the whitey album
reissue of the strange, experimental but thrilling Top-40 tribute album by Sonic Youth’s 1988 alterego.
after hinting that a tribute to the Beatles’ 'White Album' was in the works, the band about-faced & delivered this brain-sick celebration of pop-culture, experimental rock, Neu! & The Material Girl in particular. Besides Kim Gordon's karaoke remake of 'Addicted to Love', little else on this album resembles a normal song. Edgy noise experiments & heavy sound manipulation make these songs more than interesting however, & the emphasis on dance rhythms keeps things from getting too off-kilter.
