      Joshua Sharp reports:
      Equal parts booming and hypnotic, Brooklyn based Oneida are the rare band
      that places duplicate emphasis on both halves of the drone-rock
      designation. Their sound is thick, loud, and almost impenetrable, paying
      nod to heavy psych progenitors like Black Sabbath while maintaining a sound
      distinctly their own. The band recently released their sixth full-length
      recording, Secret Wars, on Jagjaguwar, and are soon to embark on a meaty
      European tour in support of the record.

      The band has also reportedly composed the soundtrack for Speedo, a
      documentary about New Jersey and Long Island demolition derbies. Speedo can
      be seen at this year's SXSW festival, and around most public swimming
      facilities in Italy.

      Finally, though Oneida were reported to be recording a split single with
      the Constantines back in August, nothing has been heard of that venture
      since the Constantines' drummer suffered injuries during the recording
      process. However, the Constantines are to be joining Oneida on a handful of
      the following dates; according to the band's blog, more dates may be
      confirmed in the weeks to come. Tour schedule thus far:
