Track of the Day: Thee Oh Sees - "Devil Again"

1 comment

Do you know who have sneakily become one of the better record labels? Take a bunch of guesses, but I'll bet none of them include Williams Street. That’s right, the weird and twisted people behind Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim line of programming have come on as something of masterful curators in the music field. From proper album releases (like Killer Mike’s R.A.P. Music) to terrific remix mixtapes (ATL RMX) to yearly MP3 single series, Williams Street Records have hit a hot streak. Even if you disagree with some of their more nontraditional methods - most notably the fact that they rely almost exclusively on digital methods to distribute their wares - this bizarre union is worth keeping an eye on. 

For their next trick, Williams Street gathers a bunch of garage rock slackers for Garage Swim, a collection of fifteen previously unreleased tracks. Check out Thee Oh Sees’ contribution "Devil Again," a ripping track that borrows a bit more from traditional pop than they might like to admit. Garage Swim is due May 6th and is sponsored by the refreshing taste of Dr. Pepper.
