Music With Balls (Thee Oh Sees)

23 Mar

Just  after hearing some of these guys stuff through all the SXSW music Im being delightfully bombarded with at the moment, had to stick abit up as its the first time Ive heard something with this much “umph” (cant quite think of a word for it) in awhile, it makes me think of “My Bloody Valentine” and “Jesus And Mary Chain” but all played double or triple time in a much more garage rock fashion. The 12 string guitar playing lead with a standard 6 string playing the basslines along with the mix of effected vocals from the front man John Dwyer give this band a very interesting sound, but its the melodies kept afloat by keyboardist/tambourine & vocalist Brigid Dawson that bring this altogether to form something very intersting indeed. Ill be Keeping an eye on these guys for sure.

Deadly video of this track created from three frame loops of footage from their SXSW tour in 2010, these guys made it but I dont know much more than youtbe will tell me.

CO-DIRECTED BY ADA BLIGAARD SØBY & BRIAN LEE HUGHES. CINEMATOGRAPHY BY ADA BLIGAARD SØBY. PRODUCED BY BRIAN LEE HUGHES OF PUBLIC PRODUCTION LLC. EDITED BY JACINTO ASTIAZARAN.

  1. Dead Wolf Club, the hard second album. « Itsatangent - January 23, 2013

    […] Dead Wolf club are set to release their second album entitled RAR on Feb 11th. A punky, shoe gazery, garage tinged 40 something minutes of an album. Its got plenty for all the different kinds of music fans out there, if you like to just headbang and jump around or sit with your headphones on examine the minute details of each song you will find something to enjoy here. The lead single, Strange Letters is a distorted guitar frenzy with moments of laid back melancholic vocals that build into a big chorus. Apparently the lyrics have something to do with examining the Hebrew text of the book of Genesis which makes sense from a band that identify themselves as Dark Punk Geek Rage. The album themes float from the economic struggle in the UK to science vs religion vs nature, as regards all that you can figure it out for yourself. Its a good punk garage sound their producing and its worth listening too if you want to hear something akin to My Bloody Valentine, Test Icicles, Wavves or Thee Oh Sees. […]
