Thee Oh Sees
Thee Oh Sees
Emerging from the distant light we have a new double LP from our own John Dwyer's Thee Oh Sees. The first studio recordings to capture the muscular rhythm section of double drummers Ryan Moutinho and Dan Rincon with ringer bassist Tim Hellman cracking spines, the groove and bludgeon we've come to expect from the live shows is captured seamlessly here - they go from zero to head-splitter from the get-go and on the rare occasions they do let up on the gas a bit, we're treated to some locked-in hypnotizers, too. The guitar sounds more colossal and ethereal at the same time, riding roughshod over the vacuum sealed rhythm section, spiraling skywards, and diving into the emerald depths so quick your guts tingle. Synths, strings and smoke soaked things crawl behind the scenes to make an extra far-out party platter. Served on 45 rpm plates for most excellent listening quality. With amazing visuals and a side D etching by air-brush-van-art maestro Robert Beatty…and packed in vape-proof goat skin. It’s a beast and it can be yours should you choose come August 12th.....come on now.

“Its 2016, and its time for Alex Cameron. Entertainer. Showman. Shaman. Side by side with his business partner and saxophonist, Roy Molloy, the duo are a living and breathing story of success told through the internet; unedited, unscripted, and, up until now, to a dedicated audience of no one. Thanks to the good people at Secretly Canadian that is about to change.
Described by Clash magazine as Sydneys most literate song writer, Cameron knows what he is doing, so much so that Jonathan Rado of the hit group Foxygen described the first Cameron performance he saw as one of the most memorable, moving concerts I have or will ever witness. And music icon Henry Rollins described Cameron as being right out of a David Lynch hell dream!”

“Now is the time to tune in. No hype, no horseshit. Just a hot car, a hot track, and all charges dropped. The video for Shes Mine was made by Mr. Jim Pillion. He’s very good at what he does, generally very highly paid. Unfortunately for Jim, Alex dug up some dirt on him that he couldn’t afford to have go public, so when we told Jim he should make a clip for us pro bono he got what we meant. Regardless of the circumstances, he did an incredible job. Really impressive stuff, so we kept what we knew in the dark. Gotta break a couple bones sometimes in this game.”

“Recorded completely in secret, one track at a time at Guitar Center, Apprentice Destroyer’s debut Glass Ceiling Universe transcends its immediately intriguing concept to highlight a hyperactive and omnivorous talent within. These are wide ranging, kaleidoscopic instrumental compositions, veering from disorientingly complex to achingly and delicately beautiful, but always with a metallic, misanthropic edge, as if these are computers playing to each other across the Guitar Center sales floor, laughing at the puny humans attempting to create harmonics in air as they can do so perfectly in the vacuum of binary. It’s lifestyle music for all you cyborg assassins out there.”
