For 2009's Record Store Day, Sonic Youth released two solid 7" splits with Beck and Jay Reatard respectively. They return once again to help celebrate the annual holiday, only this year you can snag reissues of two of their earliest albums which have been out of print for some time. Confusion Is Sex (the bands debut, originally released in 1983 on SST) and EVOL (third album released in 1986, some might say their first classic full length).
Both albums are being put together by Original Recordings Group, are being pressed at RTI and will be 180 gram. Confusion Is Sex will be pressed on white vinyl and EVOL will be pink. Each will be limited to 1,500 pieces worldwide.
April 17th is the day you want to wake up early.
