Hear Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) Chat with Ian Williams (Battles) About Cool Stuff

Can’t wait to dig into this new podcast from The Talkhouse featuring Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth chatting with Ian Williams of Battles about, well, some of this stuff below…

The experimental guitar legends shared the unusual processes of making their new LPs (Battles’ Juice B. Crypts came out last week, and Lee’s drops early next year). Their talk also takes in Sonic Youth’s versus Wilco‘s insane touring guitar collections; how a chance encounter with Les Savy Fav led to the first ever Battles show; the cross-genre pollination of 1980s New York; and their thoughts on recently departed icons Ric Ocasek of The Cars and Daniel Johnston.
