This reminds me quite a bit of Psychic Hearts because it is so sparse

I've found that while I don't actively listen for his lyrics, when I do pick some up by chance (as on Unmade Bed, beautiful song) I appreciate them, which is coming from someone who really can't be fucked listening to words. I've found that his lyrics from Washing Machine to Sonic Nurse are exponentially better than anywhere else in the SY discography, and the words on Demolished Thoughts are certainly more beautifully poetic and heartfelt than anything else he's done. having said that, I'm really not expecting shit from CLM. I'd assumed that it was just his bullshit wannabe beat poet crap.

what is the consensus on this? I'm afraid to listen as it really reeks of a midlife-crisis kind of record. it just seems ridiculous to have a 50+ year old man making hardcore punk songs. the vibe I got from the singles was a beefed-up Psychic Hearts, which is my least favourite solo album of his.

nothing seems midlife-crisis or hardcore to me. just a guy strumming up and down and doing what he sorta does best. why should this be anything special?

Just came back from the show. There's something cool about going to see your favorite musician in the world, and as you walk into the venue, he's sitting down right in front of you eating dinner.

The show was good, but I'm not yet sure how I feel about the CLM songs overall. A few of them were very good, though. Short show, too. Maybe an hour? Only encore was "Staring Statues."

Thurston's banter and storytelling were particularly funny tonight. Very good vibe, overall. I also found it funny that Thurston was wearing a CLM t-shirt. And Talk Normal was an excellent opening act.

I agree.

I enjoy the CLM material. The two new songs he played were kind of short and stupid. They were called "No Go" and "Sunday Stage." There was another song on the set list after "Staring Statues." It was "Pretty Bad" and they didn't play it. The show was too short. Even if they had bothered to play "Pretty Bad," it still would have been too short.

I thought it was cute that he was wearing a CLM tee.

Overall the show for me was kind of just okay. In the beginning there were several minutes of technical difficulties with his tuning pedal, which was kind of annoying.

I liked the solo show he did on February 2nd, 2012 much more than this one. Probably because the material he played then was better.

I actually got a kick out of that, and Thurston's reaction to it. He sort of apologized to the audience, but didn't seem too fazed by it.

I admit it was cute but it killed my anticipation just a little bit.

Definitely a mistake. The LP comes with a 7 inch.

One question and one comment.

Personally I really love the album but the production is bad. Too boomy sounding and waaay over loud like everything nowadays. Not as brickwalled as a lot of stuff but still way off the dynamic range it should be at. I put it through my sound lab and removed that mid-range boomyness, declipped the peaks that are too loud, chopped off that 30 seconds of silence after "Frank O'Hara Hit" and rearranged the track order with "Alighted" more toward the end. MUCH BETTER!

Heavenmetal
Sleeping Where I Fall
Burroughs
Empires Of Time
Groovy & Linda
Lip
Frank O'Hara Hit
Alighted
Mohawk
Communist Eyes

Now, does anybody know who's chatting about the "...mellow scene" etc. inbetween "Empires Of Time" and "Groovy & Linda?"

A few shots from Asheville

Instore:
 


Show:
 


 


At the Instore, they had mic difficulties and proceeded to do a noise jam for like 10 minutes, then Thurston gave some little kid his guitar and let him bash on it while he made noise into the broken mic.

To go or not to go to the show in Hudson, that is the question... glad they added more dates though.

review

by Fred Thomas

The end of Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore's 27-year marriage left Sonic Youth with an uncertain future, and the four compulsively creative members of the band lacking one of their largest outlets for sound. While none of the players had ever been short of side projects, news of the formation of Chelsea Light Moving seemed especially weighty. The first Thurston-fronted rock band in a similar mold as the recently filed away Sonic Youth could either fill the substantial void left by the legendary guitar mutilators or follow Moore's antagonistic noisy tendencies into messy, self-indulgent disappointment. The quartet's self-titled debut of what they've coined as "Burroughs rock" does neither, however. Tracks like "Groovy & Linda" and "Frank O' Hara Hit" rely on the same signature marriage of dissonance and obscure, cloudy-headed pop in Sonic Youth's more aimlessly wandering moments on albums like Washing Machine and Murray Street. Thurston's bohemian poetry scene lyrics are also in rare form, with songs like album opener "Heavenmetal" finding him spouting surreal collaged lines that evoke both heartbreak and joy over one of the album's more subdued guitar patterns. Chelsea Light Moving tend toward heavier zones than most of Moore's rock-based output. Rather than stretching out into extensive chiming guitar meditations, tracks like the blistering "Alighted" sound sludgy, depraved, and listlessly angry. On songs like these a closer parallel could be drawn to Bleach-era Nirvana or the Melvins albums that inspired it than any Sonic Youth material. While Moore's new group is clearly the sound of a band in a room rocking out, fronted by one of America's more legendary noise rock figures, it becomes apparent quickly that the chemistry and interplay between the four members is what made Sonic Youth's sound so densely dreamy and lovingly damaged. Chelsea Light Moving finds Moore in a mode only somewhat removed from his more rock-oriented solo albums, certainly digging in to the wilder side of his multifaceted approach to sound, but stopping before spiraling into grating or overly self-aware histrionics. Chelsea Light Moving doesn't fill the still-warm shoes of Sonic Youth, but it isn't meant to. The album is fun, huge, and pleasantly confused (as evidenced in part by the out-of-place Germs cover that closes the album) but ultimately just another chapter in Moore's lifelong exploration of sound, poetry, and the darkest corners of American subcultures he helped build, and continues to add to.

This is one of my favorite aspects of the record. I have to believe the clipping was intentional. I guess it's just a question of taste.
