Album of the Week: Kim Gordon | The Collective

After a break up, we typically remain friends with one not both.

After Sonic Youth disbanded, an event that can still raise my ire (but I get it), I thought I knew which member(s) I’d remain friends with, so to speak. And I was right and wrong as Kim Gordon turned out to be my new bestest friend. Thurston not so much.

The Collective is Kim Gordon’s latest, released on Matador last week, and it is not only my favorite post-Sonic Youth record by a former member it is among my favorite records. [/end]

Badass, sexy, dangerous, and deep.
