Cory Rayborn (Three Lobbed Recordings): “We have all been there at some point or another, maybe even last night. There are those moments when you are drifting into or out of sleep when it is hard to identify exactly what is real and what is imaginary. Time spent working through the hazy gauze separating waking and dreaming blurs the edges of perception and leaves us sorting through myriad versions of hyper-reality. The music of Body/Head has always existed for me within this liminal space. Whether it is Kim Gordon’s spectral, invocation-like vocals and churning guitar work or Bill Nace’s reality altering guitar conjurings, the duo have spent over a decade creating a singular body of work that rides that very knife’s edge. Are their sonic constructions here to help you or to harm you? To guide you to safety or to lead you into ruin? Where the listener sits mentally at any given moment helps determines the outcome along countless dualities. This mastery over unpredictability is why I have constantly considered them the most potent band going.”
TUTV: With this 4-track EP Body/Head drags me into a surreal film noir, directed
by David Lynch, in which haunting music plays over shadowy Eraserhead-like images.
The soundtrack features bone-chilling distorted noise, psychotic guitars, anguished bass fragments, schizoprhenic synths and Gordon‘s ghostly and otherwordly vocals. Overall Come On is a nightmarish trip into a black hole. Mysterious, stupefying and engrossing.
A fascinating feat.
