While it probably sounds like one of the most off kilter album’s of the year, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon’s No Home Record is still nonetheless strangely appealing. For the record, the folks at NME called Gordon’s new album “an accessible guitar record that surprises…” Honestly, I don’t know what shit they were on while listening to it, but in my opinion while songs like AirBnB, Hungry Baby and Eathquake have great jangly guitars and rumbling bass moments, No Home Record is more than just an “accessible guitar record”. With an incredible array of distorted synths, pulsating beats and loops and some very strangest experimental pop, it is one of the year’s most wildly inventive album that even pop chameleon Charli XCX would adore. While I really like AirBnB, it’s the album’s opening track Sketch Artist that shows off the album’s most surreal moments. By the way, I really love Gordon’s bass work throughout the album and as always her breathy voices even if they are contorted for effect.
