While Thee Oh Sees are taking a well-deserved break, frontman John Dwyer is not. His label Castle Face is releasing more records than ever, including Hubba Bubba from Dwyer's new solo project, Damaged Bug. Recorded in the fall of 2013 using garage sale keyboards and homemade electronics, Hubba Bubba is spacey, bleepy bloopy pop. The album's out February 25.

There's an interstellar theme here -- the album cover is the cockpit of a spaceship (complete with Brian Eno portrait) -- and you can check out "Eggs at Night," plus the artwork and tracklist, below.

Not unlistenable, but pretty dull. A disappointment from a dude who put a pic of Eno at his weirdest on the cover of the album. Maybe the rest of it is OK

And the award for the best use of a loud/soft dynamic in a rock song goes to...Thee Oh Sees!

While there were a few bands in the 60's (Midniters) with "Thee" as their handle, I imagine most bands post-80's choose "Thee" in reference to Billy Childish. Billy Chyldish has named a few of his bands "Thee...". Thee Headcoats, Thee Mighty Caesars, Thee Milkshakes...
