according to pitchfork media, sonic youth is set to compile an album to be sold at alongside venti non-fat lattes and elton john christmas albums at starbucks. the album is to be comprised of songs favored by celebrities like marc jacobs and jeff tweedy, plus one newly recorded song.

i don't really know what to think of this. i love sonic youth, ever since i saw them play at the el rey--a small venue on wilshire blvd, while stoned out of my mind. however, my feelings about starbucks are not so warm.
