Peaches featuring Kim Gordon - "Close Up"

Ever since she mentioned it on Marc Maron's WTF podcast back in March, I've been anxiously waiting to hear Kim Gordon's collaboration with Peaches. It's finally out in the form of the video for "Close Up." The song "Close Up" is nearly a duet between the two. Gordon mostly handles the chorus along with a little more, while the verses are Peaches' duty. The song is a bit more minimal than I would have expected, since usually Gordon is associated with walls of noise. The video shows Peaches as a wrestler battling the wrestlers of Lucha VaVoom and Gordon as her disinterested and annoyed manager. It also has some poopy humor that you probably wouldn't want co-workers seeing you watch, so NSFW. Also, I never thought I'd type "Kim Gordon" and "wrestling" in the same sentence.

Peaches' new album, Rub, is due out September 25 on I U She. Check out her website for more information.
