Oh Sees, the noisy California psych-rock outfit formerly known as Thee Oh Sees and also sometimes as just OCS but always featuring the maniacally productive John Dwyer, have announced yet another new album. Smote Reverser follows up last November’s Orc (as Oh Sees) and last August’s Memory of a Cut Off Head (as OCS).
First single “Overthrown” jams a dose of heavy metal skull-crushery into Oh Sees’ typically frenetic style, and the latest album’s cover art leans further into the theme with a painting of a dragon looming over a burning city. It looks like the cover of a fantasy novel, which coincidentally is artist Matt Stawicki’s main gig.
