Thee Oh Sees - A Weird Exits album review
John Dwyer’s Californian quartet Thee Oh Sees deliver in spacey spades.
So prolific they make Ty Segall look like a layabout, Thee Oh Sees have averaged over an album a year since they began in earnest in 2003, without taking into account various EPs, live offerings and standalone singles. Driven by the restless energy of singer/guitarist John Dwyer, the band are garage-rock at the core, but with a foraging sense of curiosity that leads to fascinating detours into prog, psychedelia and electronica. This successor to last year’s Mutilator Defeated At Last arrives in the direct wake of Live In San Francisco, a doughty double album and DVD that captures Thee Oh Sees at a furious tilt.
