It's called Chelsea Light Moving, and looks like the first official post-Sonic Youth hiatus project that Moore's been involved in (barring a solo release). This is a band proper though, and Chelsea Light Moving includes Samara Lubelski, Keith Wood and John Moloney. They've just announced a new album that’s as-of-yet untitled and has no defined release date, but they've offered up the quirky and noisy new song "Burroughs" to quell the masses until Matador and the band work out the details. The sound is immediate and upbeat and fresh.  This fresh: the song “Burroughs” was recorded at Sonelab in Easthampton, MA just over a month ago.

MP3: Chelsea Light Moving - Burroughs"

The announcement blurb from Thurston Moore & the band says it was heavily under the influence of beat writer William S. Burroughs, saying "After sitting in the orgone box planted in Burroughs’ back yard of Lawrence, Kansas in the midpoint of the 1990s, Thurston Moore came to the realization that at some point he’d need to form a band that played Burroughs Rock. This is the sound of Wild Boys looking to jack hypos of core passion into their veins. Boy on boy. Girl on girl. Start there. It’s not even music – it’s an amphetamine sonnet for the on-the-loose lovers of the world."
