SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Thee Oh Sees, Festsaal Kreuzberg, 9pm
A quick investigation of Thee Oh Sees reveals that the San Francisco-based experimental art-punk band is surprisingly prolific: in spite of changing names several times in the past decade – from OCS to The OhSees to the current incarnation – Thee Oh Sees have not ceased to release at least one record for every year.
Most recent is this year’s album,Floating Coffin, the group’s twelfth studio release to date and its first self-released project since 2008. Although described as slightly darker in sound, the album still boasts the signature lo-fi, reverb-filled garage rock sound that Thee Oh Sees have become known for. Natalye Childress
