Jul 11, 2018Kim Gordon’s voice may have been the spark that lit the blaze, but now she’s using a guitar to conjure up sonic waves to keep pushing us forward.
Jul 13, 2018Since the release of Fractured Orgasm, this duo’s 2011 cassette debut, they’ve proven themselves adept at subtly but profoundly shifting the mood of whatever studios or venues they happen to be exorcising. What The Switch demonstrates is that Gordon and Nace have gotten better at being overt.
Jul 23, 2018The Switch confirms Body/Head as the best post-Sonic Youth project by a country mile, but to merely classify them as an afterthought of that group does them a great disservice.
Jul 11, 2018The Switch is a restlessly searching work that requires a concentrated listener, yet for all its harshness, this eccentric and admirably inconclusive record has a deeply meditative quality.
Jul 30, 2018The Switch is fascinating and endlessly rewarding, even if it occasionally bears the marks of art being made for the sake of it. The nerves the band strike aren't as raw as in the past, but these two show an exacting control over their craft that few artists have ever possessed.
Jul 17, 2018The live shows Body/Head have done in the interim, where much of the material comprising The Switch sprang from, seems to’ve helped them nail down a more cohesive approach. It’s still wide open, drifting music, but with a relative brevity that helps it lodge more with the listener as an album.
Q MagazineJul 11, 2018For a "difficult" record, it's an oddly easy sell--an instant, atmospheric disturbance, a tiny portable wormhole. [Aug 2018, p.108]
