Following Thurston Moore’s 2011 solo show at Henry Miller Library, and After the rather sudden dissolution of Sonic Youth’s disbandment which went public. Moore one of  Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” list, released some of the best work of his career with the Beck-produced album Demolished Thoughts. The Best Day features more face-melting guitar solos, with the 10-minute-plus “Forevermore” as exhibit A.

There were thoughts of how the various members would channel their creative output. After the founding of new band Chelsea Light Moving, Thurston Moore returned to what has been a small but incredibly rewarding outfit under his own name. The first release The Best Day feels like some of the best of Moore’s later-period Sonic Youth writing filtered through a more independent lens and the result is a record that stands on par with some of the best of his late band’s later work.
