The now renamed prolific Californian band Thee Oh Sees pulls way back on the prog-metal influences of recent efforts, trading much of that for dynamic, staccato avant-punk in the first half and easing into delicious psych rock in the second. Highlights: “Dreary Nonsense,” “If I Had My Way,” “Gong of Catastrophe” “In the swirling and undulant warm mud of jettisoned reels of magnetic tape, blurps up the fog of reinvention. Every night I would parley with my pilots and run and rerun the recordings. Right up until the moment sleep slips its veil over eyes and ears and you drift back without a sound. Protean Threat dream haze becomes Panther Rotate in the other dimension.

A companion LP of remixes, field recordings, and sonic experiments using all sounds generated by the him and crackle of the desert farm. “A second version of our Protean Threat if you will, but barely conspicuous in its relation. Forward, never straight! Sunrise, sunset. Two lives connected by a cosmic thread, One for your feet and one for your head. For fans of Thee Oh Sees, Oh Sees, OCS, The Oh Sees, Osees…etc etc etcetcetc…be well.” —John Dwyer
