Lee Ranaldo's album Electric Trim. Electric Trim was recorded in New York City and Barcelona in collaboration with producer Raül Refree Fernandez and extends the work of Ranaldos 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 Ranaldos 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. American artist Richard Prince, who previously painted the sleeve for Sonic Youths 2004 album Sonic Nurse, created the artwork for the album.
