Whether intended or not, Ruby Isle (comprising vet Mark Mallman and Dan Geller) is the first band to capitalize on the awesome news that Sonic Youth will be performing Daydream Nation in its entirety during a select few, very special shows this summer. So, no better time to post a cover of Daydream classic “Teen Age Riot.” Ruby Isle stay reverent to the tune’s movement, wrapping the track in a giddy electro pulse.
Sorry Ruby Isle, this post deserves a Thurston pic.
