Thurston Moore is an American musician best known as a singer, songwriter and guitarist of Sonic Youth. He has also participated in many solo and group collaborations.
In May ‘Demolished Thoughts’, the 4th solo album from Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and the first to be produced by Beck Hansen was released. Recorded in Los Angeles and Northampton, MA this past autumn & winter ‘Demolished Thoughts’ is an equally beautiful and brooding work ; while there’s more than a few tonal similarities to some of your favorite Moore compositions from years past, the execution this time around is nothing short of staggering.
Kurt Vile and the Violators
Kurt Vile is a guitarist and singer from Philadelphia and was previously the lead guitarist in the band The War on Drugs. Vile started playing the banjo at age 14, and recorded his own albums from 2003 to 2007, before Constant Hitmaker and the song "Freeway" made him a buzzworthy name around the Web. After signing with Matador Records, he released Childish Prodigy in 2009 and Smoke Ring For My Halo earlier this year. Vile and his band, The Violators are touring now.
