Artist: Thee Oh Sees
Label: In The Red
This album is yet another lo-fi, semi-psychedlic, garage rock release, but this one actually stands apart. John Dwyer has worked to balance his various influences, allowing the album to be catchy, but not cheesy, and rough around the edges without sounding amateur. Maybe it’s because of the wide range of groups he’s been in, but this album is focused, mature, and a lot of fun. Thee Oh Sees have floated all the way up from number 17 until finally making the jump to number one this week.
This is KSPC’s #1 album for the week of July 20, 2009
