Sonic Youth To Release Live Album 'Battery Park, NYC: July 4, 2008' In June

Thursday, 23 May 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

Sonic Youth will release 'Battery Park, NYC: July 4, 2008' this summer.

Previously only available as bonus material for their final album, 2009's 'The Eternal', the live LP will get an independent release on June 7 through Matador Records.

The album was recorded during the band's career-spanning set at Battery Park’s River To River Festival in 2008. Head below to listen to the live version of Bull In The Heather and check out the tracklist.

Sonic Youth split in 2011, following the announcement that Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore were ending their 27-year marriage. Since then, Gordon, Moore and Lee Ranaldo (guitarist and vocalist) have all pursued solo projects.

Cate Le Bon - Reward (Album Review)
Tue 04 Jun 2019
Photo: Ivana Kličković Cate Le Bon has never been easy to pin down. Having toured and collaborated with a diverse selection of musicians ranging from St. Vincent to Deerhunter, the Welsh musician and producer could loosely be described as trading in sprawling alt-folk, but that would only tell half the story. On her newest record, ‘Reward’, Le Bon creates a unique world indebted to new wave and jazz as much as it is to contemporary pop and folk acts—all with her own idiosyncratic twist.
