*[consequenceofsound.net] "“Circulation”, the 2nd video from Demolished Thoughts (after the dream cloud love + war visuals of “Benediction” by the mysterious, elusive director Josef Marie) – 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 himself. After being entranced and inspired by this ritualistic love energy it was decided by TM and Rose Mackey, one of the leading lights of this wild heart gang, to combine forces. Rose, a film director by devotion, and TM, who was looking to visualize his jam “Circulation” came together, employed the sensitive eye of Andrew Kesin, long running chief administrator of TM’s own Ecstatic Peace record label, to capture the magic touch of dance and music….. ——- and we all shine on." - Thurston Moore
