Last month Sonic Youth announced a new album was in the works--well, a new old album at least. Smart Bar - Chicago 1985 is a re-mastered compilation of live songs from their August 11, 1985 show at Chicago's Smart Bar, featuring material from 1985's Bad Moon Rising, pre-EVOL performances of "Secret Girl" and "Expressway to Yr Skull," and other rarities like a never before released live version of "Kat 'N' Hat."
As a teaser for the album (due out Nov. 14), stream one of the tracks below.
“Intro/Brave Men Run (In My Family)”
Originally recorded on 4-track cassette, the Smart Bar - Chicago 1985 will be available in digital, CD, and double LP vinyl formats from the band's label, Goofin' Records. [CoS]
