Listen to Thurston Moore’s Demolished Thoughts, and win tickets to see him live next week!

Stepping away from the punk, noise and no-wave experimentalism that often surrounds both Sonic Youth and Thurston Moore’s solo work, Demolished Thoughts will catch most off-guard.

His fourth solo album, Demolished Thoughts is a stripped-down affair, with only guitar, harp, violin and light percussion for accompaniment to Thurston’s vocals. The results are more direct than many woud have expected from Thurston Moore, these songs being sweet, heartfelt and consuming.

Thurston Moore makes a one-off UK appearance at London’s Union Chapel on May 31st. To win tickets to this show, leave a comment here with the answer to this question: Who produced Thurston Moore’s new album Demolished Thoughts?

Competition closes Sunday May 29th. Full terms and conditions can be found below.
