Pre­teen Weaponry

Ja­jaguwar Pre­teen Weaponry is the ninth album of free-wheel­ing grooves from Oneida, a Brook­lyn act who spe­cialise in out-there sounds that usu­ally come with the “prog” la­bel at­tached. The album is the first part of a tril­ogy called Thank Your Par­ents – trilo­gies and con­cepts be­ing an­other in­di­ca­tion of Oneida’s fond­ness for a bit of prog. The album con­sists of a 39-minute track di­vided into three parts, so get­ting day­time ra­dio play is not a press­ing con­cern for this lot. If you stick with it, you’ll find that Oneida pile away like there’s no to­mor­row, wig­ging out with nods and winks to their Krautrock, new-wave and acid-rock fore­fa­thers. How­ever, there’s lit­tle here that you haven’t ex­pe­ri­enced or en­coun­tered be­fore. And, while there’s noth­ing wrong with re­vis­it­ing sounds and scenes, One­dia’s in­abil­ity to con­trib­ute any­thing new or orig­i­nal lets them down and makes Pre­teen Weaponry a bit of a trial. www.mys­ onei­darocks
