Lee Ranaldo was one of Sonic Youth's more subtle creative forces.
A pervasive influence on the seminal group, his solo work has broadened to tackle its own colours and hues.
New album 'Electric Trim' is set to arrive early next year, and it was recorded in New York by Lee and Spanish multi-instrumentalist Raul ‘Refree’ Fernandez.
The material has been road tested, with the guitarist stopping off in a New York hotel recently to shoot a session with La Blogotheque.
Clash is able to premiere a new clip from the session, and it features the title cut 'Electric Trim' recorded in sparse, intimate acoustic surroundings.
Languid, poetic, and forever-engrossing, this performance of 'Electric Trim' is a wonderful insight into an artist whose work contains its own quiet resonance.
Tune in now.
