Album: The Best Day
. . .
While Thurston Moore started putting out solo albums in 1995, the only one that fully caught my attention in the same way my favorite Sonic Youth records was his fourth one, 2014’s The Best Day, which was kind of an upbeat “fuck you” to the people who were still pissed off that Sonic Youth broke up the way they did.
And because I’m a shallow person, I like The Best Day because Moore essentially put together a band for it that was not so far off from Sonic Youth: a second noise-rock guitarist named James Sedwards, a ringer bassist in My Bloody Valentine’s Deb Googe, and an even more ringer drummer in Sonic Youth’s Steven Shelley.
