There’s a strong argument that California’s Oh Sees are the biggest underground rock band in the world right now, an ultra-propulsive, workaholic garage rock band driven by frontman John Dwyer into wild new territory with every album.
“Our next album is far more progressive-sounding,” Dwyer tells MOJO in a rare interview in our new issue (MOJO 297, out on June 26 in the UK). “Maybe that comes with age.”
Need proof? Here’s an exclusive stream of one of the key tracks from the forthcoming Oh Sees album, Smote Reverser: C, one which showcases their ability to tap into jazzier, Can-like territory without ever diminishing their ferocity and thrust.
And attention, MOJO subscribers! Watch closer than ever for your new issues arriving: inside, you’ll find an exclusive flexidisc of Oh Sees’ C, produced by MOJO in collaboration with the Castle Face label.
