  • Listen To “Murdered Out” By Kim Gordon 

    “Murdered Out”  is what you call a car that’s been covered with black matte spray to strip it of identifiable features; covering up logos, tinting the windows. The trend’s popularity in Gordon’s hometown of Los Angeles inspired her new track, which is also the first time she’s released a song under her own name. It’s quite a debut, with a sinister, almost dancey foundation under her trademark breathy, rhythmic vocals.  As Gordon told NPR, Producer Justin Raisen provided the rhythmic structure of the song as well as the bass, while she added vocals and guitar and Stella from Warpaint played drums.

  • The Rock Shop Is No Longer A Music Venue

    In today’s weekly installation of “what’s changed with local venues,” we have some bad news. As Brokelyn reported, The Rock Shop, one of the only music venues in Park Slope, will no longer have live music. Instead, the first level’s stage area will be become a game room. Its last show took place on Wednesday night and featured a Weezer cover band. Stay tuned for next week, when we tell you which of your beloved music hubs will be turned into a condo (hopefully not).
