Just as it is a bunch of 60ies Easy listening it's quite notable how mid-range-heavy those old strereo-mixes were. Should I say mixes? maybe "mastering" would be the right term to put.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/11/14 9:47am Marcel M:

@BOB: Malls hit Europe in a big(er) way around when she left and most people still don't really go to them. Its part of that American suburban sprawl imagery so she wanted to check it out. She expected it to be bad but we all had this image that it would be kinda fun. It just wasn't the same without the deeper Jersey experience of getting stuck in traffic on Route 4 and then experiencing the wonders of a massive mall parking garage hehe.

I go to them for the movies, and also the Women's Talbots - normal looking clothes in insane colors.

Also, a mall that is indeed kinda fun is Water Tower Place in Chicgao. everything is transparent - the floors outside of stores, the elevator. I say kinda because while I was admiring the architecture, I also have a ridiculous fear of heights.

Growing up in NJ I also thought that Highways were littered with stores and restaurants everywhere else in the country. I would drive out to 17 from the city with friends from elsewhere and they would always be amazed by the strip mall paradise along the way...

I do have to say there have been a couple of times folks have visited me and wanted to see the mall of america -- and they seem very disappointed that it's just A REALLY BIG MALL. Not some transcendent commondity experience, or even a Vegas-style refracted spectacular-consumptive wonderland.

My friends and I were actually just last night complaining about how Sonic Youth has usurped so many things. Not their fault or a legit complaint against them, but since they are pretty mainstream, a lot of their sounds are attributed to being quite unique to them, when in face, wise WFMU listeners like us, know they are not.

SY were just a bit past early adopters. They seemed to be good popularizers. If you look at Thurston interviews (as he was the trendiest of them), they broke Phillip K Dick to a lot hipsters in '87, free jazz in the early 90s, etc.

this was an excellent record that should have gotten more attention, and not just because Katie was in the band. :D
