Castlemania is a studio album by the American garage rock band Thee Oh Sees, the fifth album released by the band under the name "Thee Oh Sees" and their eleventh overall. It was released on May 20, 2011, by In The Red Records. It was the first of two studio albums to be made by the band in 2011, the other being Carrion Crawler/The Dream, which was released in November. It was recorded by a skeleton lineup of John Dwyer and Brigid Dawson along with some guest musicians.

One of the hallmarks of Thee Oh Sees body of work is that every recording they've made sounds as if it was created while the musicians were under the influence of a variety of hallucinogens, so it tells listeners practically nothing to say that the group's seventh album, Castlemania, sounds pretty trippy. However, while the average Oh Sees album is a heavy exercise in psychedelic murk, Castlemania sounds surprisingly light and pop-oriented, if only by this band's standards

Thee oh sees are such a good thing. I saw them for the 5th time last night and competely flipped the FUCK out in the pit. Like usual. UGH. They shred SO HARD. Thee Oh Sees - I Need Seed (Castlemania). Also, one of the raddest album covers ever. John Dwyer is a badass. thee oh sees castlemania i need seed john dwyer coachwhips.

Over the past decade, San Francisco's Thee Oh Sees have morphed from a showcase for skronk-savant John Dwyer's sensitive side into the hardest working band in garage-rock. Their output is prolific and their live show combustible. But on Castlemania, Dwyer opts to go it alone. With the exception of live-band regular Brigid Dawson- who, along with the Sandwitches' Heidi Alexander, contributes some backing vocals- the shaggy-banged songwriter handles almost all of the instruments. Drummer Mike Shoun and Guitarist Petey Dammit aren't out of the picture permanently.

Thee Oh Sees ‎– Castlemania. Label: In The Red Recordings ‎– ITR 208. Format: Vinyl, LP, 45 RPM, Album Vinyl, LP, 45 RPM, Single Sided, Album, Etched. The album has 45 RPM printed on it, but it "actually" plays at 33 1/3 (to make it sound like the CD version). Kind of like how the Carrion Crawler/The Dream "EP" is a 12-inch LP. Classic Dwyer.

The album has 45 RPM printed on it, but it "actually" plays at 33 1/3 (to make it sound like the CD version).Kind of like how the Carrion Crawler/The Dream "EP" is a 12-inch LP.Classic Dwyer.

I just bought a new sealed copy of this pressing at that major online retailer. It goes without saying that the music is awesome and In the Red is a great label. However, there are definitely some idiosyncrasies. As already noted, Sides A and B play at 33 1/3 despite the label on Side B saying "45 rpm", just like the photos above. Side C plays and says 45. Side D is an etching. Also, both my discs are significantly bowled, although they do play. A clamp helps. Finally, the Side B label is about to peel off. Maybe it wasn't stored properly in a warehouse for the last several years?

Does anyone have any clue how many were pressed? Thanks!

Burisi
How many were misprinted? I just realized that mine is and i've been confused this entire time.

Xtreem
mine spins at 33 1/3 rpm too with 45 rpm labels

Nicanagy
Is your copy really playing at 33 1/3 rpm? Most are playing at 45 rpm, all three sides. So they made a 33 1/3 rpm version but used the 45 rpm labels? Or maybe it's not a misprint but rather a mispressing at the wrong speed?

Twentyfirstfinger
My version plays at 33 1/2...

Tetaian
WayTrane So does mine. I think we have the misprinted one. Does anyone actually have one that plays in 45 rpm? Yep, mine is 45rpm! Terrific album at any speed :)

Globus
So does mine. I think we have the misprinted one. Does anyone actually have one that plays in 45 rpm?

Vudomuro
Dude, I just got mine and it is labeled 45, but clearly plays at 33. I'm confused.

Dagdalas
I got my copy secondhand, so it could have come from a show... That's neat!

Framokay
Anyone else have a copy that plays at 33 1/3 as opposed to the label that says 45 rpm? What's up with that??

Celore
Yeah, copy/paste that!

Akir
I received a copy in the mail from In The Red with this issue and submitted it: Thee Oh Sees - Castlemania I held off on using Misprint initially due to the fact that the guidelines say there needs to be a corrected version that's released before that tag is used, but if the label called it a misprint, I'd say its valid! Could you paste the email text in the submission history, waters02?

Jube
In the red emailed and said its a misprint with the current pressing- it's 33 1/3.

Golkree
Yeah I just discovered that yesterday. Did you get it at a show because I have one that I got from a record store and it plays 45rpm. I got the misprint from a show.

Side c have more crackles, certainly a fault of pressing.
