Your Guitar, It Sounds So Sweet And Clear

Sonic Youth cover The Carpenters for a 1994 tribute album. Thurston Moore and his merry noiseniks eschew the usual noise, walls of detuned guitars and wilfullness for space and texture. You can hear the amps humming, the backdrop of electricity and buckets of atmosphere, big bass piano notes and a whispered vocal about love for a pop star. Sublime.
