Thurston Moore is the singer, guitarist and songwriter of Sonic Youth.
"Trees outside the academy" is his second solo work released by his own record label Ecstatic Peace.
Don't expect the chaos of Sonic Youth here.
Slower rythms, psychedelic tunes, acoustic guitars, violins and wonferful melodies create a special atmosphere in this record. It reminded me some of the work of Syd Barret! Only "Wonderful Witches" is a speedy rock song following the tradition of Sonic Youth.
J. Mascis, the guitarist of Dinosaur Jr, has a distinctive role here as well as the violinist Samara Lubelski.
This is fascinating music from a really creative artist.
I ordered this vinyl from the record company and i got it by mail. I'm very proud for this, because it was released basically in cd but the Ecstatic Peace released a vinyl edition in limited number of copies.
