From Rolling Stone
It’s been close to a decade since Sonic Youth played their last concert in Brazil in the fall of 2011, and the group has been slowly releasing live recordings and outtakes from their archives ever since. The latest is a re-release of a concert they played just ahead of their final album, The Eternal. But even though Battery Park, NYC: July 4, 2008 previously came out on vinyl in 2009 as a perk to get people to preorder The Eternal, this version marks the first time it will be available on streaming services or available for purchase as its own release. It will now be available on June 7th.
The track list features songs from throughout the group’s career, including Experimental, Jet Set, Trash and No Star’s “Bull in the Heather” (The latter available to hear below). Guitarists Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore make their guitars chime out as bassist-vocalist Kim Gordon whisper-sings about wanting to be loved and drummer Steve Shelley alternates between rock rhythms and trip-hop beats.
