Kim Gordon – “Murdered Out”

The former Sonic Youth co-leader Kim Gordon has been recording for 35 years, and she has never released a song under her own name until this morning. Today, she’s dropped the new single “Murdered Out,” a feverish noise-rock song with an absolutely monster groove. Los Angeles car culture inspired the song, and Gordon worked on it with Sky Ferreira/Angel Olsen producer Justin Raisen, with Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa playing drums. It’s heavier and more rhythmic than anything Gordon has done in a long time, but it still has a freewheeling experimental-noise sensibility. It’s just an awesome song, and you can hear it below.

“Murdered Out” is out now on Matador. You can read an interview with Gordon about it at NPR.
