First taste of forthcoming album by Oneida's Kid Millions and Bobby Matador

Thrill Jockey will be releasing Sub Contra, the third album by Kid Millions and Bobby Matador's Oneida side project People Of The North, next month - have a listen to LP opener 'Drama Class' below:

As you'd expect from the pairing, it's an unrelenting proposition, with a ground layer of shredding distortion (the guitar equivalent to the high-pressure snare raps of Millions' Man Forever work) which gets met by some exploratory, polygonal rhythmic stutterings, both eventually subsumed by a viscerally noisy assault by Matador's synth arsenal.

Oneida bandmates also Shahin Motia and Barry London also take up guest spots on the record, which is released on June 11.
