Thee Oh Sees

Putrifiers II (In The Red)

Soft folk sounds, jangling acoustic guitars, sweet falsetto harmonies, Krautrock leanings and what has come to be Thee Oh Sees’ signature sinister psych overtone saturate Putrifiers II. Demented feedback screeches jockey for position amongst la-la-la choruses, making for the darkest sounding ’60s sounds you’ve ever heard. Cohesiveness is achieved through the overall weirdness of the album, even as tracks play it fast and loose with genres. Stand out track “Lupine Dominus” is gorgeous and terrifying---as a whole, the album would make a great new soundtrack to Valerie and Her Week of Wonders: beautiful, haunting and altogether disturbing.
