If there’s one thing San Franciscan garage pioneers Thee Oh Sees are not short of, it’s albums. Since 2007, the band has churned out LP after LP, documenting the band’s evolution from a psychedelic noise experiment to a well-rounded garage rock band.
I Need Seed, the first single off the band’s latest release, Castlemania, is another stylistic step forward as frontman John Dwyer adopts a sonically cleaner approach. Nonetheless, at its core, it’s still very much an embodiment of the defining sound of Thee Oh Sees. It’s a fantastic video, too.
