Sonic Youth "Sister"


1987's "Sister" was another notch in Sonic Youth's move away from No Wave, yet still maintained their experimental approach. Gordon, Moore, Ranaldo, and Shelley were coming into their own at this point, combining elements of noise, punk, and pop. They had also become better songwriters since their previous album, providing better context for their noisier elements and incorporating the dissonance of their earlier releases into more traditional song structures. Now available again on vinyl.
