Thee Oh Sees - A Weird Exits

Right at the start of July we were knocked out by the superb Thee Oh Sees Live In San Francisco LP, part of Castleface's amazing live series (and for our money the best live LP we've stocked in years).

Barely six weeks on and we're treated to the second Thee Oh Sees record of the summer with the ripping new double LP A Weird Exits. Our record of the week is the first set of studio recordings that capture the muscular rhythm section of twin drummers Ryan Moutinho and Dan Rincon with ringer bassist Tim Hellman cracking spines. Sonically is winds it's way to life, it's pretty hypnotic stuff at the start with the organs creating the sonic beds. But this is Thee Oh Sees and when it pops, it really rips, head-splitting rock and roll jams with soaring leading guitar parts and John Dwyer's controlled howls. They are pretty much untouchable, life affirming rock and roll that grabs your limbs and hurls you about.
