Watch: Thurston Moore - "Circulation" (Official Video)

Via Matador Records
So yeah, it's a pretty safe assumption that we're huge fans of Thurston Moore and his latest solo album, Demolished Thoughts. We've reviewed it, seen him perform it live at the Music Hall of Williamsburg (and again at Other Music where we were literally a foot away from the man), and even watched him on late-night TV.

Now, via Stereogum and Matador Records' Matablog, we're happy to share the official video for one of my favorite tracks off of Demolished Thoughts, "Circulation." It's an awesomely trippy match for the song itself, and Thurston Moore says the video "was inspired by the free-spirit poet/artist girls of Northampton Massachusetts who would explode and levitate into expressionistic transcendence whenever cool records would spin by local DJs Bill Nace, Jake Meghinsky and, when asked (rarely) – T Moore hisself."

Check it out after the jump and see him on tour through the summer at the dates / locations below, as well as here in NYC on 8/12 at the Williamsburg Waterfront with an under-the-radar band called Sonic Youth.
