From time to time, you may run into a person who just seems to be trying to hard. Not in the context of trying to improve themselves but as in trying to hard to be edgy or shocking or funny. Normally under these circumstances, the insincerity becomes apparent. The shtick runs south far to fast.
Sonic Youth is the opposite. Thurston Moore will never win an award for being the fastest guitar player. Does it matter?? As a whole, they create a style of music in an effortless manner.
Sonic Youth plays music that fits them and they push the envelope by staying true to what they do…not by trying to play like Dragon Force.
Sonic Youth – Incinerate.
