New MP3s: Sonic Youth, "Sacred Trickster" and Dinosaur Jr., "I Want You to Know"

Still trying to get my bearings this week, so I figured I'd toss up a few new MP3s available on the web. Neither of these bands have tour dates scheduled in town -- and really, I'm about ready to start passing the hat for Dinosaur Jr. to finally get here -- but these new tunes should satisfy.

Up first is Dino Jr's "I Want You to Know," which comes from the upcoming, Jagjaguwar-released album, Farm. Really, there is no way this song should be so good and so addicting, but it is. Stoner-fuzz, killer riffs and J. Mascis' inimitable vocals are all in full effect. Sonic Youth's tune is equally vibrant. Culled from The Eternal, which is out June 9 on Matador Records, it's a two-minute blast of Kim Gordon-fronted fury.
