Drop is the fifteenth studio album by American psychedelic rock band Thee Oh Sees, released on April 19, 2014 on Castle Face Records. Primarily a collaboration between core member John Dwyer and regular collaborator Chris Woodhouse, the album is the ninth to be released under the name, Thee Oh Sees. The album was released following initial plans for Thee Oh Sees to take "a well deserved break," and was recorded during a "transitional period" for the band.
On past LPs Thee Oh Sees have struggled to translate their overwhelming live power into memorable recordings – every album has a fistful of crackers interspersed with a whole lot of flailing about.
But as per recent Thee Oh Sees tradition, the album comes to a peaceful balladic conclusion with the unabashedly Beatlesque The Lens, though in this case, it feels less like a strategic antidote to the anarchy that preceded it than a natural manifestation of Drop’s stress-free spirit. And yet, just when the song introduces a baroque harpsichord flourish grafted from the mid-section of In My Life, it comes to a swift conclusion, as if the band were embarrassed by this uncharacteristic indulgence

Oscillating garage rock weirdness from West Coast psychonau. here’s always been something restless about Thee Oh Sees. It’s in the shimmering psychedelic music they have been recording since 2008’s The Master’s Bedroom Is Worth Spending A Night In. It’s in the speed with which they put out new releases, 13 in six years including lives and comps, plus numerous EPs and seven inches. And it’s there in spades on Drop, the first album since ringmaster John Dwyer announced he was taking a break, a widely misinterpreted hiatus that lasted, oh, a couple of months, while Dwyer moved to LA and effectively became a solo artist, having left the band behind in SF. This is a band that refuses to settle down.
Thee Oh Sees have been blending indie crunch rock and psychedelic rock better than anyone else since 2006. Their consistency is due to them releasing an album almost every year since then. The ability to produce as much music in such a short amount of time allows their creative flow to carry on from album to album. Drop is more of a continuation of Floating Coffin, but the sound and depth of their music make Drop sort of the pinnacle of their creative career. 70. Thee Oh Sees come back and release an album of all the good things they've done in the past.
