2015 release; previously available exclusively from the Rocket Recordings mailorder service. Brooklyn's peerless experimental rock iconoclasts Oneida have been delighting and perplexing the wider world since 1997, informed by the art-orientated mindset of krautrock, the chutzpah of post-punk, and the radical ethos of minimalism, yet never falling prey to cliché or homage. Here, they use the rhythmically intense mantras of This Heat's "S.P.Q.R." and Chrome's "All Data Lost" as jumping-off points for searing blasts of kaleidoscopic invention and white-hot intensity that destroy boundaries and defy categorization at every turn, adding their own sinister drone-based mantra "Under Whose Sword" for good measure.
