Garage-rock titans Osees are the latest to get an exclusive Fuzz Club Edition in partnership with Levitation
We're extremely pumped to reveal our exclusive Fuzz Club Editions of the new Levitation Sessions from garage-rock titans OSEES, which are now available to pre-order here! Volume 1 was recorded back in September 2020 and captures a blistering set out in the California desert. The Fuzz Club Edition of the resulting LP comes on a coloured splatter vinyl with a bonus encore 7" of the final track from the show, 'Block of Ice', pressed on milky-clear vinyl.
Osees bandleader John Dwyer said of Volume 1 (available to stream in full below): "During this particularly hard year (2020), it was a pleasure to work with our good friends over at Levitation and Pappy and Harriet's to reach out to some of our fans, if only for a fleeting hour. This is the proper plastic that came from that evening. We are trying to keep some of our favorite haunts, dives, glorious old venues and bars open through this triail, as it's obvious the lizards that make up the current administration have no real interest in extending any realistic help to struggling businesses. Take care, be well and keep your eyes on the horizon."
For Volume 2, OSEES returned from the depths of a cavernous Los Angeles factory. The performance features a fresh batch of tracks spanning over a decade of the band's expansive discography with a handful of never-before-played-live tunes and some new surprises. The show is presented in its entirety here, pressed on a glorious Double 12" vinyl LP (the Fuzz Club Edition of which comes on coloured swirl effect vinyl.)
On Vol 2, Dwyer said: OSEES pine for our fans and friends out there in the world, so we have come together for another stream with the mighty Levitation. I personally got stoned and stuck my face into the muck of our past catalog to bob for some dusty tumescent gems. There will be some oldies, and some moldies and some surprises along the way. I’m quite happy with how this one turned out. Shot in an insane old factory warehouse in Los Angeles (it looks like a fight scene set from Point Blank or the John Wick trilogy :) If you had told me a year ago we'd be doing these streams now I would have thought you were crazy, but, egg on my face, and here we are. I’m so glad to have this little thing to share a moment with y’all until we can meet face to face on the field of battle again. Mastered by the Guru JJ Golden, it will hopefully turn some frowns inside out and upside down....grossssss.” You can watch the band rip through 'The Dream' and 'Snickersnee' as part of the Volume 2 performance below.
