While Sonic Youth don't say a word about their future, their members are more than active on other fronts. Lee Ranaldo announced his return to solo activity in November, this time shoving his usual noise, spoken word and post-jazz improv explorations aside and instead placing his bets on pop. The album will be out on 20th March on Matador. Days before its release, you can already stream “Between The Times And The Tides” , courtesy of Exclaim. Guest musicians are, among others, Nels Cline ( Wilco), former Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert, keyboardist John Medeski (Medeski Martin & Wood) and bassist Irwin Menken.
