Thee Oh Sees band leader John Dwyer presents his 20th LP (in as many years!) returning to his OCS roots for a quiet lo-fi folk feel for his psych! It is easy to forget (especially amidst the ringing of ears and aching of muscles after your typical Oh Sees show) that initially OCS was a rather hushed affair. After the minimalistic brutality of Coachwhips OCS was a diametric opposite corner of John’s musical world. Since then of course things got gradually louder faster crazier...the band evolved since then into the Oh Sees everyone knows. For the 20th Oh Sees release 100th Castle Face title and 20th year doing it John re-examines the quieter roots of it all in particularly baroque and homesteadly fashion. Memory of a Cut Off Head was co-written with longtime collaborator and vocal counterpoint Brigid Dawson recorded in total in John’s own Stu Stu Studio and it’s lush sumptuous in texture but satisfyingly retains the gentle grace of the early stuff. There’s beautifully executed strings throughout courtesy of Heather Lockie’s fine arrangements horn arrangements courtesy of Mikal Cronin. Another side to the See's!
