Oneida -- Anthem of the Moon

Before their current incarnation as a dull (and therefore more popular) indie sensation, Oneida made some truly interesting and varied music. I'm speaking roughly of the period that includes Each One Teach One, Enemy Hogs, Come on Everybody Let's Rock, the Steel Rod ep and this one here, perhaps my favorite of the bunch. There's an exuberant energy that's wholly absent from their later stuff. I think perhaps the personnel has changed since these days, but I can't be bothered to check it out. Anyway, this is from 2001, and it kicks major butt.
