I was right. The new THEE OH SEES album (they’re calling it an EP) is spotty and hard to listen to without your hand hovering near the skip button – like all of their records. A total “singles band” for our time.

This track, and “Flood’s New Light” & the mellow “Goodnight Baby” would have made for a helluva REAL 3-song EP. Overall this one’s got some psych and even Kraut-y touches, along with a dollop of pop and the usual garage wackiness. Their fatal flaw continues to be lack of self-editing. One nice EP-length release every 18 months might be just about right.
