- Sucks Blood by Thee Oh Sees
8/10 Brian Staff review, 17 July 2009
Punkapunkapunka. Thee Oh Sees, former AOTW champs and a group of lo-fi garage scamps close to Bizzy Lady's considerable busom have what is suspected to be their first album self re-released on Castle Face. I'm reviewing side two first in a fit of non regularity that may upset the apple cart but hey-ho. The second track is especially of note because after a couple mins of hazy shimmering & wasted vocals, the thing explodes in a load of weird sheet metal screeing which wouldn't be out of place on a musique concrete disquette. The tunes seem less in yr face & damaged than recent endeavours and call to mind the skewed 60s pop stylings of the Elephant 6 folk or some of Woods' strange druggy shambling. This "raspberry ripple effect" vinyl "plate" features some really weird atmospherics & eerie noise beneath the gorgeously fuzzy off-kilter psych-pop & queer out-folk. It's a gentler listen all in all but should appeal massively to any genuine connoisseur of cosmic Americana. Weird reviewing side two first, side one opens with a trashy sounding mid pacer but soon develops into more cerebral, evocative pixie rock. It's like they started listening early on to embryonic Bolan & Donovan and stuff. Really nice, quietly out there and the crinkly recording provides the template for their more recent amped-up efforts. True talents abound on 'Sucks Blood'
