last three SY albums have been three of their best, and they CERTAINLY have advanced their sound. if they release ten more albums as good as nurse or rather ripped, ill buy them all.

I think they've increasingly refined it over the last couple of albums, but that's been a good thing: they're sharp and focused and writing really great songs.

J0hn D., Friday, 13 February 2009 15:58 (ten years ago) Permalink

I totally agree. Goo and Dirty seem like a dress rehearsal for the fully realized three- and four-minute songs on the last three albums; the textures also assimilate what they learned on A Thousand Leaves and NY Ghost and Flowers.

I'm totally pumped about this album -- didn't like Rather Ripped as much as the 2 before it, but my general feeling is that, to paraphrase Keith Moon, Sonic Youth are still the best Sonic Youth-style band in the world, so as long as they want to make records I will listen to them.

It's kind of funny to read Thurston's recent interviews where he talks about how excited he is to get off Geffen and how constricted they felt making the last few albums...like wtf, they lasted on a major label about 10 years longer than almost any comparable band had, and gave up any hope of getting on the radio like 5 albums ago. I find it hard to believe they were trying to appease record execs with Sonic Nurse or NYC Ghosts & Flowers, or that they're really going to do much differently, musically or otherwise, with Matador.

Sundar, who else would you nominate? I mean I guess it all depends on how broadly you define "Sonic Youth-style band," but still, I feel like for all their influence they're still in a category fo their own.

I don't think RR fans are mental per se but I don't really get the enthusiasm, do y'all think it's dramatically different from or better than the 2 before it? It feels like such a continuation (but not improvement on) the sound of those albums to me.

weird, sounds totally different to me ... shorter, peppier songs with parts more approximating "hooks" and choruses. i was pretty bored by murray street, sonic nurse, and i feel like there's another one in there i've completely forgotten about

congratulations (n/a), Friday, 13 February 2009 17:06 (ten years ago) Permalink

RR is a continuation yes, but a marked improvement.

I guess it all comes down to songs, though. Unlike Sonic Nurse and Murray Street, there's not a single moment of RR I don't like.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 13 February 2009 17:07 (ten years ago) Permalink

I'd say SY's 00s output is more enjoyable than their 90s output.

Rather Ripped was enjoyable, cruisin in the car summer tunes in way that I can't say about the bulk of their output. That's a good thing.

So yay to The Eternal.

Brooker Buckingham, Friday, 13 February 2009 17:11 (ten years ago) Permalink

yeah maybe this is just a personal preference thing...to me the best of SY's later records are the ecstatic instrumental sections of 7+ minute jams like "Rain On Tin"...i don't really look to them for shorter, peppier songs with "hooks," although they did excel at those at one point earlier in their career.

some dude, Friday, 13 February 2009 17:14 (ten years ago) Permalink

the Blender article did mention one song on The Eternal being 8 minutes long, though, so there'll be at least one surefire jam for me.

So the new soundscan has the album debuting at #18. Their first Top 20 album! Though I'm sure they've sold just under 20,000 copies in a week before.

*feelin* the mediocrity of this album, hard. not that it's bad, it seems like they're solidifying their trajectory into goofy, riff-based tuneage. feels more alive than rather ripped. it almost feels like a weak malkmus album to me, but with very signature sy sounds. affecting songs: no way, calming the snake, sacred trixter, antenna

saw them live last night, super heavy on the new album and all those songs kind of killed live. although it was kind of a relief when they did white cross and tom violence.

er, not white cross. also, I left before the final encore where they did sprawl, so, my fault

yeah I was at the oakland show. kind of wish we'd seen the daydream nation songs in the encore but I saw that DN show last year so not a huge loss, and we had to get home. but the show made me appreciate these songs more; I still think they sound kind of weak on the album though.

akm, Monday, 3 August 2009 16:28 (nine years ago) Permalink

I saw the 2nd show in D.C. on this tour and I wish there was more DN stuff (only 1 out of the 5 old songs, "Hey Joni"), since they never came anywhere near here with the tour where they played the whole album.

surm dude (some dude), Monday, 3 August 2009 16:34 (nine years ago) Permalink

i'm even more psyched for tonight's show after reading your guys' posts about the fox show. but i think the new album is a great SY disc, though it did take about 6 good listens for it to begin to really grow on me

surm dude (some dude), Monday, 3 August 2009 17:19 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah that was excellent despite the fact I called it white cross a few hours ago. I suppose SY's catalogue is so deep, at this point, that it is impossible and unlikely that they are going to play even 1/4 of what I want to hear.

akm, Monday, 3 August 2009 18:30 (nine years ago) Permalink

...until they do a "Live By Request" tour... to which I would not be opposed.

BTW highlights for me were "What We Know" and the seemingly endless (but hypnotic) Massage the History, which has been a household fave on the new one.

WARS OF ARMAGEDDON (Karaoke Version) (Sparkle Motion), Tuesday, 4 August 2009 16:04 (nine years ago) Permalink

i was there with a friend that was at the fox the night before. first thing he said about the previous night was that something was just not right with the sound at the fox. after the show last night he said the sound was 20X better. and the band is just a well-oiled machine. the best show i've seen this decade, if not ever. and i'm not just saying that. i love the "lows" that the addition of Mark I. brings; it really fills out their sound well, imo. the crowd was great, too, but there was extra excitement when they broke out Death Valley 69 and another early one for their second encore. there is a link common to the greatest NY bands(VU, Dolls, even the Ramones to an extent)- that capturing the essence of careening subway train - and i LOVE that.

outdoor_miner, Tuesday, 4 August 2009 17:16 (nine years ago) Permalink

i was there. how can they keep up with the double encores at this stage in their career? jesus

but yes the show was great- it was awesome to see them in a smaller club context instead of a festival like last time, such a traet

psychgawsple, Tuesday, 4 August 2009 18:29 (nine years ago) Permalink

i don't understand what you mean by the double encore thing. they pretty much spend the bare minimum amount of time a band of their stature/catalog can spend onstage for a headlining show, and just happen to divide the encore into two encores; pretty much any other band with over a dozen albums and a rabid fanbase does longer shows and gets more out of encores.

not sure if you were completely serious, some dude. but with all the enrgy and decibels SY put out, i'm completely satisfied w/ even just a 60 minute set. maybe becuz my ears are kind of old; more than 90 minutes of SY @ maximum volume is PLENTY (for me). i did enjoy a couple Grateful Dead shows a long time ago, but they are kind of the exception to my less is more rule

outdoor_miner, Tuesday, 4 August 2009 21:45 (nine years ago) Permalink

well, they played well under 90 minutes when i saw them and i kinda doubt they go much longer than that very often. a lot of bands their age or older tend to play at least 2 hours (admittedly usually in bigger venues, but still), and i don't feel like SY are so energetic that they're exhausting themselves onstage. not complaining at all, though, it was a great show, one of the best I've seen this year

kevin and the ragged keller (some dude), Tuesday, 4 August 2009 22:16 (nine years ago) Permalink

honestly i don't think i want to see anyone play for more than an hour, and most bands could stand to stick to half-hour sets

three years pass...

i kind of feel like a lot of the loops thrown by their post-2000 records involve having the bass playing be done by musicians, i.e. people who learned how to play the bass in other kinds of music than sonic youth music. i don't exactly want to denigrate kim gordon's playing, but it's always seemed to me like the least interesting part of the band. whereas a lot of the recent stuff seems to be most 'normal' (as far as their settling into groovy tuneful jamsmiths goes) where the bass is most prominent.

i've never really tried to get straight on who's playing what on all these records, though.

j., Monday, 15 April 2013 03:59 (six years ago) Permalink

Disappointing end to the band.

Still an alright album, though.

Austin, Monday, 15 April 2013 04:10 (six years ago) Permalink

xp - i dunno, it seems to me that they switched gears on a number of fronts between washing machine and nyc ghosts. they biggest change, it seems to me, was that they at least partially disengaged from the the alternative pop culture that they'd helped create. they'd never again even try to write a song like "kool thing" or "bull in the heather", wouldn't pull another "into the groove(y)". they didn't seem to be shooting for 120 minutes success anymore, were content to simply be sonic youth, existing in an art-rock bubble of their own design. at the same time, they de-emphasized the noise, angst and transgression that had once balanced and sharpened the pop flirtations. they may not have abandoned difficult listening, but they saved the outest stuff for peripheral releases (like the SYR series) and solo projects. plus all their voodoo shit got yoinked.

not saying you're wrong, just that there's factors.

I've always really enjoyed Kim's bass-playing, though I'm sure her move to third guitar might explain their ease with the jammier material that followed.

What was left of that 'alternative pop culture' by 2000? How well did Sonic Youth even fit into it in the early 90s? None of those singles was a "Creep" or "Loser", let alone a "Teen Spirit"/"Jeremy". Afaict, releasing singles like "The Empty Page" and "Incinerate" and touring with the Black Keys probably showed about as much effort to engage with 00s modern rock as they showed in the early 90s. "Into the Groove(y)" was as peripheral as the SYR releases, surely.

I mostly agree with j. One interesting KG bass moment is the harmonics on "Secret Girl". She has some cool riffs on Confusion too, esp "Protect Me You".

EveningStar (Sund4r), Monday, 15 April 2013 20:18 (six years ago) Permalink

well, i think the shift is most apparent between dirty & experimental jet-set on one hand and a thousand leaves on the other, and the latter came out in '98. i wasn't saying that they they were ever hitmakers on the nirvana/radiohead level, but rather that they at one time seemed to be fascinated and legitimately engaged with pop as something existing outside of themselves, as part of the urban landscape, something to mock, borrow, bounce off of, transform and criticize. in addition to the above examples, the booth recording of "addicted to love", blasting snippets of madonna & J&MC, rapping, tons of covers, grunge promotion, "eliminator jr.", carpenters fixation, etc. this side of y2k the sensibility lingers in tracks like "mariah carey & the arthur doyle hand cream", but the sense of a real push-pull relationship with mainstream pop is gone, imo.

i seem to remember "groove(y)" being kind of a big deal among critics and indie rockers at the time of its release, especially in the UK mags i was reading, but sonic youth in general were closer to the center of the pop cultural conversation back then. i retrospect it has come to seem rather peripheral, yeah.

I have many lovely lacy nightgowns (contenderizer), Monday, 15 April 2013 20:29 (six years ago) Permalink

Hm, maybe it was part of aging? I'll admit that I think a lot of those things are among their least successful projects.

xpost "Free City Rhymes" is one of their best songs imo.

EveningStar (Sund4r), Monday, 15 April 2013 20:35 (six years ago) Permalink

i wouldn't say any of this is wrong, i was just thinking of what kinds of problems the band had to deal with when they were making music. like, the latter-day basslines move around a lot more, and often seem more idiomatically 'rock' or 'alt-rock' or whatever in minor but consequential ways. or on some of the songs on 'the eternal', it just seems way more resonant, filling up the soundspace, which means that either the guitars have to play through it (to different effect than in the past) or to be played a different way than before (which i think happens a lot on, say, 'malibu gas station' - those chordings!).

but this all seems pretty hard to make out to me. i think the band more or less kept up its practice of tinkering and modifying and trying new ways to do 'the same thing', but the results don't always stand out in terms of what was done, what problems were solved, what choices were made.

j., Monday, 15 April 2013 22:58 (six years ago) Permalink
