One of the things I did in the weeks I was absent was attend the first night of the Pitchfork Music Festival with my best pals Ryan and Lisa. Good times, if you ignore the fact that the sound was way too quiet for a Sonic Youth show. Or any other show for that matter, really. Whatevs. (Yeah, I said it.) They played Daydream Nation in its entirety and that's all that matters.
Before my unplanned sabbatical, I promised a slew of SY covers and today I deliver. The timing seems particularly right since rumor (or should I say rumour?) has it the Guardian mentioned C,R? recently and that, obviously, rules. Welcome to any new readers/listeners!
