Thurston Moore Details

The Echo Presents
Thurston Moore
with Sebadoh

Thurston Moore has been at the forefront of the alternative rock scene since that particular sobriquet was first used to signify any music that challenged and defied the mainstream standard. He is the founder and ringleader of Sonic Youth, the band that turned on an entire generation to the value of experimentation in rock n’ roll – from it’s inspiration to a nascent Nirvana to the their own Daydream Nation recording being chosen by the USA Library of Congress for historical preservation in the National Recording Registry in 2006.

Thurston records and performs in a cavalcade of disciplines from free improvisation to acoustic composition to black/white metal/noise disruption. Along with his musical world he is involved with publishing and poetry, teaching writing annually at Naropa University, Boulder CO, a school founded by Allen Ginsberg and Anne Waldman in 1974.

The Best Day is the first solo record since Thurston’s Demolished Thoughts (2010) with both the dynamism of thrashing electric guitars and blissful 12-string acoustic ballads. Most of the tracks feature Thurston’s current London-centric line up of James Sedwards (guitars), Deb Googe (of My Bloody Valentine, bass) and Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth, drums). A few tracks feature all instrumentation by TM and a few others were recorded in the USA during 2012-13 before TM’s relocation to London England.

Sebadoh
Legendary indie rock pioneers Sebadoh have announced the release of their first new LP in 14 years. Sebadoh, the longtime project of Lou Barlow, Jason Loewenstein, and Bob D’Amico, has signed with Joyful Noise Recordings and will re-emerge with the full-length album “Defend Yourself” on September 17th. “Defend Yourself” marks a return to the self-recorded DIY ethos of early Sebadoh albums (“Sebadoh III,” “Bakesale”), and material from the “Defend Yourself” sessions has been hailed as commensurate with Sebadoh’s finest moments. Effective immediately, the band is releasing a precursor to this LP, known as the “Secret EP.”
