After a year and half of making East London a sunnier, happier, better-looking place, the mighty FAIR OHS (Matt Flag - bass, Joe Ryan – drums and Eddy Frankel - vocals and guitar) are ready to release their debut album,EVERYTHING IS DANCING on 1st June via their own label, Honey High Records. The album will be released on vinyl and digital formats only, because they’re the kind of new-age free-love sorta band, the digital version is being made available FREE (!) to THE WHOLE WORLD for the first month after release. Not only that but, the vinyl will come with a bonus download of an exclusive 2 track acoustic EP. 
The single will be accompanied by a rather shiny and fairly ridiculous, video made by the rather amazing Dave Ma (Foals, Delphic, loads of other fun stuff).

Woods is a two-headed dog asleep on the porch and a butterfly on the windowsill... a Janus, a Gemini and a screen door. The sun won’t fade and the earworms will not leave, but the jams go on too long for the girl in the 
back who wonders if her friends are at another bar. Still, the ballads always make her cry. Woods is up there relaying the Woods-feel: Folk-rock, fuzz, tambourines, tapes and raw lunch pulled straight from the yard. Pop songs and other things: Sun and Shade.”—Glenn Donaldson
 
Over the past few years Woods have established themselves as an anomaly in a world of freaks. They were an odd proposition even in the outré company of vocalist/guitarist/label owner Jeremy Earl’s Woodsist roster, perpetually out of time, committed to songsmanship in an age of noise, drone and improvisation, to extended soloing, oblique instrumentals and the usurping use of tapes and F/X in an age of dead-end singer-songwriters.

San Francisco’s incredibly prolific Thee Oh Sees are back with a collection of original tracks plus a smattering of covers with their new full-length Castlemania.

While the group’s previous releases on In The RedHelp and Warm Slime, showcase their amped-up, reverb-drenched garage-psych pummel, John Dwyer and co. take a more low- key approach with Castlemania, Dwyer himself describing it as more “summery and poppy”. On many of the tracks, electric guitars are jettisoned for acoustic, and the normally echo-laden vocals are a bit clearer.
 
The Result? Happy pop melodiessweet and somber tunespsychedelic moves galore where cover versions of The Creation and the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, and at least one garage stomper rub elbows on Thee Oh Sees’ brand of “sunshine pop”. Perfectly suited to RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW with the return of sunny blue skies and blossoming flowers.
