Out Today : Body/Head – ‘The Switch’

(photo : David Black)

The Wire’s Stewart Smith opines that “Kim Gordon and Bill Nace’s Body/Head is the most compelling project to have emerged from the ashes of Sonic Youth,” (“Gordon and Nace have become increasingly interested in texture and space, creating a free psychedelic music that’s attuned to the play of shadow and light”), and while we’re not encouraging comparison or competition between post-SY endeavors, I think we can all agree that today is a VERY GOOD DAY for The Wire’s Stewart Smith, as Body/Head’s 3rd Matador album, ‘The Switch’ is officially available via all finer record shops and digital platforms.

(purchase / stream ‘The Switch’)

Pitchfork’s Marc Masters calls ‘The Switch’, “as mesmerizing as a hypnotist’s swinging clock,” (“no matter how far they stretch, their tones and rhythms always cohere…in Nace and Gordon’s hands, these unchartable sounds combine like well-defined movements in a symphony. Their guitars rhyme as if they were trading chord changes rather than thick swaths of noise,”) and as much as we anticipate you’ll agree with him 110% upon experiencing the album in your preferred listening environment, we also wholeheartedly encourage you to catch Body/Head on tour starting tonight at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Masonic Lodge.

Coming July 13 : Body/Head – The Switch


(photo : David Black)

On July 13, we’re releasing the new album from BODY/HEAD, ‘The Switch’. The duo of Kim Gordon and Bill Nace recorded their 2nd studio album for Matador last summer in Western Massachusetts with engineer Justin Pizzoferrato and the results are equal parts dizzying & intense. Summer & Autumn U.S. dates are listed below, with several of the shows in question already on sale.

stream/download “You Don’t Need”
preorder ‘The Switch’

Creative alchemy doesn’t just happen in the studio or in the practice space; so much of it is the product of solo time with one’s instrument, learning how body and wood and electronics fuse, and of subconscious processes as one lives one’s daily life—picking up the ambient noise of the world outside, listening to others’ work, talking through ideas with friends. For Kim Gordon and Bill Nace, time together these days is limited to live performances and recording, so they’ve got to bring all their magic to every encounter. Lucky for us, these are two experimental sorcerers of significant renown.

Their debut album together as Body/Head, ‘Coming Apart’, from 2013, was more of a rock record—heavy, emotional, cathartic, spellwork in shades of black and grey. T’he Switch’ is their second studio full-length, and it finds the duo working with a more subtle palette, refining their ideas and identity. Some of it was sketched out live (if you’ve not had the fortune of seeing them in that natural environment yet, see 2016’s improvisational document ‘No Waves’), but much of it happened purely in the moment. Working in the same studio and with the same producer as ‘Coming Apart’, here Body/Head stretch out, making spacious pieces that build shivering drones, dissonant interplay, Gordon’s manipulated vocals, and scraping, haunting textures into something that feels both delicate and dangerous. Less discrete songs than one composition broken up into thematic movements, a slow-moving narrative that requires as much attention and care from the listener as it did from everyone involved in its creation, it is a record that sticks around after it’s done playing.

This is Nace’s favorite of Gordon’s guitar work; she’s truly come into her own as a guitarist, having built up her confidence through solo shows. The way the duo work together, you’d never know they spend so much time apart; on ‘The Switch’, their vision and focus feel truly unified. If Coming Apart was dark magic, ‘The Switch’ works with light, though it never forgets that these approaches are two sides of the same coin, and that binaries—black/white, near/far, emotion/analysis, body/head—are made to be broken open, and that the truth of things is in the energy between.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – “Refute”, #sparklehard quiz/Spotify Playlist Generator (PLUS CENSORED ART)

Prior to May 18’s release of their hotly anticipated ‘Sparkle Hard’, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks have unveiled another of the album’s world-class compositions, “Refute”, featuring guest vocals from Kim Gordon. Pressed to explain, Stephen’s claimed his intent was to “queer the duet”, by playing with “Nashville tropes in light of current trends in evolutionary psychology” and swapping “the classic He Said/She Said narrative, where in this case the ‘wife’ is the cheater, and the omniscient narrator enters at the end to offer cold comfort.”

In addition, today marks your opportunity to take the STEPHEN MALKMUS & THE JICKS #sparklehard quiz to find out your sparkle level (YES, THAT’S WHAT IT SAYS HERE) and receive a custom @Spotify playlist with original ‘Sparkle Hard’ album art rejected by Matador’s free-expression phobic legal dept.

Liz Phair – “Bomb: (‘Girly-Sound’ version), “Stratford On Guy” Video (remastered audio)

(photo by Elizabeth Weinberg)

“Stratford On Guy” (directed by Liz Phair)

Prior to the May 4 release of ‘Girly-Sound To Guyville’ : The 25th Anniversary Box Set’, we’ve released the remastered audio for “Bomb” (culled from ‘Sooty’, the third ‘Girly-Sound’ cassette’) as well as premiering Phair’s video for “Stratford On Guy” (the song that “Bomb” would eventually morph into) with remastered audio as well (above).

“We were in talks with labels about the second record – Matador was being courted by Atlantic – and Danny Goldberg came backstage to meet me. I told him about my idea for the next video – ‘Stratford-On-Guy’ – explaining that we were stalled due to budget constraints. He asked ‘what do you need?’ I said, ‘a private plane to fly over downtown LA and get footage at night.’ I wanted to shoot the electric veins of the city. He just said, ‘done!’ It was one of those real rock star moments.

So my husband, his friend Michael Mees, who was the DP, and I went up in this 8 seater Lear Jet and got the greatest footage ever. We were literally flying sideways so Michael could shoot straight down over the rooftops of all the buildings. We were executing these tight turns above the skyscrapers and the G force was incredible. You could feel your internal organs dragging to the other side of your body cavity. Michael was using this really heavy camera and Jim, my husband, had to hold onto him as we shot. The lens of the camera was pressing down against the window pane and I remember Michael nervously joking – and not really in jest – that the glass beneath him better hold. It was so fun. We made two approaches into the airport so we could capture that fantastic runway lighting. Those images are etched in my memory forever. I seem to recall I somehow wedged my head up between the pilots like a dog peering over the backseat so I could see that awesome 180* cockpit view, too. Good times!” – Liz Phair
