On his debut solo album, Sonic Youth frontman/guitarist Thurston Moore strips down and condenses the songs, for better or worse

This week we’re revisiting the 1995 debut solo release Psychic Hearts by former Sonic Youth frontman/guitarist Thurston Moore. With a new solo album just released, it’s the perfect time to check out Moore’s first solo outing, with the inevitable comparisons to his (then) full-time gig in Sonic Youth. Shorter, stripped down and condensed songs dominate the album, but is the lack of experimentation a blessing or a curse? Tune in to find out.
