Daydream Nation Daydream Nation eBook È Paperback daydream pdf, nation book, Daydream NationDaydream Nation PDFThere are moments on Daydream Nation when the record s aggregate narratives, boggling sound composites, and distributed energies reach a level of intensity so pitched the whole thing seems to hover on the brink of self implosion These moments, when the record is played at appropriately upsetting volumes, have physical corollaries that often involve shooting waves of alarm up the spine, flushes of energy through the lobes and sternum, lockjaw, palpitations, and visual disorientation If the act of listening to music requires some degree of participatory commitment from the listener, then this record asks for one hell of a commitmentA landmark album for alternative rock, Daydream Nation was the pinnacle of what Sonic Youth had been working towards during their first decade together Ambitious, sprawling and often astoundingly noisy, it s a serious record that somehow never takes itself too seriously Here, Matthew Stearns traces how Sonic Youth reached this point and with the help of the band guides us through the album in a way that s at once informed, inspired, and flat out awestruck.
