  I'm-a shoot you both if you don't say what's on your mind

Oneida: "The Eiger"
Oneida: "High Life"
R. Kelly: "Trapped in the Closet (2 of 5)"

UPDATE: Okay, no Go-Betweens today. I left the damn disc at home. We might postpone the whole thing for another week or two. We'll keep you posted.

Later today we start our Go-Betweens week. Before we get into that, though, I’d like to make up for last week’s lack of posts by offering up this quick update. I'm sure both of you are pissed at our profligacy.

Oneida’s new album The Wedding came out a couple of weeks ago, and it might be their most consistently excellent piece of work. The big news is the frequent usage of a string section, but instead of getting all vainglorious in a foolhardy pursuit of musical growth, the band continues to refine and explore the two or three things they do well. The orchestration on here sounds like Oneida playing different instruments, and not at all reminiscent of your typical unnecessary schmaltzification process. These aren’t Spector’s strings on “Let It Be”, or that weepy, overly earnest horseshit heard on later Sebadoh records. This is the same Oneida, with a slightly new palette.

And secondly, via Hillary, once again, comes the second installment of R. Kelly’s epic song-cycle “Trapped In the Closet”. If you missed part one, here it is. This one’s ending is pretty predictable, but even though it’s not nearly as effective of a cliffhanger as the first part’s conclusion, I remain desperately anxious to hear the next part.
