The Up-Turn

Thurston Moore has become legendary for his integral role in the integral 80s indie-rock band Sonic Youth.  If you haven’t heard of Sonic Youth you probably wouldn’t be reading a music blog right now so I’ll assume that I don’t need to go further on why Moore is universally considered a musical hero and icon.  Moore is prepping to release a solo full-length this May which will be produced by Beck which many people are very rightly getting hyped for.  The first leak from the album will not only defy what anyone probably expected from a Moore album but will also prove that the hype is well earned.  ‘Benediction’ is everything that people wouldn’t expect to find from Sonic Youth.  There is some country twang, orchestration, acoustic guitar and soft, near whispered vocals.  It’s awesome and the song can be streamed below.
