Thurston Moore’s New Album with Long Songs

Source: PopMatters.

Spirit Counsel is not for the attention-span challenged, and none of its tracks will fit very easily into your workout mix. It requires most of an afternoon to get through in one go, and though all three pieces present the electric guitar in a varied, engrossing light, there are no words to build an imaginary narrative around. “I just felt like I wanted to do long-form compositions,” says Moore. “I wanted to focus on the music without having any verbiage.”
