People die by telling themselves fibs

Oneida, Happy New Year (Jagjaguwar 2006)
"Up With People" seems to be most ppl's fave on the new longplayer from Brooklyn's Oneida but I'm feeling the August morning haze of "The Misfit" and some of the album's quieter numbers. Happy New Year doesn't feel as huge as The Wedding (there's no "Did I Die") but it's another log on the fire for one of the more shape-shifting and inventive rock bands out there. Out on Jagjaguwar / Brah Records.
