^ Well, that's pretty unconventional, and for me at least, playing it once or twice may prove sufficient. Listening to it I found myself becoming concerned about Thurston Moore's vocal chords, even though I know they are not remotely my business.

My top favorite is Murray Street though, which is definitely another good choice for that kind of stuff, although not as drawn out and krauty as a Thousand Leaves. Still has a good bit of low key acid numbers.
^ "krauty"

After four pages about Sonic Youth and one last thanks to Mondo and OH, perhaps it's time to bid them a reluctant farewell and move on to:-

Song #7 : Galaxie 500 - 4th of July (1990)



^ This starts well and has some nice guitar playing, but mainly at the end of the song, where it fades out just as it gets interesting. I quite liked the poppy background vocals, not so much the lyrics though; what is it about some rhymes that are too close for their own good? Smile-Style and Sleep-Peep sound kind of clumsy to me. It's as if the writer pounces on a rhyme then works out a line with a meaning that more or less fits in. With good lyrics, it feels like the other way round: the rhyme occurs by happy coincidence as the writer works out his meaning. Does anyone else ever notice a distinction like that between lyrics?

It probably suffers from following on from Sonic Youth, but overall I found this to be a pleasant but undistinguished record, even though, reffing an earlier G500 album, “Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore has cited Galaxie 500's album Today as "the guitar record of 1988". Perhaps Galaxie 500 have some better material elsewhere in their short discography.

Alright, this is great and we deal with another figure from alternative scene I have a high respect for, Dean Wareham.
After Galaxie 500, he started a project named Luna.
Here my favorite song:

I also love this cover of "Bonnie & Clyde" from Serge Gainsbourg:

Well, Luna was interesting, but not what I was expecting based on Galaxie 500, and Hanatarash's performance was kind of bewildering to me, so I'm not sorry to move on to....

Song #8: Garbage - Only Happy When It Rains (1995)



^ Best song title so far, and the only song of the nine that features a girl singer. Nice noisy guitars, which nonetheless pause long enough for the singer to deliver the title line, this seems like a very well-designed song with something for both pop and rock fans. I liked this song - especially the line that taunts the weather; "Pour your misery down on me." I hope I remember those words next time I'm enduring wet London.

Yeah, it's a great band. I don't know which one is my fave album, if Bleed Like Me or Beautiful Garbage.

But this is probably my favorite song.

I know how much you love it when I make superficial comparisons, but sometimes I really don't have anything profound to say. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Shirley Manson and Saffron are practically wearing the same dress! I know what you're going to say: Safron's dress is red while Shirley's dress is more like magenta. Luscious Jackson also sings about rain.

^ That track's ok, but I think OH chose a song that's more instantly likeable tbh.

^ HaHa! Your posts often have something unexpected about them, so I'm always curious to read them, Neapolitan.
On the matter of the dress, isn't it of such simple design that many women across the world have one in their wardrobe? I can imagine Jackie Kennedy, Sandie Shaw or Blondie all wearing something similar too.

And here we are at the last official song for this thread:-

Song #9: Yo La Tengo - Tom Courtenay (1995)



^ Well, I know that WWWP likes this band, but I'm not hearing much of interest on this track, even though OH has selected "one of the most perfectly realized pop tunes in their repertoire" (AllMusic review).
More than the music, I'm curious about the Spanish band name and the fact that this song is about a Brit actor best know for his part in movies made in the sixties.



^ Julie Christie and Tom Courteney in Billy Liar, made at a time when the Brit film industry was going through a minor renaissance with a handful of movies that had in common a kind of low-key down-to-earth realism. In retrospect, it was a commendable movement that took a serious look at adult life and its problems: from memory, other movies of the genre were Cathy Come Home, Room At The Top and This Sporting Life. But why are Yo La Tengo singing about actors from back then, I wonder ?
