Brooklyn psych/noise/kraut godfathers Oneida are set to play a run of UK and European dates from mid March, all starting at London's Corsica Studios on the 15th March. Full details are below, all shows are to support their recent album 'A List Of The Burning Mountains' as released end of 2012 on Jagjaguwar.
'A List Of The Burning Mountains' is the latest studio album by Oneida and was recorded at the Ocropolis, the band's longtime recording home. It is a powerful, sweeping gesture that evokes the storied history of that space and Oneida's dedication to a diehard independent music and art community in fashion-driven Brooklyn. This is true underground sound from a band that has released twelve albums in fifteen years and has been hailed by the New York Times, NPR, Time Out NY and the Village Voice as an original, essential voice in the history of New York's towering experimental music lineage.
Brutal and gorgeous, churning and soothing, 'A List Of The Burning Mountains' is less a traditional album than a tiny sip from an endlessly roiling sea. Oneida is known for long-form improvisatory performances and collaborations; this release, with its drunken-master drumming, howling guitar and scouring drones, serves as a concentrated blast from a wholly unique band known for 12-hour live, improvised performances and multi-day recording sessions.
Oneida also released 'A List Of The Burning Mountains' film in November 2012, which is a full-album multi-artist video project to accompany the release of the new LP. A number of artists created visual scores to sections of the album with the intention of creating a seamless whole that can flow with the whole record.
Films for 'Side 1' and 'Side 2' encompass all audio from 'A List Of The Burning Mountains' LP and were presented exclusively by Noisey.com. Directors for the sections include SR Palm, robotdeathcult, Matt Marlin, Brock Monroe, Mike Bonello, Barry London, Tony Balko, Andrew Deutsch & Maya Hayuk, and Christy Edwards.
