Thurston Moore: Trees Outside the Academy
Buy! - (Ecstatic Peace!)
The 1st solo album in 12 years from the Sonic Youth guitarist is a bit of a surprise. It’s an acoustic-oriented album focusing more on songs than making a heady racket, and by and large it works beautifully. There are some occasional scorching electric guitar leads (courtesy of Dinosaur Jr.’s J. Mascis), but the album features more of Thurston’s rich acoustic playing alongside some gorgeous violin from Samara Lubelski on a stellar set of songs. 8/31/2007 - Don Yates
