You are it. No, you are it. Hey, you are really it. You are it...

The double album Daydream Nation, by Sonic Youth, turns 25 this month. The first single from the album, Teen Age Riot, "was about appointing J Mascis as our de facto alternative dream president". Other songs were about author William Gibson's "cyberpunk" literary concepts ("The Sprawl", or (maybe) about Joni Mitchell ("Hey Joni"). The album has been reissued previously in 2007, and today on facebook, the band announced " the original 2xlp and cd will be back in print in early 2014 along with more early sonic youth lps + cds".

Sonic Life

With Sonic Youth on indefinite hiatus, the band members are keeping themselves busy with other projects. Thurston Moore is playing solo shows centered around his latest solo album, the Beck-produced Demolished Thoughts, with a band he jokingly(?) referred to this past Friday night as "Dush Krew" in honor of his crush on actress Eliza Dushku. Kim Gordon recently designed clothes for French brand Surface to Air, is currently playing shows with Bill Nace as part of the noise improvisation duo Body/Head, and was kind enough recently to share her favorite taco recipe. Lee Ranaldo is poised to release his first song-oriented solo album on Matador Records; he debuted the music video for the first single ("Off the Wall") today on his website. Steve Shelley played drums on Lee's new album, recently collaborated with Pete Nolan of Magik Markers (Sonic Youth's most interesting protégés) on Nolan's side-project Spectre Folk, and is currently drumming for Chicago's Disappears whose new album is out via Kranky records in March. Meanwhile, Jim O'Rourke is preparing to curate the All Tomorrow's Parties I'll Be Your Mirror Festival in Tokyo this April, where he will also perform his 1999 album Eureka in full with a 12-piece band.
