Daily Download: "Incinerate," Sonic Youth

Brand-new music from Sonic Youth

This is the first single from "Rather Ripped," the upcoming record from the veteran alt-rock heroes, their cool factor magically untarnished by age and changing fashions. They're at their tightest and most focused here, and glossy too, with those inimitable microtonal guitar parts still hinted at but essentially smoothed over, just as the feedback is repressed except for a brief burst.
