I'm SOOOOOOOOOooooooooo off to see SONIC YOUTH play this weekend. As a little pre-show taster I have their new B-sides and rarities collection 'The Destroyed Room' I'm playing this for the second time and as I find with a lot of their tracks they just work their way into your brain slowly until you become hooked. If you're reading this and are interested in such a collection then you're probably already a fan and will be familiar with some of the tracks on here. The selected cuts are largely instrumental. My personal fave is the epic 'The Diamond Sea'. An extended piece that begins with Thurston Moore's vocals and a poppy sound and then wanders off into layers of feedback and rich avant garde dreamy textures. This demonstrates perfectly how this band have had major label success yet can be accessible, cross over into the mainstream and still be cutting edge, forward thinking, experimental noisy and simultaneously melodic. CD only on Geffen.
