The Eternal by Sonic Youth
Released: Jun 2009
Label: Matador
It's been nearly three decades in Sonic Youth's saga, yet the band's art-rock blitz sounds as vital as ever. With DIY on the rise and a new wave of lo-fi making indie circles swoon, their influence is undeniable. The band itself has even ditched the major labels, releasing The Eternal on Matador. The album reveals a wise maturity; while the cacophony of grinding, oddly tuned guitars remains a central element, there's a patient, poignant melodicism that lingers. Spacey drones and vocals slither around dead-on drums for a sound that remains as fresh as their name suggests.
