Kim Gordon – No Home Record (sealed U.S import )
No Home Record is Kim Gordon’s first solo album in her 38-year music career. According to Gordon, she decided to start working on the album after meeting producer Justin Raisen in an Airbnb rental a few years prior to the album’s recording. Raisen asked her to sing on a project that he had been working on, which became the basis for the song “Murdered Out”. The two decided to continue working on a solo album.
The album received perfect scores from Laura Snapes of The Guardian, who said that it “brilliantly weds noise textures to pop dynamics”, and Joe Creely of The Skinny, who called it a “superb genre-spanning solo debut” and “a real joy of an album”. Danijela Bočev of The Quietus said “The album dazzles with the thrilling cocktail of styles Gordon’s been through, as if changing channels on the coolest radio on earth.” Pitchfork‘s Philip Sherburne called her solo debut “thrilling” and said it was “shot through with the beautiful, unsparing noise that has always defined her art.” Reviewing for The Observer, Kitty Empire found it to be “quiet a feat” for Gordon to “connect 70s No Wave with the mischievous end of contemporary digital production” on “punishing, three-dimensional soundscapes” like “AirBnB”. In his Substack-published “Consumer Guide” column, Robert Christgau also highlighted the musical accomplishment of the album and recommended it be heard on quality speakers: “The guitars credited throughout meld with the electronics that dominate in a rough but also eloquently textured construct that complements the fragility and directness of Gordon’s sometimes pained, sometimes whispery vocals.
