CD of the Week from Thee Oh Sees
Songwriter, singer and guitarist Jim Dwyer has been active on the San Francisco indie scene since the late 1990's. For the last half dozen or so years, he has led a band that has gone through many different styles (including lo-fi, experimental and psychedelic) and variations of the name Thee Oh Sees. Floating Coffin is the 12th release from this very prolific band, which includes Brigid Dawson (vocals, tambourine), Petey Dammit (bass) and Mike Shoun (drums) along with Dwyer. The new record can best be described as straight-ahead garage rock.
