PRESS RELEASE – Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore To Release New Solo Album

On Tuesday May 23rd, Matador Records will be releasing Demolished Thoughts, the 4th solo album from Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore (5th if you count 1998′s ‘Root’) and the first to be produced by Beck Hansen.  Recorded in Los Angeles and Northampton, MA this past autumn & winter, Demolished Thoughts is an equally beautiful and brooding work ; while there’s more than a few tonal similarities to some of your favourite 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 reputation as a classic songwriter in ways we never anticipated when this album was first being talked about last year. 

In addition to Moore’s guitars and vocals, other players include 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
