh Sees have spawned another frothy LP of head-destroying psych epics to grok and rock out to. You’ll notice the fresh dollop of organ and keyboard prowess courtesy of "Memory of a Cut Off Head” alum and noted key-stabber Tom Dolas...the Quattrone/Rincon drum-corps polyrhythmic pulse continues to astound and pound in equal measure, buttressed by the nimble fingered bottom end of Sir Tim Hellman the Brave and the shred-heaven fret frying of John Dwyer, whilst Lady Brigid Dawson again graces the wax with her harmonic gifts. Aside from the familiar psych-scorch familiar to soggy pit denizens the world over, there’s a fresh heavy-prog vibe that fits like a worn-in jean jacket comfortably among hairpin metal turns and the familiar but no less horns-worthy guitar fireworks Dwyer’s made his calling card. Perhaps the most notable thing about Smote Reverser is the artistic restlessness underpinning its flights of fancy. Dwyer refuses to repeat himself and for someone with such a hectic release schedule, that stretching of aesthetic borders and omnivorous appetite seems all the more superhuman. Hope you’re hungry as these platters are piled high

about

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
