Since Sonic Youth members Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon separated, the future of the band has been in question. Enter Chelsea Light Moving, the new band featuring Moore and a group of various indie musicians from bands such as Hush Arbors, and Sun Burned Hand of the Man. Is this an answer to the Sonic Youth question, or just another artistic outlet? Their new track can be heard over at Stereogum, and those familiar with the more straight-forward Sonic Youth material will feel right at home.
In other Sonic Youth-y news, Moore is also involved in collaboration with Kim Gordon and Yoko Ono, and they will be releasing a six track album — expect long, winding pieces — titled YOKOKIMTHURSTON in September. I will now begin preparing my body for what could turn out to be the single most avant-garde release of all time. I suggest you do the same.
