Multi-disciplinary artist Kim Gordon announced her first-ever solo album, No Home Record (Matador Records), dropping October 11th. The announcement of No Home Record follows the recent opening of Gordon’s solo exhibition “She Bites Her Tender Mind” at IMMA in Pittsburgh, PA. Among its nine tracks, No Home Record features the new single “Sketch Artist” accompanied by a video directed by Berlin-based artist and filmmaker Loretta Fahrenholz who notes “‘Sketch Artist’ is a haunted car ride. Kim drives as ‘Unter’ Pool summons passengers throughout nighttime LA. The city drifts by, passengers intermingle in the back seat and Kim’s deadly stare shocks pedestrians along her route.” The clip includes a cameo from actress and writer Abbi Jacobson.
No Home Record was produced largely by Justin Raisen (Charli XCX, Ariel Pink, Sky Ferreira) at Sphere Ranch in Los Angeles, along with contributions from Shawn Everett (Jim James, The Voidz, The War on Drugs) and composer/filmmaker Jake Meginsky (L’appel Du Vide). Gordon’s solo debut album’s title is a nod to the French-Belgian director Chantal Akerman’s film No Home Movie.
