Thurston Moore recently announced that he’s started a new band — called, simply, The Thurston Moore Band — with Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine bassist Deb Googe and Nought guitarist James Sedwards. And on Oct. 21, Moore will release The Best Day, his first album with that band, via Matador Records.
A press release states that the album will feature Moore’s “signature thrashing electric guitars as well as blissful 12-string acoustic ballads.” So, it sounds like it’s a rock ‘n’ roll album, at least on some level. Have a listen to the title track from the album below, and check out the tracklist too, while you’re at it.
Thurston Moore The Best Day:
