Sixteen years in, NYC’s guitar/drums/bass/organ answer to the future of modern composition is still vaporizing the midnight oil. From the repetitive rampaging of “Sheets of Easter” to A List of the Burning Mountains‘ deep-dive space skronk to the cybernetic grooves of, say, “Antibiotics,” noisers, anti-pop heads, world-music freaks, and the deranged can all find something special in Oneida’s bonkers kitchen-sink fusion. If their mammoth discography isn’t enough—and for some it isn’t—the band’s members have amassed a wealth of mind-bending side projects including Man Forever, Knyfe Hyts, and People of the North.
