Sonic Youth —
EVOL ... LP SST, 1986. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Perhaps the first great completely great Sonic Youth album! Sonic Youth had been sputtering around the New York art punk scene since the early 80s, but things really come together with this work of aggressively fractured genius rom '86. New drummer Steve Shelly's arrival brought a solid backdrop to Thurston Moore's and Lee Renaldo's "Sister Ray" worshipping electric squall, and it made a world of difference. The standout is "Expressway To Yr Skull", one of the great underground rock songs of the 80s – one that had the group working what could almost be called a melodic style, albeit one filled with noisy clatter. Still one of the most interesting and rewarding indie rock albums of its time! Other tracks include "Tom Violence", "Shadow Of A Doubt", "Star Power", "Green Light", and "Bubblegum".
