6. Oneida - Rated O
"Taking their cues from the kosmische experiments of the 70s, Oneida flex their muscles, spread their wings and take flight into uncharted territory. Delivering the very definition of "epic", the 20-minute journey that is 'Folk Wisdom' engages, hypnotises and delivers. Refusing to bow down or relent, the effect can be disorientating but, crucially, never boring. This is precisely what music in the 21st century should be sounding like, the aural equivalent of the silver suits and food pills that we should be wearing and consuming by now." Julian Marszalek
