Daydream Nation

I picked up a copy of the new 33/13 book on Sonic Youth’s 1988 album ‘Daydream Nation’ by Matthew Stearns.  It’s overwritten in a good rock and roll way, with a solid breakdown of the individual tracks.  I’ve tended to think of the CD as one huge slab of sound, but reading the book gives me a new way of focusing on certain details.  If you’re a fan, I’d recommend it.

Also picked up “The Damaged Room” CD of b-sides and rarities by SY.  I had not been in a hurry to get it, but I find I like it quite a lot – mostly longer workouts, including a 26 minute original cut of ‘The Diamond Sea’.
