New Video – Uncle Skeleton

LEE RANALDO

UNVEILS NEW VIDEO – UNCLE SKELETON

NEW ALBUM, ELECTRIC TRIM, OUT NOW

 

EMBARKS ON A US TOUR THIS WEEK

EUROPEAN TOUR IN 2018

DOCUMENTARY FILM PREMIERE DETAILS

 

“… his finest solo LP” – MOJO ****

“… a welcome return” – Q

“… some great surprises” – Uncut *******

“Those seeking both instant gratification and the added pleasure of discovering more layers with every listen will appreciate Ranaldo’s latest.” – The Wire

Watch the brand new video for ‘Uncle Skeleton’, taken from Lee Ranaldo’s latest album, Electric Trim, out now on Mute: https://youtu.be/_CJu59bP9vI

 

Ranaldo explains, “The tune for ‘Uncle Skeleton’ put me in mind of those dusty old cowboy ballads that ‘60s bands often psychedelicized. In particular I had Papa John Phillips’ ‘Me and My Uncle’ in my head, a track that was covered by the Grateful Dead and others. An early video of Joni Mitchell (then still Joni Anderson) performing the song on some old Canadian TV show stuck with me and informed the tune I as I worked on it. The verses were mostly written with Jonathan Lethem, my collaborator throughout the Electric Trim album. At first his sheet of lyrics didn’t make any sense to me, but they seems to drop into the tune like they were designed exactly for it. Only later did I learn that his lyrics about stripping the flesh off the bones came directly out of the pages of his most recent book, ‘A Gambler’s Anatomy’. The video was created by Elisa Ambrogio, visionary singer/guitarist of the band Magik Markers.”

 

This week, Lee Ranaldo begins his tour across North America with dates into November before embarking on a European tour starting on 16 February in Barcelona – full details below.

 

The feature length documentary, HELLO HELLO HELLO : LEE RANALDO : ELECTRIC TRIM tracks the making of the album by filmmakers Fred Riedel and Jerry Fried. The documentary is currently touring select film festivals in Europe and the US, screenings include Los Angeles tonight, with Lee Ranaldo, Fred Riedel and Jerry Fried taking part in a Q&A, plus the New York premiere at the NYC Doc festival on 12 November and the UK premiere at Doc’n Roll festival in London on 14 November (full details below).

Electric Trim was recorded in New York City and Barcelona in collaboration with producer Raül ‘Refree’ Fernandez and extends the work of Ranaldo’s solo canon, the most recent being his 2013 album, Last Night On Earth.

 

Through his collaboration with Fernandez, Ranaldo moves into some rich new sonic territories and production techniques, experimenting with electronic beats and samples alongside live players.

 

Ranaldo is a co-founder of Sonic Youth, a visual artist, producer and writer. In addition to Fernandez, he worked with several special guests on Electric Trim, including Sharon Van Etten who sings on six of the tracks and duets on ‘Last Looks’ and Kid Millions (aka Man Forever) as well as longtime friend and collaborator Nels Cline (Wilco). In addition, the album features Ranaldo’s band The Dust (fellow Sonic Youth member Steve Shelley, guitarist Alan Licht, and bassist Tim Luntzel).

 

Ranaldo collaborated with award winning New York author Jonathan Lethem (Motherless Brooklyn / The Fortress of Solitude) for lyrics on six of the songs, including ‘Thrown Over The Wall’, and the American artist, Richard Prince, who previously painted the sleeve for Sonic Youth’s 2004 album Sonic Nurse, created the artwork for the album.
