The ex-Sonic Youth co-leader Thurston Moore’s got a new album called The Best Day on the way and a new backing band that includes Sonic Youth’s Steve Shelly and My Bloody Valentine’s Debbie Googe. (I’m a little disappointed Moore is still recording with them under his own name rather than using “Pussies Of The Lowest Order” as a band name.) We’ve posted the new album’s title track, as well as footage of the band debuting new song “Detonation” in London. Over the weekend, Moore and his band played Belgium’s Pukkelpop festival, where they played another new one from the forthcoming album. “Forevermore” is a feebacky, krautrock-esque staring-into-infinity mostly-instrumental groove, and at least in its live incarnation, it lasts 13 and a half minutes. Watch pro footage of the band playing the song at Pukkelpop.
The Best Day is out 10/21 on Matador.
