Sonic Youth - Bad Moon Rising album FLAC

Bad Moon Rising is the second studio album by American rock band Sonic Youth, released in March 1985 by Blast First and Homestead Records. The album is loosely themed around the dark side of America, including references to obsession, insanity, Charles Manson, heavy metal, Satanism, and early European settlers' encounters with Native Americans.

Sonic Youth followed their first full LP, Confusion Is Sex, with a pitch-black, punishing take on Americana titled after, of all things, a Creedence Clearwater Revival song. The newly reissued Bad Moon Rising is their most explicitly sexual album, and among their darkest, exploring the collision of America's obsession with death with the hopeful ecstasies of the hippie generation. On their first LP Confusion Is Sex, Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore, and Lee Ranaldo established their essed, acerbic, in thrall to subversion and half in love with nihilism.

Bad Moon Rising" was Sonic Youth's third album, preceded by the "Death Valley '69" 7" single in 1984 which featured demo versions of both "Death Valley" and "Brave Men Run" from Bad Moon Rising. Unlike 1983, Sonic Youth rarely performed in 1984, instead focusing on creating what would become "Bad Moon Rising". In fact, I only know of 7 gigs in '84 (which doesn't mean there weren't more), the first taking place in May and featuring the entire album in full, sans "Death Valley '69" ("Satan is Boring" was in its place at the time).

Bad Moon Rising is the second studio album by the American alternative rock band Sonic Youth, released on the New York independent record label Homestead Records in 1985. The album is loosely themed around the dark side of America, and includes references to obsession and insanity, Charles Manson, heavy metal, Satanism and early European settlers' encounters with Native Americans.

Bad Moon Rising " displays Sonic Youth 's more Noise, No Wave, Avant-Garde etc talents. On this record they made some of the most insane and intense songs I've ever heard, which is mainly due to the groundbreaking guitar skills of Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, who would tune their guitar's into unorthodox tunings and play slide guitar with drumsticks and screwdrivers to create interesting as well as eerie sounds  . Gordon has a very tortured voice on this album, which gives the impression that she is vulnerable, and someone the listener can relate to more, as opposed to Moore 's madman character.
