John Dwyer has a surprise… While everyone eagerly anticipates
the next Oh Sees record, he’s been working tirelessly
in his synth laboratory, hand-crafting a followup to
last year’s neon-noir Damaged Bug debut—one that shakes
up the snow globe considerably.
If Hubba Bubba was a brush with a robotic exoskeleton
on deep-space patrol, Cold Hot Plumbs visits the alien
world that sent it into the cosmos. Lush, textural and psychedelic,
the songs breathe with a otherworldly sadness
and heart. Barbed, sophisticated arrangements flower in
every direction. The vintage-perfect sound palette would
be window dressing if not for the songs themselves: fresh,
vital, and above all catchier than the flu. Cold Hot Plumbs
is a strange, beautiful, and oddly infectious addition to Dwyer’s
oeuvre, and not one to be missed.
