BottleRock 2014 Sunday: Thee Oh Sees And Deerhunter Deliver Strong Sets For Small Crowds

It's not uncommon for a festival's last day to be something of a comedown. It's Sunday, and everyone's sunburnt and hungover and staring down the barrel of a work week -- the return to reality matched with the physical fatigue of having stood out in a field for three days. It takes a powerful and… More »

Stream Thee Oh Sees Drop

We all got a bad scare late last year when the prolific and consistently great garage-psych institution Thee Oh Sees announced their hiatus, but now here we are just a few months later and the band is back with a brand new album. We've already heard some killer singles from it like "PenetratingMore »

Thee Oh Sees – “Drop” Video

Bay Area garage-rock torchbearers Thee Oh Sees announced a hiatus late last year, but not before they recorded Drop, a psychedelic Lemonhead of a new album that'll be out later this month. They've just shared a new video for the album's title track, and, like the clip for "The Lens," it's a head-spinning… More »

Thee Oh Sees – “Drop” (Stereogum Premiere)

The two songs we've heard from Thee Oh Sees' forthcoming Drop spanned a vast aesthetic distance; "Penetrating Eye" was a gnarly unhinged riff monster, while "The Lens" was a subdued and pretty psych ballad. "Drop," the album's title track, splits the difference, incorporating pop sensibilities and razor-sharp George Harrison guitar spasms into a… More »

Thee Oh Sees – “The Lens” Video

Even as frontman John Dwyer stays busy with his solo project Damaged Bug and his reunited old band the Coachwhips, on-hiatus garage-rock standard-bearers Thee Oh Sees will drop their new album Drop next month. Their new animated music video for the single "The Lens" is every bit as much as much a psychedelic bugout… More »

Thee Oh Sees – “The Lens”

Thee Oh Sees are not breaking up, just changing shape. And although John Dwyer just released his solo album as Damaged Bug and is playing Coachwhips reunion shows this month, his main band already has a new album called Drop coming out in April. We heard the riff-powered rager "Penetrating Eye" last month,… More »

Thee Oh Sees – “Penetrating Eye”

Prolific Bay Area psych-garage warriors Thee Oh Sees announced a hiatus last year, but even as they were doing it, they made it good and clear that they weren't breaking up for good, even claiming that they'd have an album out early in 2014. We now know the details: The new one is called… More »

Damaged Bug – “Photograph”

With Thee Oh Sees on hiatus, at least for now, frontman John Dwyer is busying himself with a new weirdo-synth solo project that he's calling Damaged Bug. His debut Damaged Bug album is called Hubba Bubba and due later this month, and we've already posted the deeply strange early track "Eggs At Night."… More »

Damaged Bug – “Eggs At Night”

Bay Area garage-psych greats Thee Oh Sees aren't breaking up, but they did recently announce a hiatus. Frontman John Dwyer, however, has spent the past decade-plus cranking out music at a furious pace, and he isn't going to let that hiatus stop him. Dwyer has a new solo project that he's calling Damaged Bug,… More »

Download Adult Swim’s Garage Swim Compilation

Right now, like no time since Crypt Records' mid-'90s heyday, the American indie underground is flush with excellent pedal-mashing, hormone-driven garage rock revivalists. And now, the great minds at Adult Swim have rounded up many of the best for their free-download Garage Swim compilation. We've already posted the Black Lips song "Cruising," but the… More »

Coachella 2013 Weekend 2: Sunday’s 5 Best Things

The common refrain about Coachella dictates: "It's not about the music, man, it's about the festival experience." With the dance/sex tents in full swing, dozens of corporate-sponsored hideaways at every corner offering shade and mild distraction in exchange for a few minutes of direct advertising access to your brain, and the untamed wilderness of the… More »

Thee Oh Sees – “Toe Cutter – Thumb Buster” Video

Last week, prolific San Franciscan garage-psych warriors Thee Oh Sees released their impressive new Floating Coffin album, and their new video for the falsetto wig-out "Toe Cutter - Thumb Buster" is a way tenser and less fanciful affair than the similarly violent "Minotaur" video. The clip, from director John Strong, chronicles, with wince-worthy… More »

Thee Oh Sees – “Minotaur” Video

Thee Oh Sees are set to release new LP Floating Coffins later this month and have given visuals to its first single "Minotaur." The marauding track is perfect for a clunky kind of adventure and the band has knocked it out of the park with a tale of wonky knights in search of a… More »

Thee Oh Sees – “Toe Cutter – Thumb Buster”

Thee Oh Sees' "Toe Cutter - Thumb Buster," from their upcoming spring release Floating Coffin, immediately lulls you into a state of droned out hypnosis. I don't want to ruin anyone's fun, because this is really something that's bringing me back to Bakesale if Lou Barlow had kept it heavy all the time, but… More »
