2017 release. The newly shorn Oh Sees waste no time in racing headlong into nightmarish battle with the mighty Orc, clawing even farther up the ghastly peak stormed so satisfyingly by last year's A Weird Exits. The band is in tour-greased, anvil-on-a-balance beam, gut-pleasingly heavy form, nimbly braining-with equal dashes of abandon and menace-on this fresh batch of bruisers and brooders, hypnotically stirred into to the cauldron of chaos you've come to expect. Fresh blood Paul Quattrone joins Dan Rincon to form a phalanx of interlocking double drums, alternately propelling and fleet-footing shifting ground to pinion John Dwyer's cliff-face guitars to the boogie. Tim Hellman keeps it swinging like a battle-axe to the eyebrows. The tunes veer toward the violence of their live shows, with a few tasty swerves into other lanes: heavy to lush, groovy to stately. Throughout, it remains sinister in it's swaggering skulk, manic in it's fuzz-fried fugues. They hit all the sweet spots the heads foggily remember, and there's plenty to sweat over if you just hopped into the sauna. More evil... more complex... more narcotic... more screech... more blare... more whisper... there's even more Brigid. Less Thee, but more of everything else.
