It seems that Thee Oh Sees’ John Dwyer has grown tired of the guitar-heavy garage psych that he’s been relentlessly releasing in the past 10 years. After putting his band on hiatus (fear not they’re not breaking up and are releasing another album in spring) he’s decided to experiment with something more electronic, surrounding himself with old synths, drum machines and home made electronics.
His influences are already clear from the album cover, a tribute to electronic music pioneering duo Silver Apples’ second album “Contact” with a Brian Eno portrait in plain view. It looks like we’re all set for a retro-futuristic space journey to the center of time, so fasten your seat-belt and look outside the window of your mind!
Before you do that though, click play below to listen to his first release, “Eggs at Night”, and look out for his full album titled “Hubba Bubba” out on February 24th on Castle Face, Dwyer’s label.
