Kim Gordon released her first solo album back in 2019, and now she's released a new single. "Grass Jeans" keeps the vibe of Gordon's album No Home Record but it's also the closest she's sounded to vintage Sonic Youth since Sonic Youth. "Grass Jeans" has the electro rock and art rock sound that her album had, but there's also some strong hints of early No Wave Sonic Youth. There is a ton of noise and aggression here, but you can also groove to it.
Obviously, Kim Gordon is not going to be a fan of the recent anti-abortion laws in Texas. "Grass Jeans" is a fundraiser for Fund Texas Choice. In a Facebook post, Gordon says of the new song:
"I often get asked 'Can music change things for people in a political landscape?' Hell yes it can . . . but it takes a listener, an audience to make it anything. So please join me in helping to protect and keep accessible a woman’s right to choose her fate by purchasing this song and supporting and their collective efforts to secure abortion access for all. Thank you. It means so much."
