You may remember that back in March Oh Sees shared video of a full-band live rehearsal for their "next album." It looks like that album is here -- it's titled Protean Threat and will be out September 18 via Castle Face. It also marks yet another spelling change for the band, they're now going by Osees. The band's statement on the album describes it as "the apogee of scuzz—punk anthem amulets for the ears and heart, a battery for one’s core." You can read the whole thing below.
The first single, which was played at that rehearsal, is "Dreary Nonsense," which finds Osees heading back into garage punk territory after forays into proggy hard rock and jazz, and there's a little skronky proto-punk vibe here too. Listen and check out the album art and tracklist below.
