Thurston Moore's new album, Demolished Thoughts, is unlike his work with Sonic Youth — or his two past solo records. It's clear that Beck, as his producer, guided him in a direction that showcases his poetic lyrics in moody acoustic arrangements. Moore, who read poetry between songs during his Morning Becomes Eclectic appearance, brought a harpist and violinist to accompany him in studio. Together, they brought to life some of the best songs from the album, including "Blood Never Lies."
