‘Coming Apart’ ; the new 2XLP/CD/digital album from Body/Head, aka Kim Gordon and Bill Nace, is streaming today at Pitchfork Advance, prior to the September 10 release date. Mojo’s Stevie Chick has likened ‘Coming Apart’ to “70 minutes of drone, feedback amp-noise and guitar squall that swings between abstract beauty and rolling turmoil…freeform and improvisational, it’s peaks are primal and powerful.” The bad news is that Stevie penned the review too late for our sticker copy ; the good news is that you’ll be able to find the album in the abstract beauty bin of your local record shop (or failing that, the rolling turmoil department). The Wire’s Phil Freeman calls ‘Coming Apart’, “just the thing for listeners who always found Sonic Youth too timid and bound to rock convention,” though we hope he and his publishers do not mind that we’ve edited his quote to read “…just the the thing. For listeners”.
