Earlier this year, John Dwyer, one of indie music’s stalwarts surprised fans by disbanding his genre-defining group The Oh Sees. What genre, you ask? Garage rock, of course. Though, admittedly, by the time last year’s Floating Coffin – the group’s undeniable apex in this humble writer’s opinion – the group had shifted, taking in a healthy dose of Krautrock and letting bandleader Dwyer concentrate on Space Echo–fed guitar while Brigid Dawson’s vocals took center stage.
