Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore has unveiled another track by his new band, Chelsea Light Moving.

The song 'Groovy & Linda' can be heard by scrolling down and clicking below. It draws lyrical inspiration from the late-'60s East Village hippie couple whose flower-power dreams ended in a double homicide. Folk singer Thom Parrott also named a song in 1968 after the same track.

It follows the band's first release 'Burroughs', which is inspired by the last words of Beat author William Burroughs. That was released late last month. You can watch the video for that track by scrolling and clicking below.

As well as Moore, the band also features Keith Wood on guitar, Samara Lubelski on bass and John Moloney on drums. They are currently working on their debut album with record label Matador. They also have a series of US shows lined up at Alberta Sled Island on July 22, Missoula's The Top Hat (24), Boulder Theatre (27) and Denver Larimer Lounge (29).

In October last year, Moore and his partner Kim Gordon announced their marital split. The rock couple released a statement through their label Matador Records revealing that they were separating after 27 years of marriage.

The announcement raised doubts over the future of Sonic Youth after Matador revealed that plans for the band remained "uncertain", even though they had previously hinted they would record new material in 2011.
