Experimental rockers Oneida are currently gearing up to release Live at Secret Project Robot, a live album recorded at the Bushwick art gallery in 2015. Above, you can listen to 'Saturday', taken from the new release, streaming ahead of the live album's release.

During the time of this show, the band included Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo and Yo La Tengo’s James McNew amongst its lineup. The recording above captures the band playing the track in an intimate space, the track's driving drums populated by manipulated, feedback-soaked guitars, knocking up a very listenable racket in the process.

The band performed this show as a seven-piece outfit with The Secret Project Robot art gallery having been Oneida's base of a decade up to that point. Live At Secret Project Robot is due out on April 22 via Safety Meeting Records.
