Thee Oh Sees - "Lupine Dominus" (VIDEO)
It sort of misses the point to identify any one track as a standout on a Thee Oh Sees record, since they all own, but "Lupine Dominus", off of this year's Putrifiers II, is a major league jam. To these ears, anyway. The seering groove surges along like a train with somewhere to go. The vocals here are beyond inviting, and make it all too easy to take the plunge. Put simply, this song is awesome.
All things considered, the video is a little quirky. For starters, it takes place in a strip joint. However, it quickly deviates from any sort of predictable path. Dig on the track all you like, but once you're finished be sure to rush out to your local record store and buy the damn album. I implore you.
