¤   Emerging from the distant light we have a new double LP from our own John Dwyer’s Thee Oh Sees. The first studio recordings to capture the muscular rhythm section of double drummers Ryan Moutinho and Dan Rincon with ringer bassist Tim Hellman cracking spines, the groove and bludgeon we’ve come to expect from the live shows is captured seamlessly here — they go from zero to head~splitter from the get~go and on the rare occasions they do let up on the gas a bit, we’re treated to some locked~in hypnotizers, too. The guitar sounds more colossal and ethereal at the same time, riding roughshod over the vacuum sealed rhythm section, spiraling skywards, and diving into the emerald depths so quick your guts tingle. Synths, strings and smoke soaked things crawl behind the scenes to make an extra far~out party platter. Served on 45 rpm plates for most excellent listening quality. With amazing visuals and a side D etching by air~brush~van~art maestro Robert Beatty…and packed in vape~proof goat skin. It’s a beast and it can be yours should you choose come August 12th.....come on now.
by Stuart Berman, AUGUST 12 2016 / Score: 7.5
¤   As Thee Oh Sees are wont to do, they close A Weird Exits with a slow dance — though it’s the rare one in their canon to push the VU meter to the same extremes as their high~octane ragers. With its mournful, church~organ melody, “The Axis” initially waltzes in like a dirtbag “Whiter Shade of Pale,” the romantic yearning replaced by scathing anti~sentiment (“Don’t you know how much / I don’t love you”). But, in its dying moments, Dwyer unleashes a squealing, distorted guitar solo: Even when their pendulum is swinging at a steadier pace, Thee Oh Sees still have the power to hypnotize — but from its twitchy jams to its blown~out power ballads, A Weird Exits’ most intriguing moments come when they break the trance.
