Lee Ranaldo has joined Bandcamp and toe celebrate the Sonic Youth guitarist has shared three rare releases on the platform, which you can hear below.
It follows a band swell of content on the site as Sonic Youth have recently been uploading some live recordings as well as some rarities on to the platform. Thurston Moore has also been putting up previously unreleased material.
The now solo artists Ranaldo has followed his former band’s lead and has joined the streaming platform. He’s done so with three new rare releases, including one jewel-encrusted cover.
First up, is DEMONS: MUSIC FOR STAGE AND SCREEN, which was originally a 2004 limited CD release in Switzerland. Ranaldo has also shared Scriptures of the Gloden Eternity, a collection of live solo recordings which was originally released as an LP in 1993.
The final release is from the 1995 Hanatarsh tribute album and sees Ranaldo take on the cover of Hanatarash’s ‘My Dad Is Car’. It’s one hell of a cover that may have been lost without Ranaldo joining the platform.
