Here, have a new Thee Oh Sees track

We're baa-aack.

It's been a while since any of us here in media-land mentioned John Dwyer in a non-despairing tone, let alone a context that actually involved a discussion of music.

Well, San Francisco, our dark days are over: Just over a month after the titan of the city's garage-rock scene announced a new solo project, Thee Oh Sees have dropped news of Drop, their follow-up to last year's Floating Coffin. The album will be out on Record Store Day, April 19. But to keep you from peeing your pants in anticipation, they've given us the album opener, "Penetrating Eye," and it's pretty sweet — all dark, angsty vocals over a fuzzy, whiny, feedback-filled wall of guitar. Good music for driving fast on the freeway at night, methinks. Give it a listen, via Castle Face:
