Editorial Reviews

In Spring 2010, Sonic Youth gathered at their Echo Canyon West studio in Hoboken, New Jersey, to watch the rushes of a new film, SIMON WERNER A DISPARU, by French director Fabrice Gobert. They spent the following few weeks recording music which was then shaped as needed to fit the various scenes. For this release, rather than present the small clips of music as used in the film, the band went back in the autumn to the original tapes and reorganized the various pieces for this original soundtrack release, sometimes montaging multiple tracks together, other times extending cues into new sonic realms. The film premiered at Cannes in May 2010 and opened nationwide in France.

If this ends up being Sonic Youth's last record, I think it's appropriate, positive note to go out on.

The music on Simon Werner a Disparu is ranges from pastoral to somewhat menacing, but it is never intrusive. It's not particularly demanding or challenging (at least to a Sonic Youth fan), but avoids being boring and never stays in one place for very long. Imagine a quiet, uneventful rural New England car ride. You stare out the window, watching the trees and telephone wires and pine needles go by, occasionally passing through a small town and looking at old houses and small locally owned convenience stores. Nothing is exciting, but you're not bored with it all. You passively take it all in and remain content. It's almost hypnotic after a while.

Sonic Youth has gone down this path before. The underrated Murray Street album is what comes to my mind first, especially the extended jam on "Karen Revisited". It also reminds me of The Destroyed Room odds-and-ends compilation. I'm thinking that it might be the Jim O'rourke influence, although he only appears once in this recording, playing bass on the last track. This is the first time that it has truly dominated an album's entire running time, with the songs all tied together, uninterrupted and unbroken. It's like a successful extended jam session that leaves everyone happy and tired.

Also, keep an ear out for the lovely minimalist piano in some of the tracks, which makes some moments especially delicate and pastoral.

For decades, Sonic Youth has been everyone's influence. The genre people call "post rock" couldn't exist without them, as they single handedly bridge progressive rock, noise, punk, thrash, and basic rock and roll. However, they have always been a band whose music has had a message, and they have been involved in the world around them politically as much as aesthetically.

This soundtrack is just that: an instrumental record that captures Sonic Youth's core sound and casts atmospheres of anxiety, travel, and crisis without being itself narrative. Although the film the music accompanies may have a hard time penetrating the U.S. and U.K. markets, this soundtrack is fantastic.

once again sonic youth demonstrate that they will never compromise their vision as a band. the sound on this album is so strong you forget that it is a soundtrack for a movie.sonic youth are one of the great bands of rock and roll for all time and are the best post rock band in the world. if you like sonic youth you will enjoy this album.
