OSEES: "Funeral Solution"

I'm admittedly way too smitten with OSEES to provide objective critique of any work this band composes and rips through. When new records are announced from John Dwyer and ever-rotating-Co., I immediately order one. Such was the case with their upcoming new album, A Foul Form, which had a rainbow splatter variant available for a hot second. I wasn't quick enough to grab one of those, but I was able to secure a copy on black. Those are now gone as well. If you're a CD fan, A Foul Form is still available at Castle Face. You can also purchase a digital copy from Bandcamp. Otherwise, looks like you're SOL until represses or misplaced copies surface online. Or, if you want to hand over your hard-earned loot to some opportunistic flipper at Discogs

"Funeral Solution" is the lead single: throat-grating vocal set to an exuberant garage-stomping bounce. The video is appropriately and visually aggro. 

A Foul Form is releasing 8/12. Fucking pumped.

Today, OSEES have announced their forthcoming album,
A Foul Form, due August 12 via Castle Face Records. To kick off the album cycle, they're shared the record's first single, "Funeral Solution," alongside an accompanying music video by Logan Feser.

Speaking on the forthcoming record, certified OSEES fan, Black Flag's Henry Rollins, wrote:

"Osees don’t seem to mutate or morph so much as remain extraordinarily open to what moves them to do next and capable of getting music done that’s consistently good. What motivated the band to turn loose this hyper-concentrated slightly less than 22 minute burst of meteor density somewhat punkazoidal music? When it comes to the Osees, that’s at best a mediocre inquiry as they just do the next thing, genre, prevailing tastes or whatever influence might guide a lesser unit are not even a consideration. A Foul Form is a cool pivot from their 2020 studio efforts Metamorphosed, Panther Rotate and Protean Threat. A Foul Form vigorously shakes the Oseesetch a sketch clear so whatever comes next (which will probably be sooner than later) will likely be something completely different yet again. As far as a potential inspirational indicator, you might notice the final track on A Foul Form is a cover of Rudimentary Peni’s Sacrifice, which can be found on their Farce 7” released in 1982. A fitting way to blow out this rad slice."

OSEES recently announced a Summer UK/EU Tour, on top of their Fall 2022 North American Tour with Bronze and Automatic, beginning in September and continuing through October. They just announced a show in Honolulu, taking place on August 26 — tickets are on sale now.
