leeranaldovideo1 Video: Lee Ranaldo   Off the Wall

On March 20th, Matador Records will release Between the Tides and the Times, Lee Ranaldo‘s first song-based solo album, featuring a roster of guests that include Nels Cline, John Medeski, Alan Licht and Steve Shelley. Over the next few months, the label will issue several videos to support the release, starting with the previously-heard single “Off the Wall”. Behind chugging-yet-melodic distortion, the Sonic Youth co-founder sings about “uncertain days” and being “half a man trying to get home.” It’s a heart-warming, soul-on-its-sleeve charmer that could fit a number of montage sequences from half a dozen ’90s indie flicks. Combined with performance footage shot at Brooklyn’s Glasslands, in addition to countless other New York outdoor landmarks, it’s not too hard to see why here. Check it out below.

Between the Tides and the Times hits stores March 20th via Matador. Ranaldo’s forthcoming tour itinerary follows.
