Thee Oh Sees : Floating Coffin

You’d think the law of averages would dictate that any band releasing (at least) an album per year would soon start showing diminishing returns in terms of quality of output, right? Tell me, then, how it’s possible that San Francisco garage rockers Thee Oh Sees keep going from strength to strength, with latest LP Floating Coffin – their seventh studio record in six years (and twelfth in a decade if you count earlier incarnations such as OCS), out April 16 via frontman John Dwyer’s Castle Face label – as solid a representation of their psych-punk-beat pop hybrid sound as, for example, 2010’s Warm Slime or last year’s Putrifiers II? As long as they keep coming thick and fast, perhaps it’s best not to ask… Listen to “Toe Cutter/ Thumb Buster” below.

About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
