"This is my song for the resistance." Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo gives fair warning before launching into "Thrown Over the Wall" - a song decrying the modern political landscape. Ranaldo's voice and guitar playing on both tracks demonstrate the intensity and sense of urgency that have always been at the heart of his music. At a time when our culture is not exactly overflowing with demonstrations of courage and clear-eyed honesty, these songs feel especially important and necessary.
