Lee Ranaldo might have been part of Sonic Youth in a former life, but right now the Lee Ranaldo band is all over the world on a tour. They've just released the video for the song "Stranded," which was directed and shot by Kelly Jeffrey. Check him out in Portugal earlier this year in a performance video.
The song is from the album Between The Times & The Tides, and Lee released it on Matador Records in the Spring of this year. Guest appearances include Nels Cline, Alan Licht, John Medeski, bassist Irwin Menkin, SY drummer Steve Shelley, Jim O’Rourke and Bob Bert. "The album is equal parts smart, confident and loose in a manner that recalls some of our favorite rock’n’roll projects…yet sounds like a fantastic new band that was apparently being assembled right under our noses," writes his label, Matador Records.
