Oneida, Rated O

Ah, wait — one more from Brooklyn, albeit a slightly less overexposed enterprise. Oneida is made up of distinguished-looking and exhaustingly prolific noise-rock dudes who here offer a three-CD set (!) that serves as the second act of a planned trilogy (!!). As such, the album is a delightfully sprawling mess of atonal freak-folk screamfests, clattering dub zone-outs and, occasionally, fantastically badass riff-rockers. As for the latter, head straight for disc two's "Ghost in the Room," a muscular and precise headbanger, that, upon reflection, only increases in power and resonance when you wade through the hour-plus of inspired aural flotsam on either side of it.

Micachu & the Shapes

Jewellery

Best emotionally resonant use of a vacuum cleaner in 2009. Probably ever.
