Turns out Thurston Moore’s upcoming collaborative album with Yoko Ono and Kim Gordon isn’t his only project in the works. The (former?) Sonic Youth member has also formed a new band, Chelsea Light Moving, which comprises guitarist Keith Wood, bassist Samara Lubelski, and drummer John Moloney.
According to Matablog, Moore was inspired by writer William S. Burroughs: “After sitting in the orgone box planted in Burroughs back yard of Lawrence, Kansas in the midpoint of the 1990s, Moore came to the realization that at some point hed need to form a band that played Burroughs Rock.” Appropriately, the first track to surface is called “Burroughs” and comes from a session recorded in Western Massachusetts last spring.

Chelsea Light Moving will soon release their debut album through Matador Records. In the meantime, they’ll play a trio of shows in Montana and Colorado next month. Find all the specifics below.
