The Ohsees - Sucks Blood



John Dwyer, formally of Pink & Brown and Coachwhips, has blessed my ears once again with yet another solid release from his latest project, The Ohsees (or The Oh Sees, Thee Oh Sees and formerly OCS, Orange County Sound, Orinoka Crash Suite). The band originated as a side project during his days with Coachwhips, but has developed into a full fledged effort. Sucks Blood is the second release from the band (as "The Ohsees"), and, in general, is a fuzzy drone version of early folk-pop with emphasis on the hypnotic psychedelia of the late 1960s. It may take a few listens for it to grow on you, but it will. Think of a reverb-drenched, laid back version of the Velvet Underground with the vocals taken up a few octaves.
