Song of the Day - December 27, 2005

Oneida is a Brooklyn band who remind me of Yes, Can, and even Foghat. They combine progressive, psychedelic, and blues rock influences, sometimes favoring one style over the other. I am particularly fond of their track "Lavender," which starts out with psychedelic funeral tinged keyboards, only to progress to a spaced out Scottish sounding march. I know it is not bagpipes, but the keyboards are faintly reminiscent of those drone producing pipes. The intro is quite long, before the Yes-like vocals enter. The repetitive nature of the music has an almost hypnotic effect. Click here to listen.
