Oneida - Littlefield
May 17, 2019 - Brooklyn

Brooklyn's psych-mainstay Oneida, live in concert at Littlefield, with James Brandon Lewis and Val Jeanty Duo + Reg Bloor. Bring the noise. Doors open at 8:00PM. Show starts at 9:00PM. Standing room only. No band has been so praised for such a wide range of music over the last ten years than Brooklyn's Oneida. Nobody has come close to matching their output of dazzlingly creative, uncategorizable music. Psychedelia, minimalism, maximalism, one-step, infinitewave, blah blah blah blah... it's all there, all the time. Romance is the latest studio album by Brooklyn psych/noise/kraut godfathers Oneida. It was recorded all over the place and it is a powerful, sweeping gesture that evokes the storied history of 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.

Thank you all and we hope to see you soon! Tamaryn has been crafting gothic dreampop and soaring shoegaze records for the better part of a decade.

It's simultaneously her hardest, darkest record and still somehow her most accessible, landing squarely in the sweet spot between between pop and post-punk.
