Thee Oh Sees, OBN III's, The Blind Shake
From Bill Perris, brooklynvegan.com:
Thee Oh Sees, whose latest album, Floating Coffin, came out back in April, are getting ready for a fall tour...
Some of the shows on this tour are with OBN IIIs (who were just in NYC) and Minnapolis' The Blind Shake. (Not in NYC unfortunately. UPDATE: both OBN IIIs and Blind Shake ARE playing, yay!) The latter have a new album, Key To A False Door, which will be out September 17 via (Oh Sees frontman) John Dwyer's Castle Face Records. Like their last, the record inhabits the stomping ground between protopunk and post punk (which you'd think would just be "punk," but it's not). We've got the premiere of the lead track from the LP, "Garbage On Glue," which you can stream below.
The Blind Shake are best experienced live, though, with an image that seems straight out of cheapo dystopian sci-fi flick and a drummer who seems like he's going to hammer the drums through the floor. They're playing Gonerfest next month, and maybe they'll add some more East Coast dates. All currently scheduled ones are listed below.
