Drummer Pat joined in 2005. Bassist Greg Yancey and Singer Guitarist Sam Arnold started the band earlier in the century. WE SOUND: Like Zappa, but more poppy and heavy. Like the Pixies, but more shreddy and jazzy. Like King Crimson, but more concise and absurd.
Like Primus but more melodic. Like Steely Dan but more insane and metal. Like They Might be Giants but heavier and mathier. Like Madonna.
Exactly like Madonna. NEW ALBUM: Safety First, Opposite Day's 3rd album came out in 2007. Featuring a meaner, louder, wetter, smarter, and more better sound, this one will keep us out of the studio for a few months at least. It's got Pat Kennedy on it instead of our old drummer. It's got a lot of mega-hyper songs, thick art-pop nuggets, and some textural explorations.
Don't worry, there are also some unifying themes sprinkled throughout the eclectic sprawl. Silliness, heaviness, vague sincerity, cleverness all make an appearance too. Song highlights include the jazz-broiled math-emo scream of "Elephant in a Pharmacy," the oblong picnic anthem "Brilliant Animals," the rollercoaster bureaucracy of "Paperwork," the densely constructed discomfort of "Aztec Princess" and the outerspace-arena-thrash-ballad "Like an Alien".
