Album Review: Body/Head - Coming Apart

Hey all,

Got a new review up on Glide.

You can Read it Right C'here!!!

It is of Body/Head's newest release Coming Apart. The group is Kim Gordon's first Sonic Youth outing as she whirls guitar noise with Bill Nace, trading six string scratches back and forth.

This is strictly arty noise rock, and not for those wanting easy soothing listens. It made me laugh when in the press release they said they were going more for songs, no verse-chorus-bridge here, but that is too strict of a definition for the duo. 

I like this stuff and enjoyed reviewing it but I know it is not for everyone so giving it a star rating is always difficult for people to judge it. This isn't the best of it's kind, but it is pretty solid for this type of stuff also the more I spun it the more I dug it which is always a positive.

Hmm albums from Thurston, Kim, and one from Ranaldo and Shelley coming soon...Sonic's seem alive and kicking in various forms...that is a big time plus. As we have mentioned SY are one of our all time fav's.

Buy the album here, catch them live and peep some samples below:
