Lee Ranaldo’s second post-Sonic Youth album, Last Night On Earth, will be released October 8 on Matador. Meanwhile he’s given us a second preview with the release of “Ambulancer,” a track that shows off the album’s psychedelic sound.

When this song started out, on acoustic guitar, the riff that I began with reminded me of Neil Young’s ‘Ambulance Blues’ in some way – which is a song I love dearly,” Ranaldo told Rolling Stone. “It’s turned out nothing like that but that initial spark carried over into the finished lyrics.”
