Sonic Youth - Battery Park, NYC July 4th 2008


  • £16.99

Sonic Youth live in NYC 2008 was originally released with pre-orders of the band's final album, The Eternal, in 2009. To mark the 10th anniversary of their last release, Matador Records have reissued this exceptional live album to the wider public. 


"Sonic Youth ceased to exist in 2011, at the end of a 30-year career, much of which was obsessively archived in live audio and video recordings that have surfaced both officially and not so officially. Documents of their last few years together show a band that had perfected its live show and was spending a lot of time revisiting the songs of its early days. A free show in a lower Manhattan park on the Fourth of July is a pretty good place to capture a band that was forever inseparable from New York City, specifically its lower reaches" - Susan Elizabeth Shepard, Pitchfork
