They were recently at the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, l and we ran the video along some great other coverage from Beats Per Minute, who ran a review and photos from the show, as well as more videos from the show.
Spacelab writer Jeff Daily reviewed the album, saying "The thesis of Thurston seems to be, "dispense with any pretense of pretty noodling." The riffs on the album are volatile and easily some of the grungiest ever laid down by a Moore band. The influence of today's 90s-nostalgia may have crept into Moore's songwriting, or maybe the climate of thousands of DIY noise freaks with Bandcamp pages sending out feedback fried streams inspired him to plug in and jam recklessly. Who the F cares, this is a damn fine record. The best non-Sonic Youth, SY album yet etched into wax, Chelsea Light Moving fits alongside latter-day Youth as another example of why guitars are great instruments," Read the full review.
