Praise for No Home Record:

"The songs are immediate, loose, and liberated...as ferocious as she’s ever been."
VOGUE

“An inimitable and malleable artist who, nonetheless, sounds only like Kim Gordon.” - NPR

“A swirling aural collage with splashes of vintage Sonic Youth noise rock, offset by jagged, impressionistic lyrics.” - The New York Times

“A heavily electronic soundscape that mostly leaves behind the squalling guitars of her longtime band Sonic Youth and finds new ways to sound experimental,” - Vanity Fair

"The rock icon is back…[No Home Record] melds dirge-y electronica and distorted guitars with her observational poetry.” - Entertainment Weekly

"Against a radical blend of the chaotic noise rock she helmed with Sonic Youth and genre-bending experimentalism, Gordon’s lyrics cooly run a razor blade along the edges of LA to examine what’s below the city’s artifice." - GARAGE

“Gordon is still finding new ways to express (and stretch) herself." - AV Club

“She still has some new sounds in store for longtime fans.” - Billboard

“Everything you thought you knew about Kim Gordon gets wiped out.” - The Stranger

"It’s jagged, chaotic and mesmerizing in a way that pulls you inevitably into the thick of it, as if the songs were exerting their own inescapable gravity." - Paste Magazine

“One of her most accessible-sounding to date; weird raw pop” - FLOOD

“...Raw yet refined, honest yet delusional. It's everything we've come to know and love about Kim Gordon.” - BUST Magazine

Since co-founding Sonic Youth in the early 80’s, Kim Gordon has remained at the nexus of music, fashion, art and (more recently) books and film.  In the past few years alone, Gordon has debuted in the #1 spot on the NY Times Bestseller List with her 2015 memoir Girl In A Band, acted alongside Joaquin Phoenix and Jonah Hill under the direction of Gus Van Sant (in 2018’s “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot”), released music and performed as one half of Body/Head alongside Bill Nace, and opened multiple solo-exhibitions at internationally renowned museums.
