UNDER THE RADAR: Lee Ranaldo – “New Thing”.
Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo is releasing a solo album in September called Electric Trim. “New Thing” is the latest song off the album and features vocals from Sharon Van Etten. The video for the song was directed by Naomi Yang, of Galaxie 500, and features Ranaldo walking through the city completely absorbed in a large, outdated computer. An excellent commentary on our current technology obsession. Electric Trim will be released September 15 via Mute.
