Thee Oh Sees have put out a fun video for “Minotaur” a track off their of forthcoming album. A fucking great track, to be specific. I’ll be looking forward to April 16 when Floating Coffin comes out. John Dwyer, the San Francisco madman behind the band, always pushes these records in weird and unexpected places, for garage-rock or any music.
Speaking of Dwyer, he’s one of the curators for this year’s Sled Island Festival. The Calgary music blowout has announced a few headliners already — Jesus and Mary Chain? Divine Fits? Joel Plaskett Emergency? Yes please — but, knowing Dwyer, he’ll have interesting choices further down the bill. Judging by his curation skills with his label, Castle Face Records, at least.
