Published Mar 11, 2011Following some initial reports late last year that Sonic Youth luminary Thurston Moore would be unleashing a new solo LP with Beck behind the boards, we now have some firm release details. On May 24, Moore will drop the Beck-produced Demolished Thoughts via Matador.
The album was recorded in L.A. and Northampton, MA last year, with the press release stating, "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."
Along with Beck, the album features other guests such as violinist Samara Lubelski (Tower Recordings, Metabolismus), harpist Mary Lattimore (Kurt Vile) bassist Bram Inscore and drummer Joey Waronker. Apparently, Beck also does a bit more than produce on Demolished Thoughts, but it's unclear if he's provided extra vocals or just some added instrumentation.
There is no tracklisting or teaser track yet for the album, but you can see the cover to Demolished Thoughts above.
