Oneida - Preteen Weaponry

There are only a handful of bands that I can think of off the top of my head that have the ability to fearlessly create whatever the fuck they want with each new release, regardless of expectations. For better or worse Oneida has been one of those bands for almost a decade now. I'll be honest, these guys have put out some things that I absolutely hate, but I have never lost an ounce of respect for them. Their latest psychedelic punk rock opus is the most daring and expansive record I've come across so far in 2008. Oneida doesn't want to be your friend, they want to challenge your patience, and reward you by rocking your fucking face off. Latter day Boredoms is the best comparison I can come up with, but even that is doing a bit of an injustice to a really original release.
