I’ve spent roughly a week and a half with Sonic Youth’s upcoming LP The Eternal (SY’s Matador Records debut). Remember in February when we we discussed event albums?  Well, this is most definitely one of mine.  The label just released the album’s lead off track, “Sacred Trickster”, as a free mp3 feeler.  Barely over two minutes, it’s a Kim Gordon tune in the vein of SY’s underrated 1994 LP Experimental Jet Set, Trash And No Star. Those with an itchy trigger finger can take advantage of purchasing The Eternal as part of the Buy Early Get Now program which includes, among other things, a pre-release stream of album on April 28 and MP3 outtakes. June 9th street date.

  2. @anon, look for a review coming soon. I like it. if you you enjoyed rather ripped you will dig.

  3. Experimental Jet Set, Trash And No Star is a monster of an album. It was actually the first SY album my young ears ever heard, I dodn’t know what I’d be listening to now if I hadn’t heard that record at that point in my life. Can’t wait to hear the new lp.

  4. [...] from their forthcoming albums. That’s “I Don’t Wanna Go There” and “Sacred Trickster,” [...]
