Thee Oh Sees, Creaturos
Thee Oh Sees
Thee Oh Sees are the latest incarnation of songwriter, singer, and guitarist John Dwyer's ever-evolving pop-folk psychedelic group. Dwyer, who hails from Providence, RI, has been active on the San Francisco indie scene since the late '90s, working with several bands, including the Coachwhips, Pink & Brown, Yikes, Up Its Alive, and Swords & Sandals, among others, and he formed OCS (which is an acronym for Orinoka Crash Suite, Orange County Sound, or whatever Dwyer decided it was on any given day) initially as a vehicle for the experimental instrumentals he was producing in his home studio.
CREATUROS' SWAMPP THINGG is a psychotic blend of garage rock burners and psychedelic explorations recorded in 4 different spots over the past year. Mixed at home by guitarist Spenser Gralla, SWAMPP THINGG captures the raw energy of the band's live shows and then turns it inside-out through various mind-melting experimentations and manipulations.
