Sleater-Kinney

Sleater-Kinney came crashing out of the ’90s Pacific Northwest riot grrrl scene, setting a new bar for punk’s political insight and emotional impact. Hailed as ‘America’s best rock band‘ by Greil Marcus in Time Magazine, and as ‘America’s best punk band ever. EVER‘ by Rob Sheffield in Rolling Stone, the band put out seven searing albums in 10 years before going on indefinite hiatus in 2006. In the hiatus, Corin Tucker released two albums with the Corin Tucker Band, while Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss released one album with Wild Flag. Brownstein has been writing a book Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl and also co-created and co-stars in the cult IFC series PORTLANDIA, and Weiss recorded and toured with Quasi and Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, among others.

Then almost a decade later, the trio—guitarists/vocalists Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein, and drummer Janet Weiss—came back together and recorded and released the triumphant album No Cities To Love in January 2015. It is a modern punk classic that is certain to be on most best-of and award lists for this year.
