Everytime Thee Oh Sees premiere a new track for a forthcoming album, there are mixed feelings of excitement and curiosity. Will it be sharp and fuzzy like Carrion Crawler? Will it be psychedelic and melodic like Putrifiers II? What will John Dwyer’s characteristic, ever-morphing vocals sound like this time?
“Toe Cutter – Thumb Buster”, a snipbit from Thee Oh Sees’ upcoming LP Floating Coffin, is a heavy happy jam that reaffirms the band’s knack for really good psych-pop sensibility. Dwyer rocks a psychedelic faulsetto over just the right level of fuzz in this droned-out lullaby.
Grab Floating Coffin on April 16th. Until then, listen to “Toe Cutter – Thumb Buster” below and the album’s other released track “Minotaur”.
