SONIC YOUTH

Daydream Nation

(Goofin’) Cassette $10.00

The band’s sixth full-length, widely considered to be their watershed moment, which catapulted them into the mainstream and proved that indie bands could enjoy wider commercial success without compromising their artistic vision.

SONIC YOUTH

Evol

(Goofin’) Cassette $10.00

“EVOL … mark[s] the true departure point of Sonic Youth’s musical evolution,” notes Pitchfork. “In measured increments, Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo … bring form to the formless, tune to the tuneless, and, with the help of Steve Shelley’s drums…, [impose] melody and composition on their trademark dissonance.”

SONIC YOUTH

Kool Thing

(DGC) Used 12-inch $15.00

Album version backed with eight-track demo version.

SONIC YOUTH

Made In USA

(Rhino) Used LP $25.00 (Out-of-stock)

Film soundtrack recorded in the late ’80s between Evol and Sister, unreleased until 1995. As highly textural incidental film music, it is, of course, more atmospheric and drier than usual. Clear vinyl. Sealed

SONIC YOUTH

Silver Session

(SKR) Used CD $10.00

Guitars and basses plugged in and left to roar and howl like airplanes burning over the Pacific; a sick, outmoded beatbox run through the P.A. blowing out horrendous distorted pulsations; mixed, edited, processed during the sessions for A Thousand Leaves.

SONIC YOUTH

Simon Werner A Disparu

(SYR) Used LP $15.00

Music for the film directed by Fabrice Gobert, re-organized and montaged and extending into new sonic realms. With DL card that gets you bonus tracks. Sealed

SONIC YOUTH

Sister

(Goofin’) Cassette $10.00

Another notch in the band’s move away from no wave, yet not entirely abandoning their experimental approach. The contexts Gordon, Moore, Ranaldo and Shelley create for their noisier elements are more assured, the incorporating of dissonance into traditional song structures more masterful.

SONIC YOUTH / YAMATSUKA EYE

TV Shit

(Ecstatic Peace) Used LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

A symphony mix of Youth Brigade’s legendary “No Song II” in four takes, with backing vocals from Mark Arm and J. Mascis. Sealed
