Listen: Kim Gordon - Murdered Out

Former Sonic Youth co-leader Kim Gordon has emerged out-of-the-blue with her brand new single 'Murdered Out'. Produced by notable artist Justin Raisen, the sharp slice of industrial goth-rock is the first song to have ever been released under her own name and was inspired by Los Angeles car culture, as Gordon explained in a statement...

"When I moved back to LA I noticed more and more cars painted with black matte spray, tinted windows, blackened logos, and black wheels. This was something I had occasionally seen in the past, part of low-rider car culture. A reclaiming of a corporate symbol of American success, The Car, from an outsider’s point of view. A statement-making rejection of the shiny brand new look, the idea of a new start, the promise of power, and the freedom on the open road. Like an option on a voting ballot, "none of the above."

“Murdered Out," as a look, is now creeping into mainstream culture as a design trend. A coffee brand. A clothing line. A nail polish color.

Black-on-black matte is the ultimate expression in digging out, getting rid of, purging the soul. Like a black hole, the supreme inward look, a culture collapsing in on itself, the outsider as an unwilling participant as the “It" look.
