Favorite tracks: “Incinerate”
How I heard about it: My friend Joe Lopps introduced me to Sonic Youth back in 1997. When “Incinerate” popped up in my Spotify discover weekly, I was thrilled to have a blast-from-the-past.
Favorite line from artist’s Wikipedia: “Compared to previous Sonic Youth recordings, the album features many short, conventionally-structured, melodic songs and fewer feedback-fuelled left-field improvisations (the band’s avant-garde tendencies nowadays have been largely exorcised through SYR releases and solo outings rather than band albums). “
