That’s not like a new flavour of your favourite toast topping. If it was it’d be ‘blueberry and apricot with a twist of lime’ jam. Mmmm. No, what Mojo magazine have (and the link is here) is a new five minute burst of intense music from Oh Sees – who used to be The Oh Sees, and before that were Thee Oh Sees. With age comes a bit of name trimming and also a move away from straight ahead garage rock to what John Dwyer describes as music that is ” far more progressive-sounding“. Umm…well, maybe not so very proggy, sounds like a late sixties jam to us, bit bluesy in the keyboards, bit driven in the tempo. But listen-up and decide for yourselves. It’s the new Oh Sees, and their European tour hits the UK in a couple of weeks time and again at the end of August and into September.
