Sonic YouthDaydream Nation ... LP
Goofin', 1988. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Sonic Youth at their best – bringing the earlier, noisier impulses into an anthemic rock realm with incredible results! Daydream Nation's legancy looms as heavily over the indie rock to come in the next 20-or-so years as much as any other album album we can think of...hell, just the first 2 songs do that – and it doesn't let up 'til the end. Perfection! Includes "Teen Age Riot", "Silver Rocket", "The Sprawl", 'Cross The Breeze", "Eric's Trip", "Total Trash", "Hey Joni", "Providence", "Candle", "Rain King" and the closing "Kissability" suite.

Sonic YouthSister (with bonus download) ... LP
SST/Goofin', 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
The second album in Sonic Youth's earlier run as one the most exciting bands in underground rock, and possibly the greatest album in their long career! It doesn't take a genius to ram a screwdriver into the neck of a guitar, but when they're at their best (as they are on EVOL, Sister, and Daydream Nation), Sonic Youth is dizzyingly great. Thurston Moore and Lee Renaldo spin acres of white noise beauty on Sister, a melodic hurricane that really set the standard for the band's future work. It's way more than the lull, lilt, then ROAR style of indie rock that blanketed the late 80s/early 90s scene – the songs run deeper than that – with subtleties galore within all the clatter, making the frenzy around the corner that much more powerful. Essential! "Schizophrenia", "Catholic Block", "Beauty Lies In The Eye", "Stereo Sanctity", "Tuff Knarl", "White Cross", "Master Dik" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonic YouthDirty (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Geffen, 1992. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sonic Youth's second set for Geffen and perhaps the SC album most burdened by expectations of the time – produced by Butch Vig and with a bigger, yet way noisier sound than Goo. The sound is straight up incredible – whether you'd want to credit Vig, mixer Andy Wallace or Sonic Youth themselves – the feedback and layers of fuzz are massive, making the few quieter moments all the more impressive when they spring up. The great songs and odd changes are all Sonic Youth – and this is another essential set from them. Include "100%", "Swimsuit Issue", "Theresa's Sound-World", "Drunken Butterfly", "Shoot", "Wish Fulfillment", "Sugar Kane", "Youth Against Fascism", "On The Strip", "Purr", "Creme Brulee". CD

✨✧ Sonic YouthEVOL (with bonus download) ... LP
Goofin', 1986. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
For many folks, this is the first truly great album from Sonic Youth – the first in which the group found any kind of a groove at all! Sonic Youth had been sputtering around the New York art punk scene since the early 80s, but things didn't really come together until this work of aggressively fractured genius hit the streets in '86. New drummer Steve Shelley'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. Arguably the point where Sonic Youth stopped started making some of the most interesting and rewarding indie rock of all time! Other tracks include "Tom Violence", "Shadow Of A Doubt", "Star Power", "Green Light", and "Bubblegum". LP, Vinyl record album

Geffen, 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sonic Youth's last album from Geffen – capping off one of the most successful runs an art rock band could ever have hoped to make on a major label! Back to the Moore-Gordon-Renaldo-Shelley line-up after a stellar couple of albums with Jim O'Rourke in the band, you could be forgiven for thinking you'll sense his loss going in – but the truth is this is just as strong as Murray Street and Sonic Nurse, right on par with those late carreer classics and a fitting finally to an exceptial period for the band. Essential! Includes "Reena", "Incinerate", "Do You Believe In Rapture?", "What A Waste", "Free", "Rats", "Steam", "Or'" and more. CD

DGC, 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sonic Youth as early 80s noise mongers – a low fi, clattering mess of fuzzy post punk – sounding better than we ever remembered all these years later! There's an undercurrent of ominousness that permeates Confusion Is Sex – working with space and a sense of pacing that's an sharp counterpoint to the caustic waves guitar noise. We've been underappreciating these uber early Sonic Youth LPs – all hail Sonic Youth, who were pretty amazing earlier in the game than we previously realized! CD

Geffen, 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
Later era greatness from Sonic Youth – a record we love just as much as thier first couple major label efforts, perhaps even more so! Murray Street came about after the mainstream's kinda-sorta-almost welcoming of SY, a post-90s world where they'd reached art rock elder status, and were seemingly free to follow their creative whims on big ol' Geffen Records. Jim O'Rourke was a full on band member at this point, giving that much more of a soar to the guitar sounds, which have an almost Television-like way of mixing accessible melody and freeform atmoshere. Titles include "The Empty Page", "Rain On Tin", "Karen Revisited", "Plastic Sun", "Sympathy For The Strawberry" and more. CD

Titles include Steve Reich's "Pendulum Music", John Cage's "Six" and "Four (6)", Yoko Ono's "Voice Piece For Soprano", Christian Wolff's "Edges", George Maciunas' "Piano Piece #13", and Cornelius Cardew's "Treatise".

A huge turning point for Sonic Youth – one of those records that suddenly made the world understand that they could craft songs as well as they could craft noise – propelling them from the New York underground onto the turntables of hipsters around the globe! The set's still one of our favorite by the group – and includes the beautifully sinister "Death Valley 69", with fantastic guest lyrics from Lydia Lunch – plus "Brave Men Run", "Society Is A Hole", "Ghost Bitch", "I Love Her All The Time", "Just Is Might", "I'm Insane", and "Justice Is Might".

Geffen, 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sonic Youth's follow-up to the ALMOST commercial breakthrough Dirty – sarcastically-titled, and overall effort mixes their time-honored noisy weirdness and accessible way with melody in new and compelling ways! Working again with producer Butch Vig, but moving away from the loud guitar ragers of Dirty into stranger territory. Almost worth it alone for "Bull In The Heather", one of the weirdest first singles for a major label rock album in the early 90s – but this whole thing is pretty great, and generally underrated in the SY annals. Other tracks include "Starfield Road", "Screaming Skull", "Tokyo Eye", "Waist", "Bone", "Winner's Blues", "Sweet Shine" and more. CD

Geffen, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first EP from the group – with lots more bonus material too! The core set is the one that would come to define the downtown noise aesthetic of the New York scene in the early 80s – a mode built from higher ideals, but focused into youthful energy that can easily reach across to the common listener – in ways that made Sonic Youth so important in bridging the gap between high and low art at the time! The music is actually lightly less outside than other material – a condensed sound built from raw, chiming guitars – and topped with their signature varied dynamic range! This is the early lineup that featured Richard Edson on drums – and the EP features the titles "The Burning Spear", "I Dreamed I Dream", "She Is Not Alone", "I Don't Want To Push It", and "The Good & The Bad".

A masterpiece of new music for guitar from the legendary Glenn Branca – a set that both draws on all the minimal experiments on the New York scene of the 70s, and the big wave of underground music at the end of the decade! Branca effortlessly fuses the rock and compositional communities here – working with Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, and artist Ned Sublette – in a fierce set of tunes that blend four guitars, electric bass, and drums – all with an instrumental frenzy that matches some of the best early jams from Sonic Youth. Branca's approach is less freeform, but has very much the same intensity – and titles include "Lesson No 2", "Structure", "The Ascension", and "Spectacular Commodity". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Moe TuckerI Feel So Far Away – Anthology 1974 to 1998 ... CD
Sundazed, 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed anthology of solo material from VU drummer Moe Tucker – also the singer and one woman band on many of the best recordings here – a massive set that also includes recordings with Velvets cohorts Lou Reed, John Cale and Sterling Morrison, out rock eccentrics Jad Fair and Daniel Johnston, Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore and Lee Renaldo, Jonathan Richman and others! The majority of the material comes from independent and self-released records that Moe made from the early 80s to mid 90s – a fascinating wealth of songs that explore the proto rock primitivism that was such an indispensable facet of her style of drumming, along with excellent art rock collaborations with fellow outcast geniuses, Moe's loving, but skewed take on classic girl group songs and more. We learned some things about Moe Tucker we didn't know before this set. Thanks to Sundazed for such a solid statement on the great legacy of her later years! Includes "Bo Diddley", a wooly version of "Heroin", "Hey Mersh!", "Andy", "Pale Blue Eyes", "Lazy", "Then He Kissed Me", "I'm Waiting For The Man", "Spam Again (Live)", "I've Seen Into Your Soul", "Poor Little Fool", "I Wanna", "Last Night I Said Goodbye To My Friend" (previously unissued), "After Hours", "I'm Not", "Blue All The Way To Canada", "Slippin' And Slidin'", "Around And Around" and more. 32 tracks on the 2CD version, which include the CD-only "Ellas", "Do It Right", "Fired Up" and "Danny Boy".

The first-ever full release of material from the Velvet Underground's amazing run at The Matrix in San Francisco – part of which were issued previously on the Robert Quine collection, all finally out together in one overstuffed set! If you only know the Velvets in the studio, the group in a live setting is something else entirely – often a lot noisier and more unbridled, with especially strong interplay on the guitars – cascading sheets and layers of sound that show just how strongly these guys were influencing generations to come – years ahead of their time, with styles that few others would touch until the Sonic Youth generation! Quine's tapes are great, and full of fire – and there's lots of improvisation going on that makes versions of the same song sound quite different. Plus, some of the tracks here are ones that later appeared on Loaded – worked out in live versions long before the group took them in the studio – all in a whopping 42 tracks on 4CDs, with titles that include "Heroin", "Sweet Jane", "Rock & Roll", "I Can't Stand It", "White Light/White Heat", "Ocean", "We're Gonna Have A Real Good Time Together", "Lisa Says", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", "Over You", "Some Kinda Love", "Sweet Bonnie Brown/Too Much", "After Hours", "Pale Blue Eyes", "Venus In Furs", "Black Angel's Death Song", "There Shoe Goes Again", "New Age", and a 36 minute version of "Sister Ray"!

Blonde Redhead has a way of blending jagged guitar noise with oddly melodic vocals that's somewhat akin to prime Sonic Youth – it's not too surprising they recorded for Steve Shelley's Smells Like label early on – but Blonde Redhead's sound is ultimately all their own. A hell of a strong first few years of recordings by one the more influential indie rock bands of the mid 90s onward! Includes "I Don't Want U", "Astro Boy", "Sciuri Sciura", "Inside You", "Big Song", "Swing Pool", "Girl Boy", "Vague", "Jet Star", "Amescream", "Mama Cita", "Snippet", "Without Features", "(I Am Taking Out My Eurotrash) I Still Get Rocks Off", "Down Under", "Harmony", "Bean", "Jewel", "Flying Douglas", "It Was All So Sudden" (4 track demo) and more. 37 tracks in all – and in the esteemed Numero tradition, comes in a high quality package with heavy duty slipcase, previously unpublished photos, essays and more.

A gem of a record from the New York scene in the mid 90s – a tight statement by a group who seem to have learned all of the lessons of the Sonic Youth generation, picked up some of the fuzz of Spacemen 3, yet manage to come across with a much more punk-styled quality overall! This is the kind of music that would have been ruined by overproduction on a much bigger label, but gets perfect presentation here, thanks in part to producer Steve Shelley – with a vibe that's still wonderfully crisp after all of these years. Titles include "Mama Cita", "Snippet", "Astro Boy", "I Don't Want U", "Sciuri Sciura", and "Swing Pool". LP, Vinyl record album

Trost (Austria), 2023. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The alto and tenor of Peter Brotzmann get some fantastic accompaniment here – work from Heather Leigh on pedal steel and Fred Lonberg-Holm on cello – two instruments that really create this amazing sonic space next to the saxophones! Although Brotzmann recorded these performances as part of a series of 80th birthday concerts, he's got an incredibly powerful, youthful sound throughout – really barreling past the more spacious sounds of the other two instruments – not in a way that shrugs them aside, but which instead seems to use them for sonic springboards as new inspiration. Titles include the very long title track, "Naked Nudes" – plus "Flower Flaps" and "Johnny Anaconda". CD
