There's an update on studio progress from Sonic Youth - the new album, which might be called The Eternal, should be ready at the start of June.
Thurston Moore apparently said this:
"Our focus right now is a record replete with juicy supersonic songs!"
- which does have the unfortunate effect of making him sound like someone in an office who calls everyone "sire" or "good madam" for comic effect. Let's hope it's just all the good stuff has gone into the record.
