MP3: Sonic Youth – “Sacred Trickster” from The Eternal, out June 9 on Matador. Pre-order now and you get a bunch of extra booty.
“I want you to levitate me / Don’t you love me yet? / Press up against the amp / Turn up the treble / Don’t forget!” This is the kind of Sonic Youth I like best: short, fast, loud, and melodic (kinda). Matador says it’s a salute to “French painter Yves Klein and Western Massachusetts noise artist Noise Nomads,” but who cares? It rocks.
Sonic Youth: iTunes, Amazon, Insound, wiki, web.
