Aside from the fact that you can guarantee that they’ll release plenty of music, or the fact that their name will change again at some point, Oh Sees seem to always have something coming out. Now with a new double album Face Stabber due in August, the band has released a new single “Henchlock” that not only expands their sound, but it has a run time over twenty minutes.
With heavy instrumentation and nods towards jazz and free form psych, the song has plenty of moving parts that help set the stage for the song’s run time. Ironically, the song doesn’t really deter your ears, and it stays interesting the whole time. One of the band’s more experimental and meandering songs, it proves very quickly that vinyl is the canvas for this band, and they’re just painting random pieces of beauty as often as they want.
“Henchlock” can be streamed wherever you stream music, it can be purchased in all digital outlets and Face Stabber can be pre-ordered directly from Castle Face Records. Oh Sees are on tour beginning August 23 at Cabaret Vert Festival in Charleville, France until October 31 at Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles, CA. The band’s complete tour schedule can be found here.
