Lee Ranaldo and the Dust

[LEE’S TRIP] Now that it looks like Sonic Youth has really broken up, it’s easier to peg guitarist Lee Ranaldo: He’s the classic-rock one. Ranaldo’s second solo album since the split, Last Night on Earth, recorded with his backing band the Dust, hits a familiar note. It’s filled with the same elastic solos and poetic wordplay as his jams on the last few SY records. That’s not a bad thing. Ranaldo has a gift for writing long songs that drift more than they jam, and Last Night on Earth’s dusky feeling evokes the languid Crazy Horse material more than, say, Wilco. Plus, with Steve Shelley on drums, this might be one of the last chances we have to see half of Sonic Youth onstage together. *Cries into keyboard*
