Solo Instrumental Album From Sonic Youth Co-Leader On Vinyl LP!

Sonic Youth singer/guitarist Thurston Moore unveiled a surprise collection of 10 ambient instrumental tracks on February 5, 2021. Originally released to stream and download exclusively via Bandcamp, the album is now available on vinyl LP.

You won't get a lot of Sonic Youth vibes out of Screen Time... Instead, it's a collection of 10 instrumentals, seemingly recorded entirely on guitar. Some of the tracks are ominous and clangy. Others are lovely acoustic reveries that recall guitarists like Daniel Bachman and William Tyler. Based on the title alone, I like to imagine that this album is nothing but the idle noodles that Moore picked out while watching Netflix. That's probably not what happened, though.
-Tom Breihan, Stereogum
Seemingly recorded entirely on guitar, the tracks are mostly different variations of minimalist-style music. Some drone on, while others lightly dance. There's 'the home', an offbeat and quirky tune that would suit a Wes Anderson film, but then the entire album closes with 'the realization', an expansive, nine-minute post-rock piece. If Moore's intention was to limit our 'screen time' and make us retreat into his aural world, then he may have just succeeded.
-Lake Schatz, Consequence of Sound
