Glacial is Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), David Watson (Afternoon Saints), and Tony Buck (The Necks). The vinyl edition of the album presents the studio session in two twenty-one minute installments. The album is accompanied by a download coupon for DRM-free MP3s of the complete 48 minute studio session as well as three live bonus tracks.
“on jones beach reflects three men at the top of their craft. recorded in 2005 at sonic youth’s echo canyon studios, the album proper is made up of a single titular piece that runs almost 48 minutes. what’s stunning is how the trio appears, in that time, to charter a tour of the last 40+ years of guitar-based psychedelic improv. you’ve got your supremely stoned ambient drone, your slack-stringed doom metal guitar minimalism, your groovy post-Branca skronk, your devotional new thing-indebted bleats and tantrums. more impressive than the amount of ground covered during this running time is the fact that these players can make these elements blend so seamlessly and so completely artfully.
