Thee Oh Sees - An Odd Entrances (Deluxe)
From the same misty mountaintop tape spool as August’s A
Weird Exits, Thee Oh Sees bring the companion album An
Delving more towards the contemplative than the faceskinning
aspects of its predecessor, this sister album is a
cosmic exercise en plein aire with John Dwyer and company
double-drum shuffling, lounging with cellos, following
a flute around the groove, and spooling a few Grimm-dark
lullabies along the way. Lurking in the grass are a snake or
two, like the celestial facing instrumental buzz of “Unwrap
The Fiend Pt. 1.”…But for the most part this is a relatively
hushed affair, a morning rather than evening listen.
The band plans on donating half their profits from the
first pressing to Elizabeth House, a local charity in Pasadena
that specifically helps homeless women with children
get back on their feet.
