Hear New Sound: Chelsea Light Moving's "Burroughs"

Between his solo jaunt nearing its end stages in support of his latest album Demolished Thoughts and the future of Sonic Youth still rather unclear, it appears frontman Thurston Moore needs a new fix to hold him over -- Or perhaps even dedicate himself to full time? Those who know the iconic indie rocker's work well might have guessed that we'd be in store for some ambient, instrumental experimental noise rock efforts, but somewhat surprisingly, Moore has assembled a proper band instead. Chelsea Light Moving is his new crew and features a Western Massachusetts-centric lineup with an LP already imminent for Matador. The quartet has Thurston again up front on the mic and axe alongside Demolished Thoughts touring members Keith Wood (Hush Arbors) and Samara Lubelski (Jackie-O Motherfucker) (who trades in her violin for a bass,) while Sunburned Hand Of The Man's John Moloney rounds up the ensemble by banging on the drums. "Burroughs" is Chelsea Light Moving's debut listen, and unlike Moore's recent mellowed out material, the novelist-homaging track sees the guitar god returning back to his ways of splicing through distortion as his band mates infuse a frantic, loud head rush all around him. Read into the "Burroughs" below...
