So this all started when I made a sonic youth mixtape and I was just left unsatisfied aftwerwards. It's not that the songs weren't good but I need to immerse in a full sy record from a certain period to fully appreciate them. It sounds too weird to have "brother james' after "incinerate", something about the flow. Thats when I realized sy truly are an album band and even though the idea of album oriented rock conjures up bad images of prog rock from the 70s I think it's a compliment. Don't get me wrong I love bands that will release a few amazing singles like the buzzcocks, mgmt and superchunk but I want a band that can hold my attention over 10 minutes.
So what are some of your favorite album bands that can release a collectively good record?
"I said I didnt mean to take up all your sweet time
Ill give it right back one of these days
If I dont meet you no more in this world then uh
Ill meet ya on the next one
And dont be late "
...And me just another dream theory, lost inside your eye
"when my mind's uncertain my body decides
what it will do to get through the hell of the night
as I trip on the ocean that leads through your eyes
well my eyes can't wait til they finally see through you"
