restless energy harnessed into exquisitely crafted jams, with an emphasis on the pensive & the paranoid in turns.

'drop' was recorded in a banana-ripening warehouse (no joke) with hair-farming studio warlock chris woodhouse playing drums; it’s also graced with the presence of talented gurus mikal cronin, greer mcgettrick & casafis adding horns & vocals. the result pushes the familiar polarities of the group farther outward than ever before. opener ‘penetrating eye’ might be the heaviest oh sees song yet, ‘transparent world’ & ‘put some reverb on my brother’ foam with seasick fuzz, & yet the ballads, like the harpsichorded ‘king’s nose’ & the lush & stately closer ‘the lens,’ extend their oeuvre into mellotronic, far-out pop with delicacy & grace. ‘john dwyer & pals get back to doing what they do best: making ear-splitting garage rock that feels like the greatest idea anyone’s ever had’ 4/5 – the skinny.
