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.
