John Dwyer and his long-running garage-rock band are inarguably consistent. Years pass, members come and go, names change (until recently, the group was Thee Oh Sees), and Dwyer releases a new album or two each year, no small feat considering his incessant touring. To wit: latest effort Orc is a typically Oh Sees-ian collection of rollicking psych-punk, and it will be followed later this year by another record, the band’s 20th in 20 years, under its original name OCS. Luckily for fans, Dwyer and company remain an exemplary live rock band, no matter what they call themselves.
