Zoom -MUSIC PICK OF THE WEEK-
Coachwhips
Hands on the Controls
Listening to the 2002 debut from lo-fi noisemakers Coachwhips in 2013 is pretty rewarding, especially considering one can hear the musical progression of frontman John Dwyer (formally of Pink and Brown, now of Thee Oh Sees). Over the course of 15 years, Dwyer has fashioned himself into a kind of garage-punk version of Robert Pollard, churning out so much music that it’s difficult to determine where the unedited demos begin and the final results end.

Carrion Crawler/The Dream
7 out of 10
Is there any stopping Thee Oh See’s endless stream of spastic garage punk? Carrion Crawler/The Dream is the San Francisco four-piece’s second LP of 2011, a sort of messy sister album to Castlemania, released earlier this year. On that previous record, founder/mastermind John Dwyer and his bandmates threw out short bursts of 60’s-inspired psychedelic folk and weird sing-along anthems. Here they seem to return to the jam tendencies that informed 2010’s Warm Slime, and consequently sprawl with reckless abandon.

John Dwyer has been one of the hardest working musicians of the past decade, churning out dozens of albums in various bands and side-projects. Tagged mostly in the underground/lo-fi/garage rock scene, he made his mark first with the short-lived performance art noise-punk band Pink and Brown in 1997, and then later with Coachwhips and the Hospitals in the mid 2000’s. His penchant for forming different bands, relentlessly playing shows, and recording an insane amount of music, released or not, has made him something of an icon to younger musicians currently blossoming within the scene that he largely pioneered.
