Notable one being Orc, A Weird Exits, Floating Coffin, Smote Reverser, and their most recent album Face Stabber. Oh Sees are masters of unconventional rifts, and heavy, trippy vocals, however sometimes featuring tracks that are long and filled with rich ambient sound.
Mr. Elevator, formerly known as Mr. Elevator and the Brain Hotel, in comparison with Oh Sees, ditched guitars in favor of keyboards, synthesizers, and Organs. Leader of the band Tomas Dolas, actually has ties with The Oh Sees, helming the keyboard for the band. Mr. Elevator features a likeness to light, and funky 60s psychedelic sound featured in their debut album, Nico and her Psychedelic Subconscious; Later graduating to a softer more emotional sound with their latest album, Goodbye, Blue Sky.
These bands share a history of experimental, and reference to the psychedelic sounds of before, while keeping things fresh. Be sure to see them live to see how well they complement each other!
