Part 2: From Handsome Furs to Oneida

Slipped Discs continues with hip-hop royalty, a genre-busting classical quartet, the future of soul music, an Americana demigod and many more. All records that missed our top 60 list last year.

Oneida: Absolute II

Those curious about mood music that upends one's emotions rather than calming them down may welcome this shambling trip into interstellar breakdown, rather than overdrive.

Oneida: Preteen Weaponry

Brooklyn trio contains multitudes, this time letting them out in droning, jammy Krautrock form.
