damn, how could I miss chapter III. It's the best of the first three volumes!

(I don't like chapter II as much because of the opera vocals)

New Kim Gordon solo album ...


New first-ever Kim Gordon solo album...

Y’all probably won’t like it because of Alzheimer’s or whatever, but it’s great.

Think I'll give it a listen tomorrow. Haven't heard a single track yet but the descriptors sound very interesting. Wanna go in with a blank slate.

I must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Severian again.

Into Track 2 and I really dig it so far. Dark, noisy, rough, somewhat Trip-Hop-esque at times. Still very Kim.

It's really solid and cohesive. It's different, but it feels completely her own still. At times I was reminded a bit of Yoof tracks like NYC G&F's "Lightnin'" or the noisier parts of A Thousand Leaves' "Female Mechanic Now On Duty". "Hungry Baby" is an obvious standout, as is "Sketch Artist" as you've mentioned before. But the whole album is just really good. I can tell a lot of thought went into it and this sound really suits her performance style. And I really dig the transitions from one track to another. I know, this is a very specific obsession of mine, but I care a lot about that sweet flow. And sweet flow this has in spades. The sequencing is exactly right. :D

^pretty much this. so perfectly encapsulates kim, sounds oddly timeless because it's exactly what she should be doing. and just from a more personal perspective it seems to embody her far more readily than SY or even body/head in that it's got a detached, sardonic, withering glare to it but is simultaneously very human. just a really fucking great record.

as sad as it is to see the band break up, the blossoming that kim has gone through/the confidence that she's got in herself at the moment has been so sweet to watch. her voice sounds stunning, her guitar work is finally getting its due, and she's found a way to marry it to a sound/structure that works so well for her.

I listened to it and damn. That style is exactly my thing. So good.

Damn all of you who are already listening to No Home Record. I'm still waiting for my shrinkwrapped copy. No matter what This Heat sang, shrink wrap rules. And I fuckin' love hype stickers.

How about, if you want to hear it so badly, sucking it up and just finding a stream?

EDIT: Because I don't want to post in this thread just to be an asshole - I'm listening to a My Bloody Valentine bootleg. (1991-11-25 Osaka, Japan, in case you want to yourself.)
