After Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore got divorced, the Sonic Youth members went to their separate bands. Gordon has the experimental duo Body/Head, Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley are together in the song-y Lee Ranaldo and the Dust, and Moore formed Chelsea Light Moving, the punkest of the post-SY bands.
The Spilt Milk team picks our favorites for the week, including Voodoo, STS9, a Ball for Ballers, Chelsea Light Moving, Lupe Fiasco, Thee Oh Sees, Robert Glasper, two more nights of Widespread Panic, and Fess Fest 2013.
Sonic Youth is on extended hiatus since Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon have divorced, but Moore, Gordon, and Lee Ranaldo have all released new musical projects this year. Moore's Chelsea Light Moving got its self-titled debut album to market first since it was released in the spring.
