Thee Oh Sees - ‘Floating Coffin’ + Root of All Evil
Ingredients: 2 ounces bourbon, 1/2 ounce Cointreau, 3/8 ounce Fernet Branca, 1/4 ounce Maraschino liqueur, 2 dashes orange bitters, orange peel for garnish.
Mixing Instructions: Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with orange peel and serve.
Notes: The ability to bottle up a Molotov cocktail of emotion and energy, light it on fire and fling it unflinchingly at the listener is what makes the San Francisco garage rockers, Thee Oh Sees, a magnetic listen. Like their Bay Area brother Ty Segall, they exude a rawness that makes you wish you were in a band, or at their show, or a groupie, or pretty much anything that involved getting to stick your head next to a stack of amps pumping out their biting guitar riffs, deep/dark bass lines and thundering drums. An album filled with head-boppers, slower psychedelic beauties and noise, hypnotic noise - wait until you’re bored with the limpness of everything else you’re listening to and give this a spin with a S.O.B. of a cocktail.
