    Just how prolific are Thee Oh Sees? By the end of August, the John Dwyer led outfit will have released two new records, and one of those is only the first entry in a series. We’re talking in particular about Live in San Francisco, part one of a pummeling live collection recorded over three nights at San Francisco’s The Chapel. Due out July 1st from Dwyer’s own Castle Face Records, the LP/DVD not only allows fans to bring home the band’s thrashing live show, it actually previews their next studio effort, August 12th’s A Weird Exits.

    Track 10 on Live in San Francisco is actually a live version of track five on A Weird Exits, a throbbing, Dungeons & Dragons-referencing cut known as “Gelatinous Cube”. Dwyer’s frantic guitars roll and crash like the waves of some sort of psychedelic nightmare, a ride you’re terrified to be on but too thrilled by to want to stop. For many listeners, this is the first time you’ve been able to hear Thee Oh Sees’ new might as Dwyer is backed by dual drummers Ryan Moutinho and Dan Rincon and the furious low end of bassist Tim Hellman; considering how massive it all sounds on this live recording, one can only anticipate the pure power of its studio version.

    Take a listen to “Gelatinous Cube” below.
