Sonic Youth's recent Rather Ripped pulls the maturing band toward a more mellifluous path that doesn't reject their famously splintered tonality but seems a bit more ear-friendly as it addresses a subtler emotional terrain. With the departure of multi-instrumentalist Jim O'Rourke, S.Y.'s now back to their "classic" lineup of guitarists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, bassist-singer Kim Gordon and drummer Steve Shelley. On this tour they perform their just-reissued classic Daydream Nation in its entirety.
