Sonic Youth have created a new mixtape – it even looks like a tape – which features old demos from earlier record Daydream Nation and a couple of songs from their upcoming record Simon Werner A Disparu. Sonic Youth started 2011 with a midnight set at Hammersmith Apollo which FST’s very own Stephen Smith reviewed for the Line of Best Fit. Hear the mixtape here.
So, this Christmas Sex Beet were due in the studio to record their new LP, but instead they decided to go on a European tour. Over a week after they were due back in England Sex Beet are still in Sweden with their driver and tour opener Jerry Tropicano in prison and no where to go. In hope they make it back and get to finish their new LP Sex Beet have offered a track due for the new record, a gritty cover of Sonic Youth’s Dirty Boots.
