SONIC YOUTH Anagrama (SYR) cdep 8.98
Completely wonderful four-song instrumental ep self-released by the band on their new label, aptly named Sonic Youth Records. Windy saw them play underneath the Brooklyn Bridge a few weeks ago. I'm not even much of a fan anymore, but this performance blew me away. No vocals, no verse-chorus-verse, it was all lovely melodic tension building up and up with glorious climaxes. And the drumming is all CH-ka ch-ka CH-ka ch-ka, nothing too bombastic, very subdued. Excellent direction for Sonic Youth to go, we say. Transparent red vinyl is extremely limited. Strongly recommended!

album cover SONIC YOUTH Corporate Ghost - The Videos 1990-2002 (Geffen) dvd 18.98
The title of this Sonic Youth dvd may say "The Videos", but it's so much more than a simple video compilation! This compiles all of their videos from 1990-2002, after they made the jump to the majors. The liner notes suggest a "pre-sellout" video compilation will follow, we're psyched to see that too. But this here DVD is chock full of all your favorites: "Dirty Boots", "Kool Thing", "Sugar Kane", "Youth Against Facism", "Bull In The Heather" and loads more. All with band and/or director commentaries. Bonus goodies include something called Sonic Spiel featuring Mike Watt, Jason Lee, Kathleen Hanna, Todd Hynes, Richard Kern and a bunch of other sonic pals. Also a Spike Jonze montage of his favortie SY memories, a fan letter film, and some secret extras. Pretty damn cool.

SONIC YOUTH Daydream Nation (Geffen) cd 11.98
THIS IS CURRENTLY OUT OF PRINT OR OTHERWISE UNAVAILABLE TO US AT THE MOMENT, SO PLEASE DO NOT ORDER IT. SORRY.
Still boggles the mind that this underground New York art rock band somehow were permitted into the mainstream... y'know the big leagues, but it's that mammoth wealth of resources that allows the release of special reissue editions such as this one.
So, what's your fave Sonic Youth album? If you took a poll around here, chances are you'd hear the names of a select few of their early albums come up repeatedly - Bad Moon Rising, Evol, Goo, Sister maybe - but none may be quite as beloved as 1988's Daydream Nation. Simply put, in pretty much every aspect - album art, title, song sequence and the songs themselves - Sonic Youth nails it. It's a superbly realized art rock album that balances melodicism and dissonance, traditional song structures and soundscapes.
FYI, though, there's an expanded deluxe edition also available, with an extra disc of goodies, see elsewhere on our site for that review.

album cover SONIC YOUTH Dirty (Geffen) 2cd 28.00
This has actually been out for a while now and even though we were asleep at the switch, figured a bunch of you would still be psyched. However, of all the Sonic Youth records that could deserve the deluxe multi-disc reissue, very few of us would have chosen Dirty. How about Daydream Nation? Or even Goo? I guess it does make sense since Dirty was their commercial breakthrough record or whatever, so ultimately it really depends on where you hold Dirty in your personal SY pantheon. But this reissue is super nice, fully tricked out with a fancy double digipak, a slip cover, tons of photos and a big booklet. Contains the original album as well as 8 b-sides and 12 rehearsal recordings, 11 of which have never been released until now! Good stuff. Now how about a deluxe reissue of Sister or Evol?!?

album cover SONIC YOUTH Goo (Geffen) cd 11.98
The year punk broke? Depends on who you ask and if you care. But the documentary sporting that title centers around Sonic Youth and their tour after their first major label record came out, Goo, in 1990. In many ways this was the record that would shape the course of the indie-rock revolution of the 1990's. As it was more often then not Sonic Youth using their new found major label clout to help other bands get more exposure or even deals of their own (i.e. Dinosaur Jr, Mudhoney, Nirvana, etc.). Following up Daydream Nation must have been quite a daunting task and signing with a major label at that time was often the kiss of death for any self respecting band who had roots in the punk rock community. Yet somehow Sonic Youth found a way to forge a new road and rewrite all the rules. While Goo might be one of their more accessible albums it was by no means at all a sellout. SY had always had a pop element in their music and this record let them explore it much more deeply. While not their most critically acclaimed record, we've always had a huge soft spot for Goo, in fact it's Andee's favorite SY record ever! It was the record where SY got to let down their hair and have some fun. There is a playfulness and charisma to Goo that still kicks our ass. And odds are you probably already know and love a bunch of these Goo-tunes.
Aw Goo, a record that would help Sonic Youth reach the masses as it gave them a wider audience than previous albums. Goo launched a decade that would see so many bands flourish taking much inspiration from Sonic Youth. Everyone from Pavement to Sleater-Kinney, Unwound to Blonde Redhead. Years and years later, Goo still sounds so rocking and charming. One of the few bands who have made great records over the course of three decades!

album cover SONIC YOUTH Goo - Deluxe Edition (Geffen) 2cd 31.00
With the deluxe reissue and recent performance of Daydream Nation here in town just a week ago Sonic Youth has been on our minds quite a bit. So we figured we would list the deluxe version of their major-label debut Goo which came out a while back too.....

And odds are you probably already know and love a bunch of these Goo-tunes. Of all the deluxe SY reissues so far this is the one whose bonus material is the most rewarding. The proper album is on one disc followed by 5 tracks of out-takes and b-sides (including a Neon-Boys cover) and the second disc has some totally great 8-track demos as well as a killer cover of the Beach Boys' "I Know There Is An Answer" a good decade before it became all the rage to love The Beach Boys again. Aw Goo, a record that would help Sonic Youth reach the masses as it gave them a wider audience than previous albums. Goo launched a decade that would see so many bands flourish taking much inspiration from Sonic Youth. Everyone from Pavement to Sleater-Kinney, Unwound to Blonde Redhead.

SONIC YOUTH Goodbye 20th Century (SYR) 2cd 16.98
Sonic Youth and the usual suspects (cohorts Willy Winant, Jim O'Rourke, Christian Marclay, and others) team up to pay tribute to a variety of avant-garde 20th Century composers, performing works by the likes of Steve Reich, Cornelius Cardew, John Cage, Yoko Ono, James Tenney, Pauline Oliveros (who specifically wrote a piece for this), Takehisa Kosugi, George Maciunas, Christian Wolff and more. Yes, this is totally pretentious but the music ain't bad at all, lots of bowing, grating, droning, scraping, banging, screaming, etc. The cd version includes a Quicktime video of the band happily hammering nails into the keys of piano (a Fluxus conceptual piece by Maciunas). As a Yoko Ono fan, though, I am a bit miffed that the best SY could do was have Kim and Thurston's kid Coco cover her "Voice Piece For Soprano" (which means, scream for twelve seconds) - but I guess that's as much Ono's fault as theirs, in a way.

Hot off the heels of their most recent reissue campaign come 2 brand new songs from Sonic Youth. These were two of the last recordings made in the band's Murray Street studio. Two Thurston sung tracks that recall the darker and angrier side of SY. These won't be on the new album Rather Ripped coming out this summer, so SY enthusiasts you know you gotta get this.

album cover SONIC YOUTH Hits Are For Squares (Geffen) 2lp 30.00
Yes the cover art is pretty terrible! And yes this seems like a last contractual commitment to Geffen, but you can't deny what's in the grooves on this double vinyl. Some of the best Sonic Youth tracks of all time as chosen by some of their most famous fans. Folks like Gus Van Sant, Beck, Chloe Sevigny, Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, Dave Eggers, Mike Watt, Mike D, Catherine Keener, Michelle Williams, and more select the Sonic Youth track that speaks to them the most. So we get an awesome collection of their songs like "Bull In The Heather", "Tom Violence", "Expressway To Yr Skull", "Rain On Tin", "Shadow Of A Doubt", "100%" and more.
So yes all that is a fancy way of saying this is a best of Sonic Youth record of sorts. And full disclosure this was originally released by Starbucks on cd a few years back. hence the cover. But if you ignore all that, you get two slabs of wax full of amazing songs by one of the best bands of all time.

SONIC YOUTH Hold that Tiger (Goofin') cd 13.98
Sister-era glorious din, live from 1987, remastered by Wharton Tiers. Includes two Ramones songs in the encore. Excellent stuff, much better than 1000 Leaves.

Another chapter in SY's more out/free/improv adventures.

album cover SONIC YOUTH Murray Street (Geffen) cd 17.98
It's Sonic Youth's 21st year; this is their 16th album, the 2nd of a "proposed trilogy about the cultural history of lower Manhattan," and the 1st album to feature Jim O'Rourke on bass and the three guitar approach from Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, and Kim Gordon. All of those things tend to be much more interesting than what is hangin' out on "Murray Street." There's nothing wrong with this album, but it's really a very safe album with pleasant K Records guitar jangle, careful use of harmonics, unassuming rhythmic shuffles. Thurston tends to most of the singing, probably due to the fact that Kim's voice has aged horribly and sounds more gravelly / off key than ever (as her two songs attest). Even the presence of the monstrous sax duo of Borbetomagus on one track doesn't really lift this album out of mediocrity. I'd have to defer to Vice Magazine in a rare moment of clarity for them: "If confusion was next and this is the truth, tell me lies and let me live in the past."

SONIC YOUTH NYC Ghosts & Flowers (Geffen) cd 16.98
"NYC Ghosts & Flowers" finds Sonic Youth writing songs that are textural and rhythmic in their instrumentation, while placing a good deal of emphasis on the voice to carry the melodies of the songs. Superstar producer Jim O'Rourke did everything he could to make this record sound great - capturing all of the chiming resonance with a crystalline clarity, yet he couldn't get the band to write energy into the tracks, as Sonic Youth seemed determined to make a relatively quiet, mellow record. Nor could he stop Kim Gordon and Lee Ranaldo from singing really poorly. But said singing is kept to a minimum, making this a pretty great SY album, heavy on the melody with some spoken word pieces (that, amazingly, AREN'T annoying or cringe-inducing) and some great pop hooks. Fans of "Anagrama", volume 1 of Sonic Youth's selfreleased eps, will love this.

album cover SONIC YOUTH Oz '93 Tour Edition (Geffen Australia) cdep 12.98
THIS IS CURRENTLY OUT OF PRINT OR OTHERWISE UNAVAILABLE TO US AT THE MOMENT, SO PLEASE DO NOT ORDER IT. SORRY.
We managed to get a hold of a couple copies of this 5 track single which Sonic Youth produced in support of their 1993 Australia and New Zealand tour. The first cut 'Sugar Kane' was from their 1992 "Goo" album, while the rest of the tracks were unreleased, including a New York Dolls cover ('Personality Crisis') and an Alice Cooper cover ('It's My Body'). Definitely fits in with the same hypno-alt-rock that Sonic Youth had produced for "Goo" and "Experimental Jet Set, Trash, and No Star." Once these are gone, they will not be coming back.

album cover SONIC YOUTH Rather Ripped (Geffen) cd 15.98
Rather Ripped is a rather right-on title for this new SY album. Stripped down and back to basics, the core group of SY is back (Jim O'Rourke is out) and have made a totally great rock record. Poppy and catchy, but without losing their knack for soundscapery skree. Kim Gordon sounds more present and commanding then she has in a while (and a lot less whiney and singsongy), and Thurston is at his dreamiest and most laidback. This is the first SY record in ages to immediately seep into your soul after only a few listens. The great thing about SY is how they truly are A BAND. The sum of their parts comes together to create something WAY more fully realized then any of them could make on their own. Lee Ranaldo sings his song with so much intensity and his guitar sound remains totally, unmistakably his. Steve Shelley continues to keep the beat simple and solid, letting the rest of the band stray and wander. And of course Kim & Thurston are right up front effortlessly demonstrating that it's totally possible to age with dignity and passion while continuing to seriously rock. While it seems like some folks stopped listening to SY at some point in the past, "their last good record" (Daydream Nation, Dirty, etc.), the truth is, that unlike almost any other band around, Sonic Youth have been making really great records for the last quarter-century (totally check out recent under appreciated outings like Murray Street and Sonic Nurse). There is an ethos and undying spirit in their songs that continues to thrive and grow, change and mature, and it still gives us goose-bumps and has us throwing our fists into the air!

album cover SONIC YOUTH s/t (Geffen) cd 11.98
The greatest debut ep of all time? Maybe bold words but for some of us this is it. Sonic Youth's debut record came out in 1982 yet it sounds as relevant and amazing today as it ever has. It was on this record that they would help shape the course of interesting rock music for the next few decades. Raw and pulsating. Sensual and sexy. Creating tension and mood with a touch that never feels forced and always hits its mark. We could listen to this record over and over and over and in fact since we got this reissue we have been doing just that. For some weird reason when DGC reissued most of the Sonic Youth back catalog in 1995 they failed to reissue this. Why is beyond us but sometimes those corporate folks don't always know what's best. Luckily on this most recent batch of SY reissues this record has finally been given the attention it so totally deserves. Added to the original ep are a handful of live tracks from the early era of the band. Showing their most raw and no-wave inspired side with guts proudly worn on their sleeves. A record you got to have!
(The one down side, for those of you who had this on cassette, the tape version on the flipside, had the song info printed in reverse and the b side was the whole record played backwards! Would have been cool to include that on the reissue. Oh well...)

SONIC YOUTH Silver Session for Jason Knuth (SKR) cd 8.98
THIS IS CURRENTLY OUT OF PRINT OR OTHERWISE UNAVAILABLE TO US AT THE MOMENT, SO PLEASE DO NOT ORDER IT. SORRY.
Here's what the fine folks at Revolver have to say about this special release: "Recorded during the Thousand Leaves sessions when another band's incessant metallic-funk bled through the walls and interrupted SY's vocal overdubs. All of their guitars plugged into all of their amps, all turned to '11,' in a fight-back, feedback squealing eat-my-fuck reverie. Cheesy drum machines were added for some rhythmic fun, and the whole war was recorded, and then mixed and processed into eight tracks and thirty-one minutes of pulsing, soaring, sonic love. This CD is released as a benefit with all proceeds earned to go to the San Francisco Suicide Prevention Hotline, and is dedicated to longtime fan Jason 'Sonic' Knuth."

album cover SONIC YOUTH Simon Werner A Disparu (SYR) cd 13.98
As much as we dig pretty much all the Sonic Youth records, from Evol to Sister, Daydream Nation to Dirty, even Rather Ripped and Murray Street, we definitely find ourselves a little partial to the group's SYR releases, various records that for whatever reason the band opted to release themselves, the sound usually well removed from the indie noise pop of their proper records, and focusing on collaborations, live performances, odds and ends, and even soundtracks.
Simon Werner A Disparu is a collection of music SY recorded last year for the latest film by French director Fabrice Gobert. The group approached it like any musician scoring a film, watching the rushes and dailies, and crafting their songs and sounds into cues that fit the action on screen. But when it came time to release those recordings separate from the film, the band decided to return to the studio and rework the various cues into SY songs, creating altered versions and new compositions by taking those various cues and the numerous sonic fragments employed for the score, and weaving them together, layering them on top of each other, pulling them apart and reconfiguring them, essentially transforming the score into what is now less a soundtrack, and more an actual Sonic Youth record. And a pretty great one at that.
Performed by classic SY lineup: Thurston, Kim, Lee, and Steve (with longtime SY collaborator Jim O'Rourke on one track), from the first track it's immediately recognizable as Sonic Youth, dark and mesmerizingly droney, shuffling rhythms, percussive guitar scrape and crunch, that gives way to a woozy loping slightly gnarled groove, rife with spidery guitar melodies and swirling guitar ambience. "Alice Et Simon" is up next and is classic Sonic Youth, it's almost impossible to keep from constantly expecting Thurston's vocals to come in any second, but they never do, instead the band weave a lush bit of softly atonal jangle and crystalline chordal shimmer. And so it goes, a series of instrumental SY jams, all propulsive motorik drumming, low slung bass thrum, and a gorgeously cacophonic symphony of angular guitars, from warm melodies to grinding crunch, chiming chords over warped melodic squiggles, all wreathed in plenty of crackle and buzz and the occasional strange effects.
The final track finds the band joined by Jim O'Rourke for a sprawling 13 minute epic, droney and krauty, the sound shifting from shuffling jangle to super melodic slow build moodiness, to full bore psychedelic chaos to abstract ambient free noise exploration, culminating in a gorgeous droned out hypno-kraut outro.
So good! And makes us want to see the movie now too!

The group approached it like any musician scoring a film, watching the rushes and dailies, and crafting their songs and sounds into cues that fit the action on screen. But when it came time to release those recordings separate from the film, the band decided to return to the studio and rework the various cues into SY songs, creating altered versions and new compositions by taking those various cues and the numerous sonic fragments employed for the score, and weaving them together, layering them on top of each other, pulling them apart and reconfiguring them, essentially transforming the score into what is now less a soundtrack, and more an actual Sonic Youth record. And a pretty great one at that.
Performed by classic SY lineup: Thurston, Kim, Lee, and Steve (with longtime SY collaborator Jim O'Rourke on one track), from the first track it's immediately recognizable as Sonic Youth, dark and mesmerizingly droney, shuffling rhythms, percussive guitar scrape and crunch, that gives way to a woozy loping slightly gnarled groove, rife with spidery guitar melodies and swirling guitar ambience. "Alice Et Simon" is up next and is classic Sonic Youth, it's almost impossible to keep from constantly expecting Thurston's vocals to come in any second, but they never do, instead the band weave a lush bit of softly atonal jangle and crystalline chordal shimmer. And so it goes, a series of instrumental SY jams, all propulsive motorik drumming, low slung bass thrum, and a gorgeously cacophonic symphony of angular guitars, from warm melodies to grinding crunch, chiming chords over warped melodic squiggles, all wreathed in plenty of crackle and buzz and the occasional strange effects.
The final track finds the band joined by Jim O'Rourke for a sprawling 13 minute epic, droney and krauty, the sound shifting from shuffling jangle to super melodic slow build moodiness, to full bore psychedelic chaos to abstract ambient free noise exploration, culminating in a gorgeous droned out hypno-kraut outro.
So good! And makes us want to see the movie now too!

Second EP in the Youth's self-released series. This one is similar but a bit noisier than the first, with Kim's vocals featured on one piece. The word from Thurston is that SOME of the vinyl copies are on teal-colored vinyl, the rest are black.

album cover SONIC YOUTH Smart Bar Chicago 1985 (Goofin') cd 13.98
A rollicking group-authorized live artifact from arguably the best period of Sonic Youth's 30+ year history. This live set at Chicago's Smart Bar from 1985 made between the albums Bad Moon Rising and Evol was performed just as Steve Shelley joined the band and includes many tracks from the eps of that period such as Kill Yr Idols, Death Valley '69 and the Flower/Halloween single. Including songs from the self-titled ep and their debut Confusion is Sex, there's also a little known track called "Kat 'n' Hat" from a limited magazine release that serves as a twangy instrumental palette cleanser between the first half and the second half of the set. This is one of the best examples of SY's early live sound with lots of their most vital songs freeforming hard into noisy, beautifully dissonant sheets of sweaty adrenaline-fueled feedback and no-wave-ish industrial din. Vinyl version comes with download card. Nostalgic Youth!

album cover SONIC YOUTH Sonic Nurse (Geffen) lp 14.98
Now on vinyl...Okay it's going to be difficult, but we're going to try our best to avoid making medical puns. Have Sonic Youth fallen into a total stasis? Sure seems so. When you realize they're now nearing their quarter century mark, it's hard to fault them. Really their newest could be seen as the album on which the band found their comfort zone. Mature, mellow and without much of an edge. Forget all those press comparisons you might've read that this is like Wolf Eyes meets Fleetwood Mac. That's just bullshit ad-copy. For one thing, there isn't a hint of Wolf Eyes (besides Thurston Moore's inaudible personal fondness for them), and the only place with even a glimmer of the 'Mac is in "I Love You Golden Blue" where they blatantly snag the keyboard line from "Dreams". No, Sonic Nurse finds them being less the innovative trailblazers and more the elder statesmen with nothing to prove. They seem to no longer feel the need to issue new sonic challenges to the young punks, falling back instead on ideas they've explored quite a bit in the past (the recent past mind you). All of the Kim Gordon woozily sung songs follow the same pattern of the traditional SY song structure, dissolving into their tried'n'true noisy swell of guitar feedback. The melodic jangle of the last few albums is even more evident in the strummy pop and sing songy arrangements. So all you SY fans that simply want "more Sonic Youth", look no further. Very dreamy and pleasant and familiar. Those looking for something new might need to look elsewhere.

album cover SONIC YOUTH The Destroyed Room: B-Sides And Rarities (Geffen) cd 15.98
A totally fantastic collection of Sonic Youth b-sides and rarities spanning the years 1994-2003 with the bulk of the material coming from the Jim O'Rourke years of 2001-3. This is Sonic Youth at their most expansive. Except for three tracks, this is an all-instrumental Sonic Youth. Sprawling guitars, layers of sound, building tension, dreamy passages, all the elements that have made Sonic Youth one of the best bands of the last quarter century. In many ways this recalls some of their more experimental works released on their SYR imprint, while managing to still be very listenable and rewarding. It ends with an even longer version of their epic beauty "The Diamond Sea" which for many of us is the perfect snapshot of everything great about Sonic Youth. Once again, showing that their music is as relevant and timeless as ever!

album cover SONIC YOUTH The Eternal (Matador) cd 13.98
The Eternal is pretty much a perfect title for a Sonic Youth album. There is something so eternal about their presence in our cultural landscape that it's kind of impossible to think about living in a world without them. Since their last album, the rather great Rather Ripped, their contract with Geffen finally expired which thus finds this new album on indie Matador, but truth be told Sonic Youth were the rare band who really seemed to be able to make any kind of record they wanted while on a major anyway, and just used their own SYR imprint as the outlet for their more experimental and improv based leanings.
The Eternal is very similar in scope and feel to their last few outings, but even a bit more rocking and immediate. Almost sounds like they took the blueprints for Sonic Nurse and Rather Ripped and just pushed a big 'turbo' button. The true stars of the album are Lee Ranaldo and Kim Gordon, whose songs are the ones we find ourselves getting truly attached to. We really wish Ranaldo would make a song based solo album one of these days, as his contributions to Sonic Youth, especially in the more recent years, feel so urgent and insightful. We do wish The Eternal allowed itself to get a little more sprawled out and dreamy but still, as we listen to this album more and more the music and songs and sounds keep sinking deeper and deeper into our psyches, no surprise as one of the trademarks of Sonic Youth's legacy is how they make records that really do reveal themselves with repeated listens.
While people seem to always be so nostalgic when they think of Sonic Youth, it's important to remember that this is still very a much a band who is in the present and continuing to make great and moving music.

We here at Aquarius have not been boycotting the French. I myself have been making an effort to drink nothing but Evian and Champagne while eating baguettes covered in brie and reading Foucault and Sartre while watching Gerard Depardieu films and singing Frere Jacques. Another good way to support the French is by listening to this here imported soundtrack to the newest Olivier Assayas film (he's best known for Irma Vep, an inquiry into the state of contemporary French cinema starring Maggie Cheung and Nouvelle-Vague veteran Jean-Pierre Leaud) which consists primarily of original music by Sonic Youth. Sonic Youth are obviously French sympathizers, as they have played with subversive gallic chanteuse Brigitte Fontaine and covered Plastic Bertrand's "Ca Plane Pour Moi." Didn't much care for either the last Sonic Youth album proper or the recent "In The Fishtank" improv collaboration with I.C.P. and the Ex, but this is nice. Treading a path somewhere in between their song-oriented albums and noisier improvisations, not unlike the SYR record with Jim O'Rourke, Invito Al Cielo, or the little feedbacky instrumental moments in between singing on their poppier songs taken and stretched out into languorous, occasionally dark full length instrumentals (Kim Gordon does lend vocals to the first track). Some of the prettiest Sonic Youth instrumentals I've heard for sure, very mellow and pleasant, even post-rocky but with a gentle, layered touch. The more abstract, "difficult" pieces come together in waves of soothing, textural drone accented by softly clattering percussion. The addition of very slick (and very marketable, I guess) songs by Goldfrapp, Death In Vegas, Dub Squad, and Soulfly at the very end serve to break down the mood established by SY's subtle (but, comparatively, raw) washes of sound-- I'd recommend tuning out after track 8.

album cover SONIC YOUTH + I.C.P. + THE EX In the Fish Tank (Konkurrent) cd 11.98
Pretty bad free jazz(-y) material that never quite gets going (and when it does get going, it's still bad). Improv is great when it's done well (Nels Cline, Matthew Shipp, Evan Parker, the Brotzmanns) but this is heavy handed noodling that seems, um, pointless, especially when you consider that all parties involved (including Dutch percussionist Han Bennink, American avant percussionist and AQ-regular William Winant, etc) have made much, much better recordings in the past. Recorded in one day as part of Konkurrent Studio's In the Fishtank series. It must also be mentioned that we were all a bit disappointed that "I.C.P." did not refer to Insane Clown Posse. Eh. Buyer beware. Listen to the clip.

Here it is! The wait is over. Sonic Youth and their buddies Erase Errata. New songs from both bands. We have no idea what the fuck is up though with the price or why a domestic 7" should ever be more than $4 or $5 bucks. But not much we can do about it. They cost us a fortune. Maybe it's the poster. It -is- full color. Or the xeroxed insert. It -is- on blue paper. Whatever. We only have a handful and won't be able to get more. Buy it now or buy it later on Ebay for even more.

album cover SONIC YOUTH / MATS GUSTAFSSON / OG MERZBOW Andre Sider AF Sonic Youth (SYR8) (SYR) cd 10.98
Recorded live at the 2005 Roskilde Festival in Denmark, this latest installment of the self-released SYR series chronicles the monolithic collaboration between Sonic Youth, Japanoise master Merzbow, and Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson. Even Jim O'Rourke re-joins the band for this hour long improv sesh that results in a smoldering heap of damaged free jazz. These dudes really had to bring out the big guns here, considering they were opening up for Black Sabbath (!!!) on this particular night of the festival, not an easy task. On one level, this record sort of shows that improvising isn't exactly what Sonic Youth does best, although there is a charm in the clumsy nature of the collaboration that ends up being really cool and unpredictable. Merzbow and Gustafsson really shine here, conjuring a sea of noisy textures that are harsh and cataclysmic but never over the top or indulgent. "Andre Sider Af Sonic Youth" is the perfect addition to the SYR series and a must-have for any fan of free noise sorcery.

album cover SONIC YOUTH WITH TIM BARNES Koncertas Stan Brakhage Prisiminimui (SYR) cd 13.98
Number six in their SYR series. This time Sonic Youth show their support and love of avant-garde cinema as this was from a live show they played at The Anthology Film Archives Center for a celebration of the life and legacy of Stan Brakhage. Joined by percussionist Tim Barnes (Tower Recordings, P.G. Six, Nagisa Ni Te, Dean Roberts, Essex Green, Silver Jews, Jukeboxer, etc.) these are three long "heady jams" as the band calls it. You can hear and feel the influence of the NYC avant-film scene on these jams and can imagine them being a perfect accompaniment to the flickering projection of light and color. The packaging includes a nice poster from the concert and the cover image is a beautiful still of a young, mustachioed Stan Brakhage taken from a Jones Megas film from the 60's. NYC avant-cinema given the soundtrack it deserves.
