Gim Kordon - "Betoni kukkii"

I'm going to have a hard time typing Gim Kordon and not Kim Gordon here, but that's the point of the name, right? Helsinki based group Gim Kordon have a new single that is going to appeal to fans of their semi-namesake. "Betoni kukkii" has the feel of early Sub Pop Records. It a festival of sludge, reminiscent of early Soundgarden, The Melvins, and Tad. It features a veritable wall of buzzing and whining guitars crashing down on the listener. Yes, it's absolutely glorious. But, as all great bands from that era had, there is something almost catchy here. "Betoni kukkii" isn't pure noise rock. Instead, it's loud, huge, noisy rock.

Singer-guitarist Aleksi Pahkala says of the song: “Betoni kukkii is a story of how often life growing up in the suburbs is a roll of the dice, a struggle and trying to get by, but also of how a sense of community in even the roughest areas is so often the only thing that provides a sense of security."

You can listen to "Betoni kukki" below. The single is available now via All That Plazz. For more on Gim Kordon, check out the band's website.

  1. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (Hsv) for the past 2 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr Oyagu helped someone in curing his (Hsv) herpes disease, quickly I copied his email which is oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com visit his website https://oyaguspellcaster.wixsite.com/oyaguherbalhome Or whatsapp him via +2348101755322
