We here at Vol.1 Brooklyn are admirers of the music of Lee Ranaldo–both his work as a solo artist and his considerable body of work with Sonic Youth. (We talked with him in 2012, in fact.) We’re also quite fond of the writings of Jonathan Lethem. Needless to say, then, we were quite pleased to hear that Ranaldo and Lethem collaborated on several songs for the former’s forthcoming album Electric Trim.
Also contributing to the album? Sharon Van Etten and Kid Millions, which is never a bad thing. Ranaldo’s new song “Circular (Right As Rain)” has a video as well, which you can watch below.
