Thee Oh Sees will release another LP; San Francisco rejoices

The new album cover: music goes in there.

Yep, it's true – another Thee Oh Sees record is on the way -- not that we are complaining. Just six months after releasing their last LP (Castlemania), it was announced this week that John Dwyer and crew will release another dirty punk/psych garage record (Carrion Crawler/The Dream) this Nov.15 on In the Red Records. He just keeps churning them out. If you can remember that far back, the band released three albums in 2009. See below for the track listing and some fun videos.

Carrion Crawler/The Dream:
01 Carrion Crawler
02 Contraption/Soul Desert
03 Robber Barons
04 Chem-Farmer
05 Opposition
06 The Dream
07 Wrong Idea
08 Crushed Grasss
09 Crack in Your Eye
10 Heavy Doctor

Dwyer is a San Francisco staple at this point, like weed or broken down buses -- as much as he'd probably hate to hear that. Depending on when you arrived in this city (oh, you were born here? Well, this sentence isn't for you), you likely discovered his high-held, frenetic guitar attacks during one of three eras: Pink and Brown (1997), Coachwhips (2001) or the fully-evolved Thee Oh Sees (it originally began as his solo side-project). Of course, there were bands in between, but those mentioned were the era-defining acts.

In celebration of this always-welcome announcement, let's look back at Dwyer's career in video form:

For those itching to see the band live again, its next local show is the Treasure Island Festival on Oct. 16.
