Listen to Oneida’s live Glasslands set with James McNew on bass

Post Author:

Oneida, lauded rock experimentalists and seventeen-year NYC underground vets, just played a show at Glasslands on July 17, and the good folks over at nyctaper recorded the group’s sprawling four song, fifty-five minute set. As the post notes, classifying an Oneida show as a “set” is a little faulty, as the songs meld into each other through improvisational fluidity–but that doesn’t stop nyctaper from predicting that these four tracks could be reconstructed to fit onto a future studio offering.

Yo La Tengo bassist James McNew helmed the four stringer on this outing, holding down the swirling noise and adding to it at the same time.
