    Oh Sees

    Pop

    Thee Oh Sees are the latest incarnation of songwriter, singer, and guitarist John Dwyer's ever-evolving pop-folk psychedelic group. Dwyer, who hails from Providence, RI, has been active on the San Francisco indie scene since the late '90s, working with several bands, including the Coachwhips, Pink & Brown, Yikes, Up Its Alive, and Swords & Sandals, among others, and he formed OCS (which is an acronym for Orinoka Crash Suite, Orange County Sound, or whatever Dwyer decided it was on any given day) initially as a vehicle for the experimental instrumentals he was producing in his home studio. In time OCS morphed into an actual band, and worked under the usual flurry of names, most notably as the Oh Sees or the Ohsees, and eventually as Thee Oh Sees, featuring Dwyer on guitar and vocals, Brigid Dawson on vocals and tambourine, Petey Dammit (sometimes listed as Petey Dammit!) on bass, and Mike Shoun on drums. Sounding a bit like the Mamas & the Papas run through a seriously bent garage blender, the band signed with the German Tomlab label and released Sucks Blood in 2007 and The Master's Bedroom Is Worth Spending a Night In in 2008. Thee Oh Sees second full-length effort Help appeared in 2009 and featured a bit of a garage rock vibe mixed with the band's psych-pop sound. The album Warm Slime followed in 2010. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

    Music

    Chicago guitar-slinger/songwriter, Paul Cary, is proud to announce the April 29th, 2014 release of Paul Cary & the Small Scarys’ sophomore LP, Coyote, produced by Johnathan Crawford and mixed by Greg Norman. This time his backing band has upped the level of hums and drums, fleshing out the sound into something haunting and driven. The record echoes past regrets and ethereal rural vignettes that could only come from a bootstrapped rural Iowan now transplanted to Chicago, where he works as a carpenter and continues writing and performing his music.
