Wow! I'm in.
 


On a side note, they (not just The Quietus, but a lotta sites and magazines) should stop using that photo of Thurston every time there's a news item about him. Pic's like six years old now, dammit. I try my best to find images that are, um, "time-correct" for the torrents annoucements thread, and the professionals can't do it? Fuck that!

Thats alot of material, sorta confused by this but I think its going to contain the 12 string electric guitar pieces that they had been performing for the last year or so? There hasn't been any news or social media update as far as I know of him and the band recording new material.

SPIRIT COUNSEL will be released by The Daydream Library Series, a new record label founded in 2018 by Eva Prinz &ThurstonMoore. Daydream Library is distributed by Cargo in Europe and Forced Exposure in North America.

Spirit Counsel
Sonic Youth founder Thurston Moore offers a CD boxset album Spirit Counsel with three compact discs and book. Spirit Counsel is a collection of three extended compositions recorded between 2018-19. This collection represents a period of reflection on spiritual matters, collective musical friendships, and a time and space universally, without words or languages to distract from meditation.
CD 1: Alice Moki Jayne is a new composition from noise guitar explorations honouring Alice Coltrane, Moki Cherry, and Jayne Cortez. These female partners of jazz musicians brought spirituality into the lives and music that has most inspired Thurston Moore. Recorded in Brussels, Belgium in 2019.

CD 2: 8 Spring Street is a personal hommage to Glenn Branca, the title an address is in New York City, the apartment where Thurston first visited his mentor to rehearse. Recorded in London, UK in 2019.

CD 3: Galaxies is an orchestral piece of music, with Moore as conductor and composer. Twelve guitarists are arranged as if one instrument, exploring the vast emotional depths present in twelve strings. Taking inspiration from a poem by Sun Ra ‘Galaxies’ ponders our place in the universe as we stare into imagery offered by satellites via space agencies. Recorded in London, UK in 2018

Book: Spirit Counsel is an artist book edited by Thurston Moore which includes photographs compiled during the process of creating the accompanying musical works and is available exclusively within this boxset.

Daydream Library
In addition to the release of this CD box set, Daydream Library will offer in the coming months three 7-inch vinyl singles each packaged with fanzines edited by Thurston & Eva. The recordings are excerpted from the ‘Spirit Counsel’ sessions and the b-sides include such treats as a Thurston Moore cover of New Order during a recording session in Salford, UK and other delights to be announced! Stay tuned for more...!

This is the shit! "Ceremony", maybe, or something obscure? Either way I'm psyched!

You can already pre-order Spirit Counsel from Cargo Records (£21.49). Forced Exposure doesn't have it listed yet. Do we have a release date?

Thank you. Good date - IPD and it gives me time to come up with the coins considering I'm currently broke. :)

You're getting too far ahead! :) Can't even pre-order it from Forced Exposure thus far. And we don't know more about the three 7-inchers yet either.

these are indeed SBD recordings, they originate from Wolfgang's Vault.

- Link to all SY (-related) goodies that they have there: https://www.wolfgangs.com/search.html?t=Sonic%20Youth
- Link to the complete Bridge School Benefit of 1991: https://www.wolfgangs.com/playlists/1249432.html
- (and if you've never hear of the Bridge School Benefits, go here or here)

But on that Wolfgang's site you can only stream 30 second per track for free. You need to pay way too much of money if you want to stream the full tracks, and you can't download them as far as I'm aware. Apparently the Paste magazine has some kind of partnership so that they can stream the full songs.

Toxa 08.16.2019 04:06 PM

it's pretty easy to download both tracks from pastemagazine using browser tools ;-)

The Soup Nazi 08.28.2019 08:14 PM

Well, at least in the U.S. the release date seems to be September 27. You can now pre-order it from Forced Exposure, or, if you must, Darth Bezos' Empire. (I imagine it's "pre-available" from other stores as well).
