Oh Sees announce double LP ‘Face Stabber,’ share 21-minute “Henchlock”

oh-sees

Oh Sees are back with a new album titled Face Stabber — it’s a double and will be out August 15 via Castle Face. (Preorder.) Their press releases are always entertaining and here’s a little about the album from it:

Hey there, human kids, lift your face out of the feed trough and pluck that feculence from your ears. Hark! A sonar blip from beneath the pile of bodies—the latest Oh Sees, Face Stabber! Boop, blip, ughhh….people churning like a boiling swamp. Man, this din is nauseating. The screen flickers for the first time this year with a transmission from two months in the future: “the internet has deemed guitar music dead and you are free to do whatever the fuck you like ….long live the new flesh!”
This album is Soundcloud hip-hop reversed, a far flung nemesis of contemporary country and flaccid algorithmic pop-barf. No songs about money or love are floating in the ether. Just memories, echoes, foggy blurs, blip-blop goes the scope, heavy funk, dystopia-punk canons, long jams, bloated solos dribbling down your caved-in chest.

You can get a big taste via the 21-minute psych-jazz-odyssey that is Face Stabber‘s closing track, “Henchlock.” Listen to that below.

You can catch Oh Sees on tour this fall with Prettiest Eyes, including a three-night run at Brooklyn’s Warsaw in October (tickets). Updated dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Oh Sees are auctioning off the cockpit set from the video for “Anthemic Aggressor” (from Smote Reverser) with proceeds going to Elizabeth House in Pasadena. The set was built by John Dwyer and includes the “stoner puppets” and “all the blinky lights.” Place your bid and watch the “Anthemic Aggressor” video below.
