Too Good To Forget – Solo Debut Album ‘NO HOME RECORD’ By KIM GORDON

17 June 2020

Artist: Kim Gordon
Album : No Home Record
Released: 11 October 2019

Pitchfork wrote: “After 38 years of making music, Kim Gordon’s thrilling solo debut lives
at the vanguard of sound and performance, shot through with the beautiful, unsparing noise that has always defined her art… No Home Record—which, incredibly, is Gordon’s first solo album in 38 years of making music—offers evidence of her reinvention: Even longtime fans
may find themselves thunderstruck by some of the turns she takes here. But the record also confirms the essence of her creative identity; it’s shot through with sounds and concepts that have defined her work over the years, just presented in a way we’ve never heard them before.”

Keywords: Mind-puzzling, left-field, innovatory, voltaic, erratic, cutting,
wayward, droning and Turn Up The Volume’s album of 2019

Here’s KIM GORDON With Enigmatic Love Song ‘EARTHQUAKE’…

Reveries for the laziest day of the week

15 December 2019

Former Sonic Youth icon KIM GORDON made one of the best and most intriguing
albums of the year with her debut solo LP No Home Record. One of the top tracks
is love ballad ‘EARTHQUAKE‘ which Gordon dedicates to a mysterious lover. She
sounds enigmatic, obsessed and utterly cool. Definitely not your average love song.

This song is for you
If I could cry and shake for you
I’d lay awake for you

Here’s the voyeuristic video clip…
