Kim Gordon and Bill Nace’s Body/Head have teamed up with experimentalist Aaron Dilloway for a collaborative album as Body/Dilloway/Head. Their debut release is a self-titled three song album, which is out on November 19th via Three Lobed.
“One of the things I like most about playing improvised music and especially in Body/Head with Bill is the constantly exhilarating freedom and surprise about what is going to happen at any given moment,” Gordon explains. “Making this record with Aaron Dilloway, who I have always admired so much, added in another layer of unknown and another way of giving up control. Aaron took our sounds / music as a source and had ‘his way with it’ so to speak, crushing whatever narrative that existed in order to enter into it and making something different than what we would have done as Body/Head.”
To preview the collection, Body/Dilloway/Head have shared a new single, “Goin’ Down.” “Goin’ Down” is a perfect example of that experimental sound. It comes packed with ominous, ambient instrumentals that slowly build with eerie background vocals. The twisting song is constantly changing, as the band truly takes you on a sonic journey.
Listen to “Goin’ Down” below.
Body/Dilloway/Head marks Gordon and Nace’s first new music since 2018’s The Switch. The album sees Body/Head diving into the improvisational, experimental world of Dilloway.

Back in February, Kim Gordon shared a music video for her No Home Record track, “Hungry Baby.” The video, which was directed by Clara Balzary, stars Coco Gordon-Moore, Gordon’s daughter with her ex-husband/Sonic Youth bandmate Thurston Moore. The clip sees Gordon-Moore wearing a red retail vest, scraping gum off of the side of a store. Eventually, a man pulls up in a car, shouting “Hey! Are you hungry baby?” The man then throws a milkshake on the ground and drives away.
