Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel: Kim Gordon (vocals, guitar); Ikue Mori (vocals, drums); DJ Olive (turntables).
Muze PNote Recorded at Tribeca Recording Center, New York, New York.
Muze PNote The muse behind husband and bandmate Thurston Moore's love of droney, tangent filled guitar lines, Kim Gordon shows her influences here. The fifth in their series of minimal, music concrete-inspired releases, this is a collaboration that collides, twists, and smashes each of its parts. DJ Olive on the turntables mixes the inklings of crackly melodies and slight orchestral washes, while Ikue Mori deals with the scrapes, the swishes, and the organic bleating of beats. Gordon takes care of the affected, alternatively-tuned guitar strumming, and breathy vocal snippets.
Muze PNote Each song varies in its usage of these three talents; the album is full of varying degrees of drone (thanks to DJ Olive's wax tracks), paired with odd sounds and irregular rhythms and blasts (thanks to drummer Ikue Mori's avant guard/no wave-ness), and out of tune vocals singing along with muted, chunky Sonic Youth-like guitar lines. The album screeches, wafts, and dissonantly bleaches out any familiar melodies. Highlights include Cibo Matto's Yuka Honda with "Take It To the Hit," and the surprise reggae sample on "Take Me Back."
