ONESIE: Umpteenth: LP

Aug 01, 2019

I thought this was going to be a straight Built To Spill/Dinosaur Jr. type of college rock-worship band, but then it took more of a turn for Beatles-influenced psych-pop. Maybe there’s a lot of overlap there; I don’t know. A little too clever for my taste, personally—just a lot of puns and quips and cute references propping the lyrics up, and the singer usually sounds like he’s doing a voice—but Onesie know exactly what they’re doing and seem to be doing it pretty well. I’m sorry, the guitar is just so wanky throughout this whole thing. Put it in the arty, smarty-pants indie rock bin for the nostalgic grad students who are looking for that. –Indiana Laub (Dadstache, [email protected],
