Sonic Youth NYC Ghosts And Flowers on LP + Download

For more than a quarter century, Sonic Youth – featuring Thurston Moore, Kim Gordon, Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley – ruled the New York underground as the reigning post-punk experimental noise band of its era, releasing 15 full-length albums, from 1983's Confusion Is Sex to 2009's The Eternal. Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) is re-releasing the entire nine-album DGC/Geffen catalog – which ranges from 1990's Goo to 2006's Rather Rippedremastered from the original stereo analog master tapes on high-grade vinyl. All vinyl album releases will also include an accompanying digital download card.

2000's NYC Ghosts & Flowers is Sonic Youth's thirteenth album, and yet manages to sound fresh and familiar at the same time - probably largely due to the theft of an extensive amount of their gear directly prior to the album's composition. It was also their shortest record in years, a fact that shouldn't be interpreted as lack of new ideas - instead, Sonic Youth offer a fury of chaotic, melodic, and psychotic soundwaves that leave you wanting more.

Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune exclaimed: "Though Sonic Youth flirted with alternative-rock songcraft in the early '90s, these noise-rock renegades are once again happily viewing their guitars as hunks of wood, wire and infinite possibility...No rock band makes the avant-garde sound quite this tactile and sensual."
