THURSTON MOORE: “Screen Time” LP. Released 25th March 2022

Screen Time is a series of instrumental guitar pieces recorded during the summer of 2020 as the world confronted the pandemic shutdown and as the people of good conscious stood up against the oppression of racist police oppression and murder. How much screen time does a parent allow a child? How much screen time does a child need to realise a world which has the means to coexist as a community in shared exchange?
The cover image of Screen Time is of a youngster curled into a book, the pages vibratory with text radiating through the skin, blood and bone – an aspect entirely missing from digital media, though the actuality of transparency in our daily lives through streaming etc we can only hope leads to the awareness of fairness.
Screen Time is in reflection to dream time, a state of meditation, hypnagogia and pillow talk.

“Moore closes with The Realization, 10 minutes of converging light and dark, and one of the finest pieces of music that he has put his name to.”MOJO

“Final track “The Realization” hurls the occasional rock into an otherwise tranquil guitar pool.” UNCUT – 7/10 review.

“The pieces recall TheDurutti Column at their most spectral’’ WIRE

Mastered by Lasse Marhaug for Southern Lord.
