This one came up on Pandora for me few weeks ago and I thought I was listening to some long forgotten Sonic Youth song that had managed to slip my radar. Much of Decay Decoy could pass as Ranaldo-penned b-sides, and I mean that in the best way possible. The Megaphonic Thrift seem to have moved in a more electronic-tinged direction in the the half decade since “Neues” came out, but the Norwegian ‘gazer’s entire discography appears to be worth delving into anyways.
I’m writing up this post on Saturday morning, so I’m working under the assumption that I’ll enjoy the Beach House show tonight at Mr. Smalls as much as I expect to. So to (preemptively) celebrate, here’s a little something La Blogotheque filmed around the release of 2010’s Teen Dream.
