ARTIST: Body/Head LABEL: Matador Records UPC: 744861104216 GENRE: Alternative Rock RELEASE DATE: 9/10/2013 DESCRIPTION Double vinyl LP pressing. 2013 debut album from this electric guitar duo comprised of Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth, Free Kitten) and Bill Nace (X.O.4, Vampire Belt, Ceylon Mange) the pair began working together in various loose formats a few years ago, but the Body/Head concept evolved more specifically in early 2012. Initially their approach was almost entirely instrumental – lattices of interwoven feedback rainbows, with bits recalling everyone from Heldon to Keiji Haino. They usually performed against a backdrop of slow-motion film projection, creating a dream narrative of undeniable power and visionary reach. Kim’s voice began creeping into the mix soon after, and the vocals now have become an intrinsic part of their musical architecture. They have even started writing and playing “songs” now, compositionally distinct from their origins, but still featuring lots of built-in improvisational space. WEA
