Hear New Sound: Body / Head's "Actress"


A week after the Dust settled on the debut listen from Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley’s new band, their fellow SY alumnus and label mate Kim Gordon has let free a new listen off her next step’s first proper outing. Body / Head is Gordon’s guitar-dueling noise rock project alongside Northampton experimental scene staple Bill Nace, whom she’s been recording and playing live with over the recent few years. On September 10th, the duo will see their proper reveal when their LP Coming Apart is released. Its first listen "Actress" steps off from the dronier aspects and smokier vocal dirge from Gordon’s past life while abandoning any of the formalities that came with that sort of writing process. It’s a telling sign that these two musicians have put in their fair share of mileage mucking through the wonderfully weird eccentricities of Western Massachusetts’ mostly uncovered noise scene. Body / Head plays the part well...
