Album Review: Kim Gordon - The Collective

Hey all, got a review up @glidemag which you can read Right C'here:

It is of Kim Gordon's newest album The Collective

RtBE are huge fans of Gordon and respected more than enjoyed her proper solo debut in 2019's No Home Record

This time around shit has gotten real. While we don't agree with the overhyped title of the review (which we didn't write) the album is top notch. We used the phrase "mental breakdown dance music" in the review and think that sums it up.  Gordon herself has stated:
“On this record, I wanted to express the absolute craziness I feel around me right now. This is a moment when nobody really knows what truth is, when facts don’t necessarily sway people, when everyone has their own side, creating a general sense of paranoia. To soothe, to dream, escape with drugs, TV shows, shopping, the internet, everything is easy, smooth, convenient, branded. It made me want to disrupt, to follow something unknown, maybe even to fail.”
She nailed it, all except the fail part, this record is wild in a good way and a clear success. 

Support the artist, buy the album, read the review, peep some video:
