Oneida, live at Primavera Sound Festival 2009, Barcelona

3592101697_40ae4e2a8f WFMU dropped anchor on the shores of the Mediterranean last month at the invitation of Barcelona's stunning Primavera Sound Festival, where we joined 80,000 of our new best friends in an ecstatic celebration of music, good livin', good eatin', and futball victory.  We're still a bit dazzled and sorting the spoils, but it looks like we had a fabulous radio weekend, broadcasting more than 20 excellent band sets and meeting many new friends from all over the world.  WFMU has added streaming archives of many of the sets, and the FMA is hosting a bunch of mp3s for download as well. It fills my breast with great honor to include a fresh batch of Barcelona beats from our hometown faves and longtime bruhs Oneida!

Check out "Sheets of Easter" below, then make haste to Oneida's FMA artist page or the Primavera Sound Festival collection to make this feast your very own.

This was Oneida in a beautiful and psychotic dream: surrounded by gigantic weird paranoia-inducing ads for sunglasses, with the skyline of Barcelona behind the band and the Mediterranean Sea behind the audience, plus a killer light show.  This was a one-off edition of the band, as core member Fat Bobby couldn't make it.  In his temporary stead was founding member Papa Crazee, who some years back amicably departed Oneida to form the equally excellent Oakley Hall.  A truly glorious evening.
