Description

“Filled with caricatured vocals, high-pitched guitar solos and spacey interludes, Orc is consistently mindboggling and ear-tingling. It seems as though the Oh Sees (formerly ‘Thee Oh Sees’) have transitioned from a consistently good jammy group into one that is brainy, brawny and innovative.” - The Quietus

The newly shorn Oh Sees waste no time in racing headlong into nightmarish battle with the mighty Orc, clawing even farther up the ghastly peak stormed so satisfyingly by last year’s A Weir­d Exits.

Fresh blood Paul Quattrone joins Dan Rincon to form a phalanx of interlocking double drums, alternately propelling and fleet-footing shifting ground to pinion John Dwyer’s cliff-face guitars to the boogie. Tim Hellman keeps it swinging like a battle-axe to the eyebrows. The tunes veer toward the violence of their live shows, with a few tasty swerves into other lanes: heavy to lush, groovy to stately. Throughout, it remains sinister in its swaggering skulk, manic in its fuzz-fried fugues. They hit all the sweet spots the heads foggily remember, and there’s plenty to sweat over if you just hopped into the sauna.
