I think Kim Gordon is one of the coolest people alive. If you’re unfamiliar, she is well-known for being part of iconic rock band Sonic Youth, and since then, has gone on to be a writer, a painter, fashion designer, model, etc. 40 years alter and she’s still making some of the hardest music out there. Her previous record No Home Record sounded like an amalgamation of electronic, hip-hop, and rock, creating a noisy mashup that is both hard to listen to and totally entrancing.
Yesterday she announced her new record, The Collective, along with a music video for the song “BYE BYE.” The video stars her daughter Coco Gordon Moore as a mysterious teen on the run from unknown forces. The track continues Gordon’s electronic noise rock sound, messy and glitchy and great. Excited to see what she’s cooked up on 8 March.
