Thurston Moore
The Best Day

 

He relaxed, took a breath, and got right back into annihilating anything in his path.

Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Modern Lovers

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

After decades as one of the most unique and consistent bands of their time, Sonic Youth is no more. Recent albums by Kim Gordon (as Body/Head) and Lee Ranaldo felt fresh in comparison to Sonic Youth’s final studio album, The Eternal. Similarly, Thurston Moore’s new album seems to reawaken some magic inside of Moore. It’s Thurston doing what he’s always done best without ever putting it on autopilot. Prickly guitars form icicle patterns, sometimes meditative and others aggressive. The Best Day often feels like a return to vintage Sonic Youth without losing sight of its own original vision. Unlike those often claustrophobic records, this one is more relaxing of an adventure.
