Body/Head is the duo of Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth, Free Kitten) and guitarist Bill Nace (Northampton Wools, Celyon Mange). They play experimental, free-form guitar drones highlighed by Gordon's unmistakable voice. Their sound is an immersive, three-dimensional experience and no two performances are similar. No Waves was recorded on March 24th, 2014 during Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, TN at the Bijou Theater. This live album captures Gordon and Nace at peak chemistry during the tour supporting 2013's critically lauded Coming Apart.
The band have not played many shows since forming, but those who have been able to see them live have left their jaws on the floor. This album is the piece of the Body/Head puzzle for those who have not seen the band live and for those that have, something they want to own. Instead of presenting "tracks" or "songs" from the record, they present moments from this one pinnacle set that was luckily for us beautifully caught in time. World-renowned artist and long-time friend of Gordon, Raymond Pettibon has made an original piece of art for the cover of the album.
