"I'm still looking for that happy medium," he says. "You have to try both ends of the spectrum before you find the middle."

That medium will be tested again later this year, as Thee Oh Sees already have a full album's worth of material ready for the studio. From the sound of things, these tunes could take Dwyer fans on yet more stylistic turns. The unrecorded material apparently takes heavy influence from Swedish experimental act Parson Sound. "We're getting into the vein of more open-ended stuff," Dwyer says of Thee Oh Sees. "Everyone's getting more accustomed to riding one note for 10 minutes." One new song is nearly 15 minutes long, and Dwyer says it could take up an entire side of a record. "It'll be our 'In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida,'" he jokes.

Dywer remains more San Francisco's Iron Chef than Iron Butterfly, however, battling against himself to churn out new tunes to feed all those garage heads hungry for his ample musical helpings.
