As we previously noted, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon teamed up with guitarist Bill Nace to form the noise-rock project Body/Head. The duo’s debut album Coming Apart is due out September 10th via new label home Matador Records, but this week we get an early taste in the form of “Actress”. This grisly five-minute track stacked top to bottom with freaky, screeching, spiky clamor is a sure ear-splitter ripe for soundtracking that ominous, blood-soaked murder scene. Listen in below (via Rookie).
In support of Coming Apart, Body/Head will hit the road for a string of September dates. Consult the schedule below, followed by a live clip of the band from last year in Belgium.
