Sonic Youth -- Washing Machine


Written for the Village Voice 1995 Pazz & Jop Poll

"Hello 2015!" Lee Ranaldo screams, somewhat optimistically, near the end of this record, just before they launch us on a sparkling sailing voyage towards that very year. It's like, for the first time, they've really considered their place in our past and, more importantly, in their future. And they like what they see. And if they keep making records this strong and loose, they just might meet themselves on the other side.
