Kim Gordon’s New Band GlitterBust Releases New LP On Burger Records

Untitled 3

Alex and Kim

 

If Burger Records is cool enough for Kim Gordon, it must be good enough for anyone, I am just continuing to defend the small label which came under attack because it recently teamed up with fashion giant Yves Saint Laurent for a LA music celebration. Kim Gordon was attending the event as a matter of fact.

But Sonic Youth’s frontwoman has now teaming up with Tomorrows Tulips’ Alex Knost to form a new band Glitterbust, and they have just announced the release of their self-titled debut album via Burger Records on March 4th. Tomorrows Tulips is a band that I have seen a couple of times at diverse Burger events and this guy is an experimented surfer who has also experimented with lo-fi psychedelia for a while with his indie band.

But Glitterbust is very different, at least the track they have shared, an all moan and drone 9-minute-long song, is quite disconcerting. ‘The Highline’, as it is called, is a slow-burning track, completely drums-free, with a doom vibe, vibrating distorted guitars, and whispering lamenting female-male vocals. You may either get bored and cut the fuzz off after 2 minutes, or get in the mood and embrace its sinister throb till the end,… and you should because it has its lots of surprises.

Burger will issue Glitterbust on cassette and vinyl, and you can pre-order it right here. The album only features 5 songs, which tells you how long each one probably lasts. Anyway, this it has nothing to do with the usual surfer-retro-punk stuff you find on Burger Records. So much for the homogeneity of the label!
