Sonic Youth: “Rather Ripped”

Describe it 1 sentence: Rawk + Rolly Coaster

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). “
