Noise rock guitar god Thurston Moore puts down the Jazzmaster and picks up the acoustic guitar for this Beck produced nine-song LP. The tracks—tranquil meditations on love and Orchard St. in Manhattan—feature swooning violins and highlight Moore's oft-overlooked lyrics. That's not to say dude's gone completely folk. Stream the entire collection of finely crafted acoustic-noise jams from NPR now, then buy the album on May 24th.
