SONG OF THE DAY Thee Oh Sees – The Dream


For the cover alone I was truly sold on Thee Oh Sees 2011 record, Carrion Crawler/The Dream.  Released by In the Red Records the album’s title was an amalgamation of tracks one and six on the LP, with Carrion Crawer a title derived from a the Dungeons & Dragons role playing games…a Carrion Crawler being a centipede-like monster in case you were wondering!

Petey Dammit stated that the album was originally based around The Dream, but after the band created the song Carrion Crawler, John Dwyer decided to add its name to the album’s title.

The Dream thunders along fuelled by lashings of pure garage rock madness! It’s relentless energy is like an insatiable monster with heavy arms of bass and winding psych guitar tentacles.  It’s a beast that consumes all in its path and if all dreams were like this you’d wake up exhausted!..but this would be the kind of exhilarated exhaustion you’d fall asleep and welcome anytime! Check it out above.
