Oh Sees Release New Track And it might melt your brain

what youth recommends oh sees animated violence

Oh Sees, formerly known as Thee Oh Sees, have leaked a new single from their upcoming album Orc, out August 25th on John Dwyer’s own Castle Face Records. The track, “Animated Violence,” is heavy, loaded, super proto inspired, and just might melt your brain. So press play, and protect your neck.

And if that wasn’t enough to get you stoked on Oh Sees, Castle Face is offering “14 Dwyer-hand-painted test pressings” for auction on eBay, with all proceeds benefitting the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles. From Castle Face co-captain Matt Jones:

We here at Castle Face are committed to making positive change in our community, and the homelessness epidemic in downtown Los Angeles is a tragic and complex issue. Homeless women in particular are an especially vulnerable population and we are happy to help out in any way that we can to assist in permanent solutions for them and our community. This auction features test pressings of the last smattering of John Dwyer’s projects with the label – Coachwhips, Oh Sees, and Damaged Bug are all represented – and feature one of a kind artwork on the jackets by the man himself, rendered in black and glow in the dark ink.”
