album review: sonic youth

To dismiss Sonic Youth as irrelevant is musically oblivious. These noise rockers practically created the genre of alternative in the eighties. Over the past ten years the band has rewarded fans with new material, despite their age; Sonic Youth never grows old. They've existed in several different incarnations, very DIY at first, sometimes label driven, moving to major label Geffen earlier in the decade. Finally in 2007, their frustrations led them to reputable record purveyor Matador, and their newfound harmonious relationship has proven prolific. Here they turn the same tricks with their old regime of noise-y, fuzzy guitars and odd, distraught chords, and for old fans, the formula will certainly click. Experimental guitars and weird noises abound as Youth supports their legacy of redefining what rock guitar can do. Keep Reading... - Joe Puglisi
