Thurston Moore Demolished Thoughts on 2LP + MP3 from Matador
Sonic Youth Leader's 2011 Acoustic (!) Solo Album Produced by Beck
Demolished Thoughts, released via Matador, is the 4th solo album from Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and his first to be produced by Beck Hansen. Recorded in Los Angeles and Northampton, MA this past autumn and winter, with a title culled from The Faith’s “It’s Time,” Demolished Thoughts is an equally beautiful and brooding work.
While there are 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.
Demolished Thoughts burnishes Thurston’s rep as a classic songwriter in ways never anticipated.
In addition to Moore’s guitars and vocals, other players include violinist
Samara Lubelski (Metal Mountains, Hall Of Fame, Tower Recordings, Metabolismus), harpist Mary Lattimore (Kurt Vile’s latest), bassist Bram Inscore, drummer Joey Waronker and Beck.
