Album Review: Thee Oh Sees' "Warm Slime" Is Spastic Garage Rock Glory

Warm Slime (In The Red) is a spastic garage rock free-for-all documenting the Thee Oh Sees‘ customary absurd lyrical imagery and noisy guitar flailings with the occasional regal ego. And if you thought any of those things were actually bad, think again, music lover. Their new album is a welcome return to the spastic garage rock destructiveness after last year’s well-intentioned but poorly executed Dog Poison.

Rockin’ The Isle: Local Independents Come Out For Haiti

Hafta love a band that pens tunes on compelling subjects ala “Graveyard Drug Party” and “Adult Acid.” And so it goes with Thee Oh Sees. They like to keep things interesting. The group headline the Stand with Haiti benefit at Cafe du Nord Tuesday, Feb. 2 -- surely the most critic- and hipster-friendly concert yet to gather funds for the very excellent cause of getting relief to the earthquake-ravaged country.

Listen Up: Blonde Redhead, Ozomatli and Brazilian Girls Play This Week

Get your audible obsession fix this week at any number of showstoppers all around the Bay Area.

Blonde Redhead & Thee Oh Sees, The Independent, 7/14-15: With a semi-cult following, this Big Apple-based trio has been making waves in the underground indie scenes for years. They’ve had a somewhat tumultuous past with a rotating door of cast members, but the solid state they’re in now makes them an absolute must-see. Local favorites, Thee Oh Sees are set to open. Ps – both of the shows are sold out, so we wish you the best of luck scalping outside or hounding Craigslist sellers.

This Week's Top Concerts: The Power Female Edition

They say that it’s a male dominated world, but with power females like these, we beg to differ. Check out these women dominating the stages this week (and a few men too):

Neko Case, The Warfield, 6/9-6/10: Just in case you can’t make it to tonight’s performance, an encore is lined up for tomorrow, so there’s really no excuses. Miss Case gained fame by working on the New Pornographer’s debut album, but she’s held her ground and is proving to be one of indie’s new leading ladies with her fiercely independent and artistic voice. She’s definitely someone to keep your eye on these days.
