North & South - - Review -

“Mur­dered Out”, the first sin­gle Kim Gor­don – former Sonic Youth singer/gui­tarist/bass­player – has re­leased un­der her own name, is every­thing a fan of Gor­don and her former bands could hope for. A sim­ple bassline loops be­hind shards of gui­tar, boom­ing drums with just the right amount of swing, and, of course, her voice, one of the most dis­tinc­tive to come out of the US post-punk/al­ter­na­tive/ in­die/what­ever scene. “Mur­dered Out” rein­vents noth­ing, but hits every­thing.
