Thee Oh Sees, “Floating Coffin”

20131007-233222.jpg

Welcome back heavy bass and the practically patented echoing falsettos because John Dwyer’s mellow Putrifiers II mood is gone. Tracks like “Maze Fancier” bring back the band’s frantic side, while slower numbers like “Night Crawler”—with its heart-rattling low end—give the album a more ominous tone. Floating Coffin ends with Dwyer singing, “I get sick at my work every day/There is no cure but to stay, stay away.” Sorry, John, we can’t all run away from our jobs, but at least now we have 40 minutes of catharsis.
