Thurston Moore Psychic Hearts on 2LP

Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore's 1995 solo debut, Psychic Hearts, is available again in a deluxe double-LP vinyl edition on the band's own Goofin' label. In addition to Moore on guitar, bass, and vocals, the album features guitarist Tim Foljahn (Two Dollar Guitar) and Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley on drums. For this reissue, the fourth album-side also contains five bonus tracks.

It's inevitable that Moore's solo debut would sound similar to Sonic Youth, considering how integral his guitar playing and singing are to the band's sound. What is surprising about Psychic Hearts is how Thurston twists his standard lexicon of detatched vocals, dissonant guitar lines and deliberately obscure musical/lyrical references into something resembling pop music, which is something Sonic Youth wouldn't truly explore as a band until years later.

Fourteen of the album's 15 tracks are built around concise, angular guitar hooks complemented by Moore's unashamed, nearly melodic vocals. Psychic Hearts displays a softer, more reflective side of a musician known for his passion for disguising his emotions and ideas in noise, and it also offers just a glimpse at the direction Sonic Youth would eventually reinvent themselves with.
