12 O'Clock Track: "Penetrating Eye" is a Sabbathy good-bye from Thee Oh Sees

Remember how bummed everyone was when Thee Oh Sees, the best garage rock band of our time, called it a day in December? Looks like before they totally say good-bye, they have one final LP left in them. Drop, coming out on John Dwyer's Castle Face Records, is due out on April 19, Record Store Day, and today's 12 O'Clock Track is the record's first song. Called "Penetrating Eye," it has the classic psychy, garagey Thee Oh Sees sound but adds a little bit of a Black Sabbath vibe. It's groovy and stoney, but still catchy and spirited. It sounds like these guys are going to go out on a high note—as if we'd ever expect anything less from them.
