New tracks by Bill Nace: Get high or get a headache

Bill Nace, half of experimental duo Body/Head (with Kim Gordon), shares two tracks of his upcoming solo album ‘Both’: Part 5 and Part 7. Either get high or get a headache.

Bill Nace has collaborated with artists such as Yoko Ono, Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon, and saying he likes experimental improvisation is an understatement. His solo album ‘Both’ will be released on the 22nd of May, but we get to hear two tracks right now: Part 5 and Part 7.

In his own words, Bill Nace ‘has found a stimulating, chiaroscuro-stubbled path back to the electric guitar’s anarchic promise, drawn through eight colorful pieces that are equal parts sound, noise and music.’

It’s hard to say anything about repetetive experimental noise without sounding stupid, but we’ll try anyway. The guitar loops have an organic, moody feel, and are calming and uncanny at the same time. All we can say is we liked it. We’ve even put the loops on loop – the noise bounces through your skull like a bat with corona in an empty cave. You either get high or you get a splitting headache. Listening is the only way to know.
