Oh Sees – “Poisoned Stones” Video

Next month, John Dwyer’s prolific California garage-rock institution Oh Sees are releasing a new double album called Face Stabber; according to a press release, “This album is Soundcloud hip-hop reversed, a far flung nemesis of contemporary country and flaccid algorithmic pop-barf.”

Face Stabber comes almost exactly a year after their last LP, Smote Reverser. They’ve already shared its lead single, “Henchlock,” a 21-minute psychedelic freakout. Today, we hear their latest track, “Poisoned Stones.”

The new song is more concise, clocking in at just under four minutes, and comes with a music video by Eaten Alive Illustrations. A retro video game unfolds onscreen. Dwyer whispers while guitars burst and clank along.

In other Oh Sees news, they just auctioned off the cockpit set from their “Anthemic Aggressor” video for a winning bid of $787. All proceeds from the sale benefit Elizabeth House.

Watch the “Poisoned Stones” video below.
