Long a proprieter of beautiful noise, Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore has turned in decidedly quieter efforts for his solo releases (the song-based ones, anyway). His latest, Demolished Thoughts, was produced by Beck, but before you go getting all Midnight Vultures, the subdued, string and acoustic guitar-heavy texture is actually a lot more Sea Change.
Meanwhile, here's the atmospheric new video for "Circulation," directed by Rose Mackey.
Saturday, July 23rd finds Moore at the Aladdin Theater with no slouch of a headliner of an opener in Kurt Vile & the Violators (he of the new video we featured last week), as well as Hush Arbors. The date comes in the midst of a fairly brief, mostly West Coast tour, which means you'll be able to gloat to long lost friends and relatives in the midwest if you attend, doubly so if you do it for free. So, wanna go with a pair of tickets on us? All you have to do is send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with THURSTON in the subject line, and do so before 2pm on Tuesday, July 19th. Please note this a 21+ show. We'll pick winners at random and email them with the good news! Good luck!
