Duds
Of A Nature Or Degree

In this years incredible (but welcome) news, Manchester's Duds  - a band I described as simply 'ok' when I saw them live have now signed to John Dwyer's Castle Face. They update the short, sharp, shock of the likes of the Fire Engines and Josef K with jittery post punk moves and now sit alongside their heroes on this legendary label. This could be your new favourite and they are local (ish).

The Intelligence
Live In San Francisco

The latest release in Castle Face’s Live In San Francisco series comes courtesy of The Intelligence. Lars Finberg and his band of Seattle punks tear through a bunch of live-wire tunes that take in everything from Country Teasers to Wire. Recorded in a tiny basement beneath a vintage clothes store and coming with the John Dwyer seal of approval, this one is American as apple pie.

Exit Group
Adverse Habitat

Following in the footsteps of bands such as Useless Eaters and Dry Erase come Exit Group with Adverse Habitat. Like their peers. Exit Group take inspiration from Wire, Swell Maps and Chrome, but it also sounds like it was recorded in a basement with barely functioning electricity, walls covered in lichen and puddles on the floor - an adverse habitat indeed. LP and CD on Castle Face.

Thee Oh Sees
Mutilator Defeated At Last

A new year, a new album. That’s how it goes. Thee Oh Sees are back with more dirty, messy rock. Having strayed from their noisy ways on 2014's Drop, their new album Mutilator Defeated at Last is right back on our favorite track of unforgiving tracks packed with racks of distorting effects and overdriven amplifier stacks.

Ty Segall
Ty Segall

Though he has spent the intervening years making himself known as the most prolific man in rock, back in 2008 Ty Segall was fresh out of The Traditional Fools and the new hot signing on John Dwyer’s Castle Face Records. His eponymous debut LP is a ragged, roughshod affair that is over and done in under 25 minutes. While Segall’s subsequent albums have been progressively more polished, this one sounds like it was recorded inside a tin can. This is a good thing - it provides songs like ‘Go Home’ with a pleasingly brittle edge.

Thee Oh Sees
An Odd Entrances

Thee Oh Sees take a slight break from their constant forward motion by adding something to a previous release: An Odd Entrances is to be considered as a sister album to A Weird Exits. Dwyer and co here explore the flipside to their usual frantic garage thrashings, with a set of calmer tracks full of cellos and flutes. Gorgeous as ever of course. On Castle Face, naturally.

Thee Oh Sees
Fortress

Thee Oh Sees really love ‘Fortress’ imagery don’t they? I’m sure this is the 3rd or 4th release associated with fortresses, always suggesting that John Dwyer’s garage-punk heroes are mounting a dramatic adventure. Lovely. The Fortress single is a stand-alone release recorded in the same sessions as the recent Mutilator album, plus a live cut on the flip! 7” on Castle Face.
  • Vinyl 7" (CF068)

Oh Sees
Smote Reverser

Seemingly incapable of stopping making music for one second, this is Oh Sees 6th album in the last three years if you include Thee Oh Sees and OCS in that tally. Yet Dwyer keeps pushing forward with his double drum line up with all kinds of alumni making guest appearances. Expect more scorching psych but this time with a heavy prog vibe (see sleeve).

LFZ
Name Plus Focus

Making their bow on Castle Face are retro-futurists LFZ. Name Plus Focus arrives with the John Dwyer Seal Of Approval - probably par for the course given that it is being released by his label. One spin of this LP and you can see why. The icy, vaguely proggy synthscapes here are the sort of thing that has been creeping into Thee Oh Sees/Oh Sees/OCS sound for some time now. For fans of Italians Do It Better, or perhaps Wendy Carlos if you’re of a more classic disposition.

Uranium Club
Live At Acri Taun

Uranium Club take Italy! The fast and hard Minneapolitans (really? apparently) with the(e) Oh Sees co-sign thrill Fidenza with forty minutes of tight post-punk. You'll wish you'd been there, and maybe if you buy this you can be! I have personally missed their Leeds show and I am FILLED with regret.

Damaged Bug
Cold Hot Plumbs

John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees fame spits out another collection of would be hits under his Damaged Bug moniker. Cold Hot Plumbs is a synth workout with a distinctly analogue sound, packed with colour, texture and Dwyers famous ear for melody. Warm you plumbs on this. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Castel Face.
  • Vinyl LP (CF050)

Once & Future Band
Brain

Oakland based four-piece Once & Future Band originally released their Brain EP in 2014. After their debut full length they are back to writing, and in the meantime they have rereleased Brain to keep your appetite for the poppiest prog you will ever hear. They bring you the 70’s with a glorious pop shimmer.
  • Vinyl LP (CF103)

Prettiest Eyes
Pools

Latest LP Pools from Los Angeles based three-piece Prettiest Eyes. Their psych-rock sound is a little more menacing than their name suggests, packing a punch with elements of noise and industrial thrown in. These guys come recommended by John Dwyer of Oh Sees. Pools is out on LP or CD on Castle Face.

OCS
Memory Of A Cut Off Head

What must it be like to make a record every week? Well John Dwyer is trying to find out with his various Thee Oh Sees, Oh Sees and OCS records simultaneously causing panic within our filing system. This latest release sees him reunite with vocal foil Brigid Dawson creating a hushed affair at odds with his recent energetic garage rock. Back to the roots. Quiet and sumptuous.

ORB
Naturality

ORB land on your stereo from Australia, routed via California by John Dwyer’s superb Castle Face label. Naturality is some very fine mind-warped psychedelic heavy goodness, able to drop down deep and stonery but also capable of sharpening things up for some tighter action. Well worth the attention of all sorts of psych-heads.

Flat Worms
Flat Worms

Flat Worms are the latest band of guitar-driven party noisemakers to be circulated by John Dwyer’s Castle Face label, and they’ve just delivered their debut full-length album. Flat Worms is gorgeously gnarly, with guitars riffing on the point of feedback and a high-powered rhythm section whipping everything into a frenzy. Good fun.

Oh Sees
Orc

Rebranded garage rock professors Oh Sees have become a little more informal with this one -- "please, call me Oh Sees", they ask as you step into their office for a chat. Cool dads. They follow up duelling records A Weird Exits and An Odd Entrances (one a hard-hitting, twice-drummed psych rock record, the other a soft experimental curveball) with Orc, which is loud and turgid a la its title. Some of the gnarliest work here, it would appear -- "ew" is the watchword.
  • Vinyl Double LP (CF093)
  • CD (CF093CD)

Kelley Stoltz
Que Aura

Remember the Beatles? Kelly Stoltz has done on previous albums but here he dips into other forms of anglophile music with nods to Pulp, Fleetwood Mac (they were kinda English) and the Cleaners From Venus. Quality power pop from a man who deserves to be known more than just being the Dwight Twilley of his generation.

John Dwyer
Exploded Globes: An Annotated Collection Of Posters 1999-2016

John Dwyer, leader of Thee Oh Sees and king of the Castle Face record label, is almost as prolific with his visual artwork as with his music. Exploded Globes gathers up seventeen-years-worth of posters that he has created, accompanied by tantalising annotations that tell tales of what happened at the shows. This is Castle Face’s first book publication.

Magnetix
Live In San Francisco

The Castle Face label manage to do Magnetix justice. Get a basement in San Francisco, ram it full of people and hit record. Not rocket science, but the resulting recordings encapsulates the frantic and sweaty energy the french duo are renowned for. Chunky, get up and yell garage rock. Get going. CD and LP on Castle Face.
  • Vinyl LP (CF090)
  • CD (CF090CD)

I.L.Y.'s
Bodyguard

Third full length album from The I.L.Y’s, the experimental rock side project from Death Grips’ Zach Hill and Andy Morin and features Tristan Tozer (Drug Apartments) on guitar this time round. Incredibly catchy, open armed, and messy. It’s dirty high energy pop with a Lightning Bolt attitude. Riotous fun.
  • Vinyl LP (CF097)
  • CD (CF097CD)

Male Gaze
Miss Taken

Out on John Dwyer's Castle Face imprint here are a band who make the sort of lo-fi, in-the-red garage racket that you'd expect. The three protagonists have been rounded up from various punk bands to throw their energies into this six heeled outfit who have the pleasure of getting an impenetrable press release written by none other than Sir Henry Rollins. 
  • Vinyl LP (CF091)
  • CD (CF091CD)

Dream Machine
The Illusion

Dream Machine get right on down to the funky world of 70’s hard rock with The Illusion, which could very much have come out of the catalogues of an Iron Butterfly or a Deep Purple. There is a joyous revelry in the dance of the organ and the guitars, and in the harmonised vocals. The Illusion is out on John Dwyer’s Castle Face label.

Damaged Bug
Bunker Funk

Damaged Bug is the cracked-up solo project of Thee Oh Sees frontman and all-round garage-psych mastermind John Dwyer. Bunker Funk is a cool little thing, wrapping songs in lots of strange sounds and textures. Electroacoustic garage-funk? Yeah, something like that. Out on Dwyer’s own imprint Castle Face.

Warm Soda
I Don't Wanna Grow Up

Power pop guys Warm Soda bow out of the game with this, their fourth and final album. I Don’t Wanna Grow Up is an excitable but melancholy set of heartfelt rocking tunes, with bouncy rhythms and guitars and sing-song vocals. We’ll all be sad to see Warm Soda go, but at least it's on a high eh? Out on Castle Face.

  • Castle Face

Thee Oh Sees
A Weird Exits

Didn’t Thee Oh Sees split up a year or so ago? I’m pretty sure they did, but it obviously didn’t last long, because they are back back back with a new album! I guess John Dwyer just couldn’t hold the garage-rock energy back any longer. A Weird Exits is extra-rhythmic (two drummers) and extra-hypnotising: it's also spread across 2 LPs, with the D-side containing an etching. On Dwyer’s own Castle Face imprint.
  • Vinyl Double LP (CF080)
  • CD (CF080CD)

Blank Square
Animal I

Blank Square make punk-music-gone-weird, engaging with the lessons of messed-up no wave and also pushing a saxophone to the front of their sound. Animal I is their debut record, and the deep and odd punk fans are going to go wild for it. Released, naturally enough, on John Dwyer’s Castle Face label.
  • Vinyl LP (CF084)
  • CD (CF084CD)

POW!
Crack An Egg

POW! are gnarly synth-punks who manage to mix the gorgeous garage-throb of bands like Thee Oh Sees (whose main man John Dwyer is releasing this record via his Castle Face label) with bright and shiny synth melodies that maintain a strong sweet-pop backbone to the sound. Crack An Egg is just a lot of fun y’all. CD / LP editions on Castle Face.

Once & Future Band
Once & Future Band

Once & Future Band are a full-on throwback to the rich flavours of the great orchestral-prog-pop of the 1970’s. This self-titled debut of theirs sounds like a mash-up of all the nicest bits from all those bands, but performed with such love and skill that it all sounds new and fun. Nobody does this kind of music anymore anyway. Released by John Dwyer’s Castle Face label.

  • CD (CF083CD)

Feral Ohms
Live in San Francisco

Live In San Francisco is the live debut LP from Oakland band Feral Ohms. Sparks fly here as the Californian trio present their brand of raw, animalistic psychedelia in an explosive live setting. Expect rapid tempos, thunderous drums, bellowing vocals and virtuosic riffs. Released as Vinyl LP on the Castle Face label.
  • Vinyl LP (CF082)
  • CD (CF082CD)

Ty Segall Band
Live in San Francisco

Garage punk went down a wormhole when Ty Segall turned up -- it's never coming back. On about his ten thousandth release by now, Live In San Fransisco spans two shows in the eponymous San Fran. Segall and his band fight an enamoured crowd with as much feedback as you can double pack in a shopping bag.

Male Gaze
King Leer

Male Gaze are a band that has scooped up members of garage-punk groups to form a formidable roster: members of Mayyors, Blasted Canyons and The Mall are all here. King Leer is an especially poppy record with that heritage in mind, but plenty of fuzz and fire remains, don’t you worry. King Leer is, of course, released by John Dwyer’s Castle Face label.

ORB
Birth

Australian trio ORB land on John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees)’s Castle Face imprint to take the label’s garage-psych vibe in a slightly different direction. That gloriously tangible fuzz-sound is still present on Birth, but the music underneath it is closer to proggy hard-rock than to garage-punk. Just as good a fit though!
  • Vinyl LP (CF076)
  • CD (CF076CD)

Useless Eaters
Relaxing Death

To use the word ‘relaxing’ to describe any aspect of Useless Eaters would be a misnomer. However, the San Francisco-based futuristic punks have decided to call their new album Relaxing Death. An uneasy ride of jittering synths and looping drum machines through a dystopian future that may already be here.
  • Vinyl LP (CF078)

Thee Oh Sees
Live In San Francisco

Thee banner garage rawk band played the Chapel out in San Francisco, launching their happy-go-lucky psychedelia into a crowd of possibly stoned hopefuls. This extensive set is presented not only as audio but in DVD format with photos to boot. Musically, it scales more towards their propulsive, loud, noisy side -- but the Oh Sees have so many songs I'd expect you'll feel a little bit of everything.
  • Vinyl Double LP (CF075)
  • CD (CF075CD)

Zig Zags
Running Out Of Red

Zig Zags are a band still in love with old-school thrash metal, but instead of filtering it into some trendier new genre, they just follow their hearts and start headbanging. Running Out Of Red is classically gnarly and full of thick riffs: it literally rocks. Released on John Dwyer’s Castle Face label.
  • Vinyl LP (CF072)

Mountains and Rainbows
Particles

Mountains and Rainbows are a good-time Detroit band led by Matt Z, the drummer in Tyvek. They are one of those bands who become legendary on their local circuit, but aren’t fussed with spreading the word any further (this is their first proper album release, despite the band having been around a decade). Thanks due to John Dwyer then, who now presents Particles on his Castle Face imprint.

Deep Throats
Good Bad Pretty

Deep Throats were an old San Francisco band with a heady garage rock sound. This release gathers up their final recordings, previously unheard by the public at large. Good Bad Pretty is released by Castle Face, the essential garage rock imprint of John O’Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees, for whom Deep Throats were clearly an influence.

Synthetic ID
Impulses

Synthetic ID are a punk band with a cold, anxious aesthetic: these songs sound like they are constantly looking over their shoulder to check for impending threats. Tight and sharp and excellent. Impulses is released by John O’Dwyer’s (of Thee Oh Sees) essential garage rock imprint Castle Face.

Bronze
Live In San Francisco

Bronze’s playful electro-drone sounds great in the studio, but live is where their ferocious sound really makes sense. So thankfully Castle Face release Live In San Francisco, where the band’s unhinged blend of drone, primitive electronics and radiophonic pop are truly let loose. Available on CD and vinyl LP.
  • CD (CF066CD)

Sunwatchers
Sunwatchers

Heavy and avant-garde drone rock on the Castle Face label. On their self-titled album Sunwatchers make a dense and repetitive instrumental music that borrows from rock, free improv and minimalist composition to create something not much like any of those genres. It’s like a giant La Monte Young-listening jam band making the loudest, strangest and most astonishing racket they can.
  • Vinyl LP (CF070)
  • CD (CF070CD)

Feels
Feels

John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees) continues to sniff out the highest-grade garage-rock / indie-pop for his Castle Face label: for the latest release, we have the debut full-length of LA band Feels. Everything you want from a grrl-fronted garage record, plus production from Ty Segall, who certainly knows his way around this music.

Kelley Stoltz
In Triangle Time

Kelly Stoltz has a slick hand for off-key indie pop, throwing out busily layered, craftily written, joyously performed numbers like it ain’t no thing. In Triangle Time he increases the synth quotient, but still keeps things close to the ground. Twelve fun tracks, out on John Dwyer’s energetic Castle Face label.
  • Vinyl LP (CF060)
  • CD (CF060CD)

Running
Wake Up Applauding

Running play a kind of garage repeato-rock (of course they do, they are on John Dwyer’s Castle Face! The spiritual home of all such musics), but they might be the most overcranked-sounding garage band I’ve heard in some time. Wake Up Applauding is thick with distortion and reverb, with a forward-driving momentum that feels unstoppable. Ferocious.
  • CD (CF065CD)
  • Label(s):
  • Castle Face

Naked Lights
On Nature

John Dwyer’s Castle Face Records presents Naked Lights, a group who work the post-punk vibes without missing out on the crucial rhythmic ingredient that made so many of those original bands so essential. As well as the shifting and shuffling rhythm section, On Nature is full of on-or-off the beat guitar swipes. Gnarly-groovy.
  • Label(s):
  • Castle Face

Useless Eaters
Live in San Francisco

Useless Eaters’ entry into John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees) Castle Face label’s ongoing series Live In San Francisco delivers exactly what you want from a live garage punk show. All the best tracks from the band’s catalogue, but with extra lashings of mess, energy and sweat. Sounds like it was a wild party.
  • Vinyl LP (CF064)
  • CD (CF064CD)

The Space Lady / Burnt Ones
Split

LA residents Burnt Ones describe their brand of fuzzy psychedelia as “amateur” and “guesswork” which suggests to me they have a sense of humour at least. They asked the otherworldly Space Lady to split an album with them and she said yes. Side one belongs to her - she glides through dreamy, lo-fi synth versions of Across The Universe, Starman and Somewhere Over The Rainbow and adds the odd original tune to the mix. Side two sees Burnt Ones do what they do, which in this case includes a version of the Space Lady classic, Synthesize Me.
  • Vinyl LP (CF058)

W-X
W-X

W-X’s self-titled album mixes the garagey vibe associated with the Castle Face label (John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees imprint) with a little experimentalism, throwing weird tape echoes and other such sounds all over the mix. It works, with the whole thing disorientating and drawing in the listener in equal measure.

Apprentice Destroyer
Glass Ceiling Universe

Glass Ceiling Universe is released on John Dwyer’s Castle Face Records, and although it shares aspects of its sound with the garage-punk of Thee Oh Sees and much of the label’s roster, Apprentice Destroyer sounds like a cosmic robot’s interpretation of that genre. Which is a good thing, obviously.
  • CD (CF063CD)

The Fresh & Onlys
Early Years Anthology

A very valuable release here from The Fresh & Onlys, compiling together top-notch early material. The Early Years Anthology is bursting at the seams with Bay Area DIY garage-punk fun, and is released with the assistance of John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees) on his very own Castle Face label. Out on LP or CD.

The Blind Shake
Live in San Francisco

The Blind Shake played Live In San Francisco back in 2013, and, to all our delight, the recordings are now seeing the light of day as part of John Dwyer’s Castle Face label’s live series. Shaking, rocking, high-energy heavy hillbilly thrash. The recording sounds great, really transmitting the feel of the live room into your stereo system.

Creeping Pink
Mirror Woods

John ‘Thee Oh Sees’ Dwyer’s Castle Face label puts out this new album from Creeping Pink, a great slice of oddity that hazes all over the place. Sonic elements include piano, organ, guitar, and a whole lot of unidentifiable stuff that gives Mirror Woods an excellently strong sense of character.
  • Vinyl LP (CF053)

Male Gaze
Gale Maze

Clattering energy fuzz oozes from between the grooves of this new album from Male Gaze, cannily named Gale Maze. Garage-punk action of the highest order, as we’ve all come to expect from Castle Face, the label of John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees). Pretty heavy, but fast and fun along with it. Boom boom boom.

Warm Soda
Symbolic Dream

The third LP from lo-fi rock/pop lads Warm Soda. Symbolic Dream is a record of short, driving teenage pop tunes to rock-out to and just have a great time, with a punk attitude toward guitar and almost a hint of Pulp with the vocals. It’s the soundtrack to teenage ambivalence and the shrugging of shoulders.

POW!
Fight Fire

John Dwyer’s Castle Face label continues to be the number-one go-to location for joyously fuzzed-up garage-punkishness. Fight Fire, the new album from POW!, fits comfortably into that mold, except with a bit more synth duelling with the guitar over the perpetual motion rhythm section. Lots of fun on vinyl or CD!

Jack Name
Weird Moons

Castleface are putting out this new one from the mercurial Jack Name. At first glance Weird Moons sounds a little darker, or colder, than previously. Fans of label-boss John Dwyer’s music, or John Maus should take note. On CD and vinyl and coming down the highway in a trashy 80s thriller on a busted VHS tape.

Ex-Cult
Cigarette Machine

I wonder if they ever were in an actual cult? Ex-Cult is what this group of hard, moshing rockers call themselves and Cigarette Machine is the LP. It’s rough, it’s Doc Martens wearing, it’s leather jacket clad bikers blowing bulbous balloons of pink gum, it’s head banging to the heavy drums, eye rolling to the woozing, scratching guitar and phlegm spitting to the drunken vocals. It’s here to stay.

Useless Eaters
Bleeding Moon

Useless Eaters is the one man garage rocker Seth Sutton, and 'Bleeding Moon' is shaped from scrappy guitars, snarling bass and a heap of up-to-no-good lyrics. Sutton makes the kind of quick in-and-out guitar pop that makes Jay Reatard and Ty Segall so compelling, bringing to mind the best of the garage rippers who go it alone.
  • CD (CF042CD)

Icky Boyfriends
Live in San Francisco

Icky Boyfriends might not to be everyone’s taste with their songs about spermicide and dental dams, but there is more to them than that. They certainly are loud, raucous, and rocking. Scuzzy heroes of the San Francisco freak scene, this live album captures their iconic sound. On vinyl and CD.

Coachwhips
Get Ya Body Next To Mine

Castle Face announces a loogie-shined re-release of  Coachwhips’ Get Yer Body Next Ta Mine on CD and vinyl! The tracks have been re-tweaked to taste (a pinch of capsicum) and what a picture emerges—the scuzz and squall cracking ever so slightlyand revealing a coffee-can full of earworms underneath.The zombie-shuffle come-on of the title track is worth the price of admission alone, but there’s adrenalized bludgeoners here as well: “1000 Years,” “UFO, Please TakeHer Home” and “Yes, I’m Down” all capture the band attheir sweat-soaked best.
  • CD (CF041CD)

OBN IIIs
Live in San Francisco

Castle Face Records presents the latest installment of the Live in San Francisco series, courtesy of OBN III’s (Tic Tac Totally, 12XU, Matador). “If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s this: Don’t buy drugs from strangers on the street while wasted. A simple yet effective rule. Evidently no one told these reckless Texans, OBN III’s. We’ve captured them at their sweatiest for our Live in San Francisco series at the Chapel, from the kickoff shows of the tour with Thee Oh Sees last fall…. “These dudes are animals, period. This live recording is mixed like a hot pan on the brain, and it captures the raw live energy of a great OBN III’s show. Just about everynight from note one, Orville [Bateman Neeley III] is in the crowd touching faces of fans and making OBN virgins uncomfortable. Let them touch your face (ewww).”—John Dwyer
