Every winter, Chicago’s Empty Bottle throws its “Music Frozen Dancing” outdoor festival and this year was a little more frozen than usual as it happened during a snowstorm on Saturday (2/17). Oh Sees, Detroit synthwave duo ADULT. and Brooklyn’s B Boys didn’t let the weather faze them, however, and neither did the crowd….

The Fashionably Late Top 66 of 2017: Oh Sees/OCS

It’s been a hell of a year. 2017 was exhausting, stressful, and at times just plain terrifying. But for all the mess that’s happened over the past 12 months, and there’s certainly been so much, there’s also been a lot of good going on in the world. From a musical standpoint, for instance, 2017 was rather exceptional. There were so many glorious new sounds to take in.

I’ve put together my list of favorites from the year that was, a touch fashionably late as always. Once again, I’ve decided to eschew a ranking system and instead give you an alphabetical ...

Video of The Day: Oh Sees

Video of The Day: Oh Sees

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

I watched The Forbidden Planet earlier this week, so space is definitely the place as far as my mind is concerned. Which is rather apropos, seeing how Oh Sees went all sorts of outer space for the video for “Drowned Beast,” another excellent piece of sci-fi psych tangle. Coupled with the animation and direction of Dr. D Foothead, it’s another shooting star from John ...

Video of The Day #361: Oh Sees

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

Reminiscent of a particular type of 1980s video game featuring knights and quests and hordes of grotesque creatures, the video for “Nite Expo” is a fantastical, kooky ride. Animated and directed by Alex Theodoropulos, the misadventures of our green-eyed protagonist are in tune with the technicolor psych noise of the wonderful Oh Sees. John Dwyer may have dropped the “Thee” from the project’s ...
