- Thurston Moore Premieres New Song “Mx Liberty” on SoundCloud
- A guitarist of Sonic Youth, Thurston Moore premiered a new song "Mx Liberty" on SoundCloud. Originally, the song was recorded during the session of his latest solo album "Rock N Roll Consciousness" last year. About the song, he said, "A punk rock broadside to the current man-boys of the USA government in response to their mockery of democracy."
"Mx Liberty" will appear on a new 7" single, which is out on February 19. For the B-side, Thurston Moore recorded a cover of “Panik,” a 1977 track from the Parisian punk band Metal Urbain.
For "Rock N Roll Consciousness", he reunited with his backing band for The Best Day on a mystically inspired set of songs.
He told Rolling Stone about the new album, "I have some edgier, more direct protest songs. I stripped them out of the record because they were upsetting what I thought was the true energy of the record, which to me felt beatific. It's definitely going to be a summer in extreme opposition to the war pigs."
Also he teamed up with This Heat’s Charles Hayward for the experimental album "Improvisations" during recording the "Rock N Roll Consciousness" last year.
