Body/Head - "Actress"

Kim Gordon's post-Sonic Youth band (a duo with Bill Nace) has finally released a track, and it's pretty much exactly what I expected. "Actress" exists in the land between the SYR series and Evol. It's not pure noise, but it's pretty damn close. That's good for me since I hate most true noise bands and prefer some remnants of a song structure. In Sonic Youth's last few albums, Kim's songs were always the noisier and more experimental of the batch. If "Actress" is an example, Body/Head will be by far the most avant garde of the bunch while SY are on indefinite hiatus.

"Coming Apart" is due September 10 on Matador. Listen to "Actress" below.
