Album Review

Picking up where Arkansas Heat left off, on Movement the Gossip blazes through another ferocious set of bluesy garage rock steeped in lust and betrayal, both of which are exemplified in the truly stunning opener, "Nite." The simplicity and power of Kathy's drumming and Nathan's guitar work provide the perfect foil for Beth Ditto's gut-wrenching wail of "It seems like lonely is a friend of mine"; in just over two minutes, the song defines everything that makes the Gossip such a formidable band. Movement also finds the group expanding their sound, spanning not just the expected fiery outbursts like "No, No, No" and "All My Days," but also the surprisingly soulful "Don't Make Waves in the Water" (which features the great lyric "It's like I've got a hole in my pocket/Trying to keep you satisfied") and "Dangerrr," as well as the surprisingly affecting almost-ballad "Yesterday's News."

K released a self-titled 7" in 1999, and their full-length debut, That's Not What I Heard, was distributed by Kill Rock Stars in late...
