Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) Between The Times And The Tides on LP + MP3 Coupon
Between The Times And The Tides is the first proper, song-oriented studio album from Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo. Recorded with longstanding Sonic Youth producer John Agnello, the album is a shimmering and melodic tapestry of rock sounds.
Ranaldo’s trademark alternate-tuning guitar work is at the forefront here, but it's amplified by brilliant leadwork from Wilco’s Nels Cline on every track. The all-star lineup is rounded out by Sonic Youth’s Steve Shelley on drums, Alan Licht on guitar, and John Medeski on keyboards. There are also cameos from original Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert and producer and instrumentalist Jim O’Rourke.
Between The Times and The Tides is equal parts smart, confident and loose in a manner that recalls some of Matador's favorite rock ’n' roll projects yet sounds like a fantastic new band that was apparently being assembled right under our noses. With lyrics inspired by Ranaldo’s childhood and adolescence, it’s a fascinatingly approachable song collection from one of rock’s greatest guitarists. Includes MP3 coupon.
