Thee Oh Sees - Putrifiers II (White Vinyl)

Format: LP
Availability: In stock



Limited White Vinyl Repress.

With their reputation as one of America's most formidable live acts wholly assured, Thee Oh Sees explore the possibilities of the studio and more lustrous modes of psychedelia on Putrifiers II. It's a convenient gateway into the garage rock vets' dense discography. If the sheer enormity of Thee Oh Sees' dense discography has proven too forbidding for you to delve into, Putrifiers II is a convenient summary/gateway, opening with a killer shot of the band's patented echo-drenched fuzz-punk delirium ("Wax Face") and closing with a baroque, string-swept lullaby ("Wicked Park"), while traversing all points in between. But even as Putrifiers II turns more melodic and mellow, broadening the band's sonic scope with strings and woodwinds, it retains the nervy irreverence: With its shrieking cello line and opium-den ambience, "So Nice" unabashedly kneels before the shiny leather boots of the Velvet Underground's "Venus in Furs" and, as such, becomes a knowing allegory for the master/slave dynamic that plays out in the original.
