Thurston Grows "Trees" This Fall

It seems that this man never has a day to rest. Fresh on the heels of last week's reissue of Sonic Youth's masterpiece Daydream Nation, Thurston Moore has announced the details of his second solo LP. Due September 18 on his own Ecstatic Peace imprint, Trees Outside The Academy features a dozen new Moore compositions that are slightly varied from the loud explosions of feedback that we're normally used to hearing come from him. Using primarily acoustic guitar, bass, violin and drums (from Sonic drummer Steve Shelley,) Trees also features contributions from J Mascis (who graciously let friend Thurston track the album at his home studio with long time collaborator John Agnello) and Christina Carter, who lends her vocals to the uber minimal sparseness that is "Honest James."

Here's a vid where you'll here Thurston track
Tree songs "Never Day" and "The Shape Is In A Trance." Oh, and Thurston getting the hair trimmed and wife Kim Gordon approving:

Man .. that "Never Day" can be a huge hit.
