A new solo record from the iconoclastic Kim Gordon, co-founder of Sonic Youth and an acclaimed solo artist since their demise. No Home Record is preoccupied with the feelings of transience and displacement - both physical and spiritual - that go hand-in-hand with modern existence, and consists of nine tracks of exploratory alternative rock.

No Home Record by Kim Gordon

10/10 Will 08 October 2019

I remember the first time I heard the lead single, 'Sketch Artist', from Kim Gordon's new album 'No Home Record' like it was yesterday. Perched in my chambers, I noticed that Kim Gordon had released a song. 'Oh cool', I thought, 'I like her music and have recently re-read sections of her superb book', unprepared for the titanium-bottomed onslaught that was to follow. Man what a song. For those that haven't heard it, just stop reading, listen to it a few times, and come back because I can't even hope to convey how superb it is. As we rocket towards the end of 2019, I may even stick to my conviction way back in August that it was the best song of the year.

So, I had a problem with Angel Olson's new album 'All Mirrors' because the first song, 'Lark', was so righteous and transcendent that it kinda overshadowed the rest of the album. I had far less of this problem on 'No Home Record' but still found my fingers drifting towards the mouse to replay 'Sketch Artist'. Still, 'No Home Record' is a fantastic album, no question about it. There are glitchy techno beats, a refined and updated Sonic Youth sound, and even what sounds like trap on 'Paprika Pony'. I love the Monks groove on 'Hungry Baby' and Stephen O'Malley seems to have dropped in on a section of one of the album highlights 'Cookie Butter', a baleful, growling, lo-fi number that is almost a worthy challenger to 'Sketch Artist'. Yeah, you read that right. 

Whatever Kim Gordon's been on recently, I want some because it's so rare to hear artists earnestly interacting with newer genres and not just in a performative way. It's not just the one electronic song amidst a sea of Sonic Youth-lite. In fact, I actually prefer the ones that sound like Sonic Youth to Sonic Youth, they're just that bit less juvenile (don't @ me Sonic Youth fans).

'No Home Record' is huge, complete album that seethes and whinnies with life.
