Oh Sees, ‘Face Stabber’

This new release from John Dwyer and co. does what it says on the tin. Pushing their brand of alt-psych-garage-rock to extremes is what the Oh Sees (or Thee Oh Sees, or The Oh Sees, or The Ohsees…) do best: it’s more face stabbing than face-melting. Yet, despite the threat of something sinister lurking just under the surface, the record never boils over into uncontrollable excess. Riding on a wave of molten riffs and driven by searing drums, Dwyer’s artistic vision oozes throughout this 80 minute sonic rampage. Well worth a listen.
