Oneida have become one of the more The Eiger - Oneida - The Wedding groups in experimental music in the mids, since they're so unfailingly curious Aktiv[E all their Jurisdictions - Cripple Bastards - Desperately Insensitive. Catatonic psych-rock, heavy blues dirge, post-punk, garage, the anxious blipping of a vintage keyboard -- it's all fair territory for them.
Hanoi Jane, Kid Millionsand Bobby Matador drop some inventive pop with "You're Drifting" and "High Life," two songs with real melodies that still manage the unlikely instrumentation and the misdirection you've come to expect. A violin punctuates an exalted ending chorus, blurry organs wail, and -- of course -- someone pisses in Prospect Park.
Both songs are like more lucid versions of those Eric Gaffney contributions on Sebadoh 's old albums. But that's only one facet of Wedding. Speaking of violins, the album begins with "Eiger," where the Swiss mountaintop becomes a place for proclamations to pretty German girls and a full chamber quartet. None of these tangents sound forced, or made for the sake of being screwy.
Instead The Eiger - Oneida - The Wedding twisty vines off a central root. So when Oneida opens the nearly eight-minute "Beginning Is Nigh" with a light saber warble and some steadily building organ, you know you're in for a ride.
Unfortunately, you're not -- there's a guy mumbling, and a guitar making some noise, but nothing really happens. That's okay, though. Oneida come right back with "August Morning Haze," which brings the strings back to match wits with the liquid tones of a Rhodes and some more impressive vocal harmonies.
