THEE OH SEES - The Master's Bedroom Is Worth Spending A Night In LP
Thee Oh Sees deliver fifteen slices of fuzzed-out, druggy garage-rock on The Master's Bedroom is Worth Spending a Night In, without a piece of filler in sight. Choruses of ghostly vocals echo their way around the snappy percussion and dense layers of dirty, jagged guitar riffs, touching reference points as diverse as Southern-Rock, punk, The B-52s and The Mamas and the Papas. The songs here are about 3/4 riotous rockers and 1/4 hazy, trippy detours, and the album is sequenced quite perfectly to space the latter out amongst the former in a very pleasing manner. It's also the sort of album so consistently great that picking highlights becomes a near-impossible task. The Master's Bedroom... is a shining example of top-shelf garage-rock, not to mention a deserving winner for funniest album title of the year.
