Song of the Day - August 11, 2006

Approximately one month ago, Oneida released Happy New Year, which saw the band move to a more psychedelic sound. However, there are still a wide variety of influences and styles apparent throughout the record. "The Adversary" and "Up With People" both have a harder edge; "Up With People" being the harder of the two tunes, actually has an industrial beat. Whereas, songs such as "Reckoning" and "The Misfit" tend towards the psychedelic. "Reckoning" is more of the freak-folk nature, while "The Misfit" has Philip Glass inspired keyboards during the last half of the song and a slight Pink Floyd feel to the song, especially the intro. My favorite track is "Distress," a song that feels it could have come from some medieval monastery due to the simple chanting of the song. Click here to listen.
