Chelsea Light Moving’s self-titled debut is due out March 5 (March 4 in Europe) on Matador Records. The band features Moore as singer/songwriter/guitarist along with Samara Lubelski on bass, Keith Wood (aka Hush Arbors) on electric guitar and drummer John Moloney. Lubelski played violin on Moore’s last two solo albums – Demolished Thoughts and Trees Outside The Academy.
An announcement on Matador’s blog proclaims “the band is ready to detonate any birthday party, wedding or hullaboo in any country, planet or stratosphere that doesn’t support right wing extremist NRA sucking bozo-ology.”
