New Music Tuesday: Onesie – Umpteenth [Album]

 

First of all, I have to kick this thing off by stating that I have been listening to Onesie’s brilliant second album, Umpteenth, almost on a loop now for weeks. I had every hope to get something up here about it, damn near a month ago. Unfortunately, the time I was spending listening to this absolute gem of an album happened to be in while I was too busy playing on-line class-clown, and struggled to find the time to write about something I actually cared about. But, fuck it, here I am. And if there is something I truly care about, it’s letting you all know just how great Umpteenth is, and why you need to check it out ASAP, as it is now currently available.

As I stated earlier, I have listened to this album so many times that if Ben Haberland walked into my house at this very moment and told me that my cats were disgusting and should be put down….I would eventually be a bit hurt, but I would at first be starstruck. Having insults hurdled at me from the man who has sung the words of “Final Days Of Nineteen” to me for all this time is in my home! And full disclosure, I don’t believe he would actually ever do this.

 

In all seriousness Folks, the genre-bending group that is Onesie is hand’s down one of the those multi-faceted acts we are (or at least should) be looking for when it comes to listening experiences. There are so many different sounds on display throughout Umpteenth, yet it all blends ever so nicely to create a magical sound that is unique to them and them alone and it is a damn good one. With power-pop elements that clash perfectly with a big guitar sound, the entire track list of this album is destined to blow you away. But what I respect the most about Onesie and what they have done here is their obvious lack of “give a shit” in trying to fit into any sort standardized sound. And with that, I firmly believe that Onesie has created one of the best albums of 2019 thus far.

 

Umpteenth is available now from Dadstache Records wherever you get your music. And check out other releases available on the band’s Bandcamp page.
