Looks like there will be another Thurston record in September. I'm pretty excited for this one, these new songs sounds pretty cool and they have sonic vibe, don't they?

At least some of the songs are in CGDGCD, there is one song on a new youtube vid where he runs through the harmonics on the 7th and 12th frets and its def in that tuning. The use of the unison Bs is not obvious and by watching him in the vids it appears that the two high strings are more likely in C & D.

Also i figured out that heavenmetal is easier to play in CGDGCD and not CGDGBB, i don't see him using CGDGBB to play that song and he did play it live recently, also on youtube.

If you go to 50:06 you can see Thurston tuning up from the previous new song.

I randomly clicked at 30:10 of that video and was like.."Thurston and Steve are playing Rain on Tin?!" buuuut..nope.

New song sounds good, yet incomplete. I hope Thurston manages to create focused, multi-layered and well-balanced album that contains something to more to explore than CLM album.

It seems there is coming lots of different stuff. Some of the songs reminds me Trees Outside, some psychic Hearts/CLM, some are really noisy. Maybe Thurston wants to put out album where are his every sides?

I understood first there are coming two separate albums, but it seems Detonation has changed to Best Day (like Benediction changed Demolished thoughts). Its of course possible name changes again.

Hey Chris, What tuning do you think "Speak to the wild" is in? You seem to be the master tabber. HAHA
Thanks.

I don't even know what that is! Does somebody want to round up a list of all the post-CLM LP new Thurston tunes (including the ones that CLM were playing on their last tour)? Preferably with youtube links?

The harmonics he picks at the start of the song are definitely CGDGCD.

Guessing he changed the title a la Benediction.

K, I watched this whole video and from what I can tell, the entire main set is in CGDGCD, then he retunes to CGDGBB for the encore. Any tuning he does during the main set is just because they've slipped slightly out.

Is this an accurate set, do we know the names of the 3 other songs?

Song 1 (I Love You Forevermore)
Song 2 (Speak to the Wild)
Germs Burn
Detonation
Song 5 (instrumental)
Heavenmetal
--
Ono Soul

Also, all the Chelsea Light Moving stuff (including "No Go" "Sunday Stage" and "The Ecstasy") is in CGDGBB. "Heavenmetal" seems to be the exception, but that seems to not quite be a CLM song anyway.

I'm knee deep in this shit now, and I guess I have you to thank/blame! I was waiting to just listen to the record but now I'm kinda intrigued by the new Thurston live stuff. Catching up on some of Stu's recordings now!

I'm not sure why I've done this since I won't be adding them to the Chronology, but here are some recent Thurston set lists...I didn't realize he was already doing these newest tunes back in October!

I'm guessing the new album will be:

"That's Why I Love You Forevermore"
"Speak to the Wild"
"Instrumental"
"Germs Burn" (re-recording?)
"Detonation" (re-recording?)

recorded 03/26/14 in London w/ Steve Shelley, James Sedwards, and Deb(?). i suspect they may re-record "Germs Burn" since it has a longer intro/etc now, but he may re-use the existing "Detonation". Who played on the original recordings of "Detonation" & "Germs Burn"?

since those songs are long as hell, add in some Chelsea Light Moving leftovers from last year (possibly even live takes, implied by Thurston?). "Sunday Stage" for sure, not sure about "No Go" and "The Ecstasy".

That's only 8 songs, have we heard of any others? Think he'll re-use "Heavenmetal"? The stuff with Sedwards is pretty long so I can imagine that being the bulk of the record.

I'll bet the instrumental is called "The Best Day".

Damn, I really hope there will be two separated albums. One with stuff like Detonation (which I personally don't like at all) plus the unreleased CLM material, and one with completely new songs like Speak to the Wild and I Love You Forever More, they sound fresh and I thought that Thurston is back with these. But probably we can only wish that there will be two albums coming out this year, eh?
