Osees (formerly known as Oh Sees, Thee Oh Sees, etc.) have had a pretty busy year, releasing two new albums, Metamorphosed and Protean Threat. And on December 11, they’re following that up with a remix album, Panther Rotate (it’s an anagram of Protean Threat!). The album features “remixes, field recordings, and sonic experiments using all sounds generated by the him and crackle of the desert farm.” And today they’ve shared a new track from the album, “Gong Experiment,” a hypnotic, percussive krautrock exercise with lots of mysterious, dubby, psychedelic elements. It’s a more laid-back, very cool variation on the Osees sound, and you can hear the new track in full below.
Osees are also performing a live stream from the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur on December 19. It’s a ticketed live stream, with merch bundles available as well. Find more information and tickets here, and see the band’s “Voice in the Mirror” performance below as well.
