Matador has just released the first mp3 from Sonic Youth’s highly anticipated new record, The Eternal, due out June 9. It’s an aggressive showcase of the classic Sonic Youth sound with Kim Gordon’s patented yelp over a shower of surging yet oddly tuned (of course) guitars. Easily the band at its most powerful and rocking. Having followed its own non-linear muse for decades, Sonic Youth seems hungry for its darker punk roots. An odd but welcome direction to be sure. Very much looking forward to the new record.
