  • After a solid twenty-three years of explosive creativity Sonic Youth throws down what may be their heaviest classic since their own genre-breaking Daydream Nation in 1988.
  • Sonic Nurse is the nineteenth long player by the New York City supernova, together since 1981.
  • Ten songs of American beauty and sonic death with wild and colorful cover art by renowned artist Richard Prince from his notorious Nurse Paintings series.
  • Check out the first track, ‘Pattern Recognition’, and hear Kim Gordon take Justin Timberlake’s hand and stick it in a tendon-shredding meat grinder.
  • Hear Sonic Youth gay marriage the hell out of religious zealot war pigs Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush and Ashcroft with the meditative ‘Peace Attack’.
  • Imagine Bare Trees-era Fleetwood Mac jamming with Jealous Again-era Black Flag on the heart-pounding ‘Unmade Bed’ and ‘I Love Golden Blue’.
  • Listen to the core reactor awesomeness of ‘Paper Cup Exit’ as it reduces such legends as Led Zeppelin and Yes to just so much British schoolboy whimpering.
