Chelsea Light Moving


The self-titled debut by Chelsea Light Moving, one of Sonic Youth vocalist-guitarist Thurston Moore’s new groups, ends with a vicious, bloodthirsty cover of the Germs’ “Communist Eyes.” And while that’s the most kinetic expression of Moore’s mania, in light of his other band’s indefinite hiatus, the rest of the album sounds a bit like a more aggro take on his alma mater: One song’s chorus goes “too fucking bad,” and another is about a hippie massacre. And, judging from their New York debut last September, they hold none of that aggression back live. With Prana-Bindu and Marco Fusinato.
