9. Thee Oh Sees – “Web”

Thee Oh Sees new album

Back in 2013, word got out that John Dwyer and Thee Oh Sees were going on an indefinite hiatus, a shock to the many fans of one of the most prolific garage rock acts in the game. But, true to their frenetic pace, that hiatus seemed to last all of a few minutes, and now Dwyer and co. are back with yet another new album. The first taste, “Web”, opens on a rippling bass march and Dwyer’s characteristic psychedelic guitar slashes. It’s all pretty predictably stony — at least until Nick Murray breaks into a shimmying beat and Dwyer breathily whispers out the staccato lines, like some sort of disturbed disco daydream. “Web” and the rest of Mutilator Defeated At Last will be available for purchase on April 19th. –Adam Kivel
