The latest release from Thurston Moore is a testament to the expanse of his sonic empire and the sheer force of his capabilities in orchestration. With just three tracks clocking in at a staggering two and a half hours, Spirit Counsel guides, thrusts, and jostles listeners through a jungle of space and time.
The oil-painted landscape of Spirit Counsel layers its textures and tones, and is a natural progression for Moore, whose body of work both as a founding member of Sonic Youth as well as an established solo artist bends the lines of genres and exposes their highs and lows. Fans of Sonic Youth will be pleased to find the unmistakable, grinding assault of instrumentation that defines Moore’s style, while those seeking a more refined approach may approach the silky chord and theme progressions with a mature ear.
CHIRP is excited to host the Thurston Moore Group at The Empty Bottle for two shows on December 12th and 13th. Doors open at 9pm, and tickets are still available for Thursday’s event. Contact The Empty Bottle with inquiries about tickets for Friday's sold-out show.

On the third day of Pitchfork, my true love gave to me: dancing with my friends, no brief evacuation and no warning of a heat advisory.
In the early afternoon of the Sunday of Pitchfork 2019, I got off the red line at Jackson to transfer to the pink line. At this particular CTA station, the escalator had stopped working and was blocked off, with a sign that said “We’re restoring your escalator!” Every time I see this, of course, I am reminded of the Mitch Hedberg "sorry for the convenience" joke. It was still raining when I got to the Ashland pink line stop, despite the fact that the forecast said only a 15% chance of rain. Surely this will add a fine muddy texture to everything.
