Ethereal Echoes: Laetitia Sadier Joins Thurston Moore

The Sonic Youth Co-Founder Strikes Again

Thurston Moore, forever etched into the fabric of alternative rock as a co-founder of Sonic Youth, is back with his ninth solo album, Flow Critical Lucidity, set to drop on September 20 through Daydream Library Series. Featuring the ethereal vocals of Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier on the track “Sans Limites,” the album already hints at a mesmerizing journey. Listen to the track below.

An Ensemble of Legends

Moore’s first release since Screen Time assembles a veritable dream team of musicians.
