Hear ‘Rather Ripped’ now before it hits the shops next week.

Downtown New York, 1981 and the underground music scene is waking up to fresh-faced, little-known rock outfit Sonic Youth – a band who have since spent 25 years crushing and re-defining rock and roll convention.

Their twentieth in a long-line of LPs, ‘Rather Ripped’, is released next week. The July edition of Uncut reviews the album in full, ‘…exquisite….it’s rock about rock…’ and gives it a 4 out of 5 star rating.

Listen to the album, here, before it hits the shops on Monday. Simply click on the links.
