Demolished Thoughts

Demolished Thoughts by Thurston Moore
Released: May 2011
Label: Matador
Demolished Thoughts may just be Thurston Moore's Sea Change -- an apt comparison, since Beck himself sat as producer. Moore's noisier ambitions are mostly left in the dust as he strums an acoustic and paints some of his most personal vignettes to date. The album's best supporting characters are Mary Lattimore's harp and Samara Lubelski's violin, soothing and assuring Moore through sleepy hymns ("Benediction," "Illuminine"), giving urgency to his darkest moments ("Circulation," "Mina Loy"), and adding instant drama to his cinematic twists and turns ("Blood Never Lies," "Orchard Street").
