Music

.: It should come as no surprise that the new Sonic Youth is very good. Three tracks stand out right now:
1. Pattern Recognition, 2. Unmade Bed, and 5. Stones
I really, really like Unmade Bed but then I found myself particularly astonished by Stones, good stuff. What else did I listen to this evening:
Sufjan Stevens - Seven Swans and Ghost - Hypnotic Underworld
Listening to Sufjan is always cool and I'm finally beginning to dig the psych-folk-rock grooves of Ghost. I picked it up a couple of weeks ago, but hadn't found the appropriate time or mood to allow it a reasonable listen.

.: Update - Sonic Youth on their Leno appearance played Unmade Bed.

The new Sonic Youth album is on my "to buy" list. I never did get around to picking up Murray Street, though I still may. Hmm. Maybe tonight, along with the new Carl Newman, which Pitchfork seems to like so much.

Murray St. is good, it grabbed me more quickly than Sonic Nurse. It wouldn't surprise me if I end up liking Sonic Nurse more. I tend to hold albums that grow on me in higher regard.

I'll be picking up that A.C. Newman for sure, someday.
