The Ohsees - The Cool Death of Island Raiders


(Request)

Sorry about the lack of posts lately. With getting married a little over a month ago, a trip to Chicago for the Pitchfork Music Festival, and most recently moving down to Richmond, VA from Michigan, I haven't had time for the internets. But, I'm finally getting settled down, and I promise I'll get my shit rolling once again. So, since I haven't been keeping up with the new shit, I'll post a shoutbox request. I think I've expressed my love for John Dwyer quite clearly in my past posts of The Ohsees and Coachwhips posts. I used to listen to this album quite a bit when I first heard it, but after hearing Sucks Blood I started to ignore it, and then once their most recently incredible album The Masters Bedroom Is Worth Spending the Night In, I pretty much have ignored all their older material, so I'm glad someone requested this album because after listening to it once again, it will make it's way back into my listening rotation after quite the haitus. It's money.

Amazing album. I too have been soaking up "master's bedroom" lately, but it's nice to get back and listen to the older stuff. I too recently moved to richmond. Do you have any good record store recommendations, other than Plan 9?

i haven't found one yet. there's a place called Barky's that comes up when google for record stores, but i haven't gone there yet. i live a few blocks from plan 9, so i usually just walk there. if you find one, let me know.

I'll never forget the day I heard "Guilded Cunt" off of this album during a daily music stumble. Once I downloaded the album it didn't leave my side for weeks. I've remained a loyal fan ever since. None of their releases dissappoint.
