SY / Mats Gustaffson album, new tour dates
July 1, 2004

"The album is titled "Hidros 3" and is written by Mats Gustafsson for Sonic Youth, and performed by Mats, Sonic Youth, our guitar hero Loren Connors, Lotta Mehlin, David Stackenas and Lindha Kallerdahl. Sonic Youth has been our big inspiration since we started Smalltown Supersound, and getting to release this album is like a dream come true. The album contains 9 tracks and 66 minutes of music with some fantastic vocal tracks with Kim Gordon. The artwork for the album is designed by our own Kim Hiorthøy. The CD will be released the 13th of September and is mixed by Mats Gustafsson. The vinyl version will come later and will be mixed by Jim O`Rourke."

Sonic Youth
Sonic Youth, initially comprising of guitarist / vocalists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, guitarist / bassist / vocalist Kim Gordon and drummer Richard Edson, were formed in New York City in 1981. A product of the No-Wave music scene of the late 1970s, the group had their roots in abrasive, experimental music, with Moore and Ranaldo having previously worked with the experimental composer Glenn Branca. The band were joined in 1985 by drummer Steve Shelley, and have now recorded 14 albums together, as well as many side and solo projects. Their work has been consistently challenging and innovative, and they are widely regarded as one of the most intriguing and influential bands of their time.
