Sonic Youth "Bad Moon Rising"


Sonic Youth's second full-length, "Bad Moon Rising," was originally released on Homestead and Blast First! in 1985. Its original, eight-song tapestry of droning guitar feedback, distant, clattering percussion, and sullen vocals, all held together with interstitial noise loops and shadowy haze, ambles through a long, dark night before the feverish "Death Valley '69," driven by runaway guitar riffs and a frantic Thurston Moore/Lydia Lunch vocal duet, pounds the capstone into place. Sonic Youth's big leap forward from "Confusion Is Sex" and "Kill Yr Idols" "reflects the spirit of the time," to quote All Music Guide. Now available again on vinyl. LP includes digital download of album and three additional tracks.
