- Revolution Blues / Bushes and Briars by Lee Ranaldo and The Dust
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 14 January 2014
Sonic Youth grey-hair Lee Ranaldo has been forging a nice little rockin’ solo career for himself since the presumed dissolution of his old group. He’s moved into a more laid back retro rock territory of late with all screwdrivers locked safely away in a drawer in his New York loft apartment.
Here are two acoustic based tracks recorded especially for Spanish label Primavera Sound. ‘Revolution Blues’ is a Neil Young cover and doesn’t stray far from his drifting countrified style with lots of strummed acoustics and a lazy, dusty feel to proceedings. On the flip he takes on Sandy Denny’s ‘Bushes and Briars’ which is a quite lovely take on a lilting song taken from her solo album ‘Sandy’.
Here Ranaldo shows he can strip everything back to acoustic guitar and vocals and still keep the listeners ear intensely focused. Just the slightest bit of piano is added to a beautiful autumnal song.
