|The great Thurston Moore has announced his new band, CHELSEA LIGHT MOVING and they willÂ release a self-titled album on Matador Records on March 4th.
Of course this is pretty exciting stuff. Thurston has been bending guitars into all sorts of great sonic shapes for years so where he takes it now is very enticing!
Listen:Â Empire Of Time â MP3
CHELSEA LIGHT MOVING areÂ the current group led byÂ Sonic YouthÂ founderÂ Thurston Moore. He is the songwriter and plays over-amped hyper electric guitar and sings with raw-glam-destructo vocals. The band is a four piece featuringÂ Samara Lubelski, who has played violin with TM on his last two solo LPs (Demolished ThoughtsÂ andÂ Trees Outside The Academy) and withÂ CHELSEA LIGHT MOVINGÂ plays deep psyche pop metal bass guitar.Â Keith Wood, who records under the aegisHush Arbors, plays electric guitar with a pick forged from angel wing andÂ John Moloney, aka âPegasusâ, approaches the drums like an asteroid hurtling toward Earth. The first CD self-titled was recorded in two spurious sessions with engineer Justin Pizzoferrato in Sone Lab, a killer studio in Easthampton MASSACHUSETTS. The band is ready to detonate any birthday party, wedding or hullaboo in any country, planet or stratosphere that doesnât support right wing extremist NRA sucking bozo-ology.
