Well, it has arrived, the new album by cosmic gods Oh Sees. This psychedelic beast is called Face Stabber and it is a double LP! Out on Castle-Face Records August 16th.
I am bad with words so I won’t torment you with loads of letters and opinions. What I can say is that Oh Sees are one of my all time favourite bands and each album they release (and they release a lot of those, I believe we are at number 24) is filled with originality, craftmanship and sheer enthousiasm. ‘Face Stabber’ is again something different then their last album (wich was gorgeous) ‘Smote Reverser’. This album seems a bit more experimental, less heavy maybe then ‘Smote Reverser’.
With fourteen tracks, some of them over 10 minutes, Oh Sees gives us sonic feast. It takes time to listen to this spaced out tracks, interludes and heaviness but this impressive work is worth every second of your time.
Brace yourselves and tune in now.
