Since the twin dissolutions of both her marriage and her band Sonic Youth, Kim Gordon has teamed up with Bill Nace to form a new drone-rock duo called Body/Head. Coming Apart, their debut album, is all squalid fuzz-drones and sleepy-eyed beat-poetry excursions, like the Gordon-fronted parts of a Sonic Youth album if they were drained with anything remotely tethering them to traditional song-form. It’s a stark and powerful piece of work. We’ve already posted the early track “Actress,” and now you can stream the whole thing at Pitchfork.
Coming Apart is out 9/10 via Matador.
