Good news! On May 23rd of this already fine year for music, Matador Records will be releasing Demolished Thoughts, the 4th solo album from Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore (5th if you count 1998′s ‘Root’).
It's the first to be produced by Beck Hansen and was recorded in Los Angeles and Northampton, MA over the course of a few months this past autumn and winter.
This from the press release:
Demolished Thoughts is an equally beautiful and brooding work; while there’s more than a few tonal similarities to some of your favorite Moore compositions from years past, the execution this time around is nothing short of staggering. No disrespect to 1995′s ‘Psychic Hearts’ or 2007′s ‘Trees Outside The Academy’ is intended on our part when we promise Demolished Thoughts burnishes Thurston’s rep as a classic songwriter in ways we never anticipated when this album was first being talked about last year.
Also working with Moore on the record are violinist Samara Lubelski (she of prior Moore recordings and touring, her own solo works, Metal Mountains, Hall Of Fame, Tower Recordings and Metabolismus), harpist Mary Lattimore (also heard on Kurt Vile’s latest album Smoke Ring For My Halo), bassist Bram Inscore, drummer Joey Waronker and Beck.
Set Strange Glue status to "excited" now. We should have an MP3 to download very soon for you. Sit tight.
