Thee Oh Sees - Carrion Crawler/The Dream

Hallo, my review of the new Oh Sees non-LP has been posted elsewhere; I say non-LP because it's actually a double-EP, which more bands ought to do if they're worried about the record slipping by track six. The band also headlined a marvelous, costume-ridddled show in Los Angeles a couple days before Halloween - it's funny to think that just three years ago, they were opening for the Mae Shi at a tiny venue like the Smell. Surely John Dwyer will finally become famous one of these days...

Purchase Carrion Crawler/The Dream (you won't regret it!)

Jesse Morris

Here's a fellow who used to busk in San Francisco and recently passed away. He was also featured in the San Francisco Gate less than a year ago over his work with country band the Man Cougars. He did a mean Johnny Cash imitation and had begun recording this album several years ago but never finished it. Proceeds from the sales of his unfinished country-punk record will go toward his memorial service in December; obviously, you can stream or download it for free, but you may as well help out with costs and put in the mere five bucks to do so. Obit in the SF Weekly can be found here.
