Beck-produced bewitching acoustic reverie from Sonic Youth man

Thurston Moore's 'Demolished Thoughts': Beautiful

Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore has never been constrained by being in one of the planet’s coolest and always-interesting bands.

His new, Beck-produced solo album is the culmination – so far - of his fascination with the acoustic.
