EDITORS’ NOTES

Anyone longing for the early, experimental days of Sonic Youth can rejoice in Kim Gordon’s work in the wake of her old band’s demise. On the debut of Glitterbust, her duo with Alex Knost, guitars are treated with a kaleidoscopic array of effects. It’s a mostly instrumental outing, with Glitterbust creating an entire world from raw-but-exotic tones ranging from the ominous drones of “Soft Landing” to the disorienting throb and wobble of “Nude Economics.” When vocals do enter amid the crunch and rattle of “Repetitive Differ,” it evokes The Velvet Underground at their most outré.
