Sonic Youth co-founder Thurston Moore released one of my favorite all-time songs last year. Called ‘Speak To The Wild’, it’s from Moore’s solo album The Best Day and it’s eight minutes of just plain gorgeous. A haunting melody, awesome guitar riffs, riffs that almost chime like bells, and Thurston Moore’s incredibly raw vocals.
And, if the song itself wasn’t simply amazing enough, the video Thurston Moore released after it is even cooler. Centering around cult-like figures, as it does.
That’s why Thurston Moore’s ‘Speak To The Wild‘ is my Repeat Rotation Video today. As I’m in the mood for awesome, and this hits every possible spot.
Watch the fabulous video below, and then listen through again (and again) with headphones on and eyes closed. It’s gloriousness magnified and beyond.
