This seems to be a compilation of singles. The third one. I’m nothing if not perceptive!
Here we have singles, rarities, covers, bits (and indeed bats) of stuff that are a lot easier to have all on one LP than to spend a fortune trying to get the originals...
There is stuff from a split 7” with Turner prize nominated artist David Shrigley, another from a Ty Segall split, and more from other things including one previously unreleased track. Already prolific and popular, you don't need me to tell you the sort of thing the band do. But I will anyway. It's taut, kind of shambolic, garage rock that is recorded for that full semi-live 'in your face' effect, with guitars seemingly strummed for maximum ear impact.
What they lack in outright melody they make up for in intensity. There’s a fantastically wiry cover of Sonic Youth’s ‘Burning Spear’ which fairly romps along in a cloud of fuzz and hiss. The band aren’t afraid of stretching away from their garage rock roots either: ‘What You Need’ is danceable post-punk stomp with a rubbery bassline and catchy, high pitched vocals. Thee Oh Sees meld energetic garage, psych and punk in such a way that I am almost tempted to get up off my chair and have a dance.
The CD contains a bonus live jam too!
