Boomkat Product Review:
Whether it's a knowing nod to a certain California-based teen soap or not, The Oh Sees undoubtedly make the kind of music that would happily soundtrack a moment of sunshine heart-break; as they coax pop melodies into submissive relations with all manner of soft-hearted and serendipitous sounds. Described by the band as '"goo-rock", 'The Cool Death Of Island Raiders' is actually the second album from ex-Coachwhips front man John Dwyer - a band whose rough and tumble garage sound was a precursor to the hordes who have since followed. Yet whilst this would suggest a low-slung batch of Jack Daniels solipsism, The Oh Sees are in fact melody wrapped trinkets that bring the kind of sounds you'd expect from prime-time Donovan then mix in dollops of shoegaze atmospherics and unfiltered California vitamin-C... Opening through the charmingly entitled 'The Guilded C*nt', The Oh Sees bring a real sense of calm to their music with the Kevin Shields vs. desert rock of 'The Dumb Drums' rubbing up nicely against the echo-chamber calm of 'Cool Deaths' and its chiming caverns. Hushed, mushed and luxuriously plush, 'The Cool Death Of Island Raiders' is like a sunny afternoon spent by the pool... with a shark in it.
