Nothingness Is Not A Curse

Let me put it this way – I’m seeing Oneida in a few months, and Asheville’s Nest Egg is scheduled to open for them…I’ve got no issue with similar bands on the same bill, but this one is WAY on the nose. If you walked into the club not already knowing which band was which, you’d probably be totally confused (pro tip: Nest Egg are the young dudes, Oneida are middle-aged dad types). They do the whole psyche-krautrock thing – repetitive, driving, mesmerizing. You could also compare to Wooden Shjips/Moon Duo if you were so inclined. Nest Egg does a damn good job of it, similarity to other artists be damned…if you’re good at what you do and the songs you perform are a fun listen, I’ll ride with it regardless.
