Thee Oh Sees, Warm Slime, Vinyl LP, CD, In The Red Records
The ridiculously prolific Bay Area band Thee Oh Sees are back with another full length long player. Warm Slime is guaranteed to please fans of their whacked out garage, psych,punk jams. Recorded by Sacramento sultan of sound Chris Woodhouse, Warm Slime carries on in the same tradition as the groups previous In The Red release, Help, showcasing their more electrified and rocking side, in comparison to other recent home recorded releases.
The centerpiece is undoubtedly the mind bending title track, which clocks in at nearly 14 minutes and takes up the entirety of the album s first side. It’s a psychedelic epic of Inna Gadda Da Vida proportions. John Dwyers guitar playing is at its quadraspazzed best here, and the vocal interplay with Brigid Dawson gives it a B 52s at their least cheesy crossed with the Troggs vibe. The results are stunning. ‘Thee Oh Sees incorporate the oft-referenced Nuggets stuff in a way that feels reverential. With grinding guitars and bah bah bah vocals, but with the punk and new wave elements also at play, they don’t feel trite or plagiarized. This is like meat and potatoes prepared by a master chef-totally familiar but utterly delicious.’ ‘Pitchfork.
Recorded by Chris Woodhouse, this is one of the best sonic blasts you will trash your speakers with this year….Raw, and real. Opening track is 13 minutes long, yes, we’ll take it…
