    Kim Gordon

    Top Ten Books

    Sonic Youth guitarist, bassist and singer Kim Gordon came to prominence in the ‘80s and ‘90s as Sonic Youth’s defiant sound shaped alternative no wave rock. The symbol of postfeminist mystique’s influence goes beyond Sonic Youth; she coproduced Hole’s debut album, encouraged her label to sign Nirvana, and helped to proliferate the image and work of Todd Haynes, Richard Prince, Gerhard Richter and more through Sonic Youth’s cover art and music videos. Her newest project, an album called No Waves created by Body/Head, her duo formed with Bill Nace, is out now.

    Below are Kim Gordon’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually.
