Shuffling, streamlined (after the first two tunes at least) psych ditties from the turn of the century by New York’s Oneida, now reissued by original label Jagjaguwar. Impeccable production and a splendid use of feedback harmonics gave this stuff quite an edge - and has kept it from ageing much and all.
- Vinyl Double LP (JAG048LP)
Oneida follow up their Thank Your Parents album triptych by getting even deeper and stranger. A List Of The Burning Mountains is two side-long slabs of Oneida-brand improvisation, relying on the group’s deep and long relationships to make music that sounds like no-one else. This music feels uncertain, halting, explorative. Very interesting vibes, available on LP only.
The heads have been waiting a few years for this moment, but here it is… a full new Oneida album! Romance is a considerable proposition, with eleven tracks over two LPs (or one CD), each exploring a different facet for the astonishing beast that is the O. So much going on in here, you are really going to have to dig in for yourself. On Joyful Noise.
- Vinyl Double LP (JNR246LP)
Some years in the making, here is the collaboration between one of New York’s finest guitar-centric experimental composers Rhys Chatham and the glorious Oneida. With What’s Your Sign?, both parties mesh beautifully together into a swirl of repetitive super-sound: a joy for Oneida and Chatham fans alike. Out on Northern Spy.
People of the North
More joyful noise from the ever-more sprawling activities of the Oneida family. People Of The North is the side project of that band’s Bobby Matador and drum powerhouse Kid Millions, and The Caul finds them diving once more into heavy minimal jams of immense power. Vinyl only, through a digital download code is included. On Thrill Jockey.
Yes that’s right, what we have here is an EP on which Brooklyn’s endlessly thrilling Oneida cover This Heat, one of the most remarkable bands yet seen. Incredible scenes. As well as their take on ‘S.P.Q.R’, they also cover Chrome over the course of 16 minutes, and round things off with a droney original. Positions is on Rocket Recordings, limited to 300 vinyl copies.
The second part of the epic Thank Your Parents triptych embarked upon by Brooklyn’s finest band, Oneida. Rated O is itself a triple album, and it's one of the most remarkable collections of modern times, spanning experimental repeato-rock, deep psych, weird noise electronics and all sorts of other magical jams. Never underestimate Oneida. Triple CD on Secretly Canadian.
The first part of the epic Thank Your Parents triptych of Brooklyn’s finest band, Oneida. Preteen Weaponry is a long jam in three parts that goes deep into the heart of the band’s magic formula: Kid Millions’ infinitely engaging drums circle around the organs and guitars at the heart of this densely-built beast. CD on Jagjaguwar.
