40 favourite songs of the Nineties, #40: Sonic Youth, "Karen Koltrane"


All the reasons I had for not making Sonic Youth my New Favourite Band seem daft now, so I'm declaring them my new New Favourite Band. (Sorry, Klezmatics.) Look, no band besides Ellington's has been non-stop brilliant for longer. Though they're an albums band, they can't help but produce the occasional standout track, and this, their sagest Karen konsideration, is a fitting farewell to their Youth. Noise as meditation.
