Thee Oh Sees - "Carrion Crawler"

Woefully late on this one, and for that a thousand apologies I beg. However, my metaphorical plate is quite full these days. My physical plate remains empty.
Thee Oh Sees are releasing another new record this year. The running title is Carrion Crawler/The Dream, and it arrives November 15th. While Castlemania dropped a few months back, this is a new record and should be treated as such. Needless to say, beyond stoked about this. Tracklist below, and a leadoff joint as well. Album art above, in case any further confirmation was needed that this album will slay.

Dum Dum Girls - "Bedroom Eyes"

Only in Dreams arrives September 27th via Sub Pop, and another track has become available for download and dig. This is being described as the first proper single off the record, and as the last song written before the band hunkered down in their "LA practice space for two weeks before recording." Dee Dee recalls reading a poem by Dante Gabriel Rossetti "as I saw trails and tripped out a bit..." and then follows that recollection with:"Love within the context of insomnia and separation? Kinda my thing."

In case you missed it, there's another track floating around the internets. It's called "Coming Down". Check it out below.

Again, Only in Dreams arrives September 27th via Sub Pop. Pre-order here.

Summer is inching to a close, but it's not officially over. With that in mind, my joint of the summer in moving picture form.
