Everyone reunites, so it's no surprise to have Sleater-Kinney back. But few comebacks are so welcome and needed. The trio trash and swing with a two guitar attack and offer a sound that is growing more uncommon—not just unfiltered rock but a headline act of all women. Corin, Carrie and Janet quietly recorded a noisy new album, No Cities to Love, due early in the new year. A funny thing has happened in the band's hiatus—Carrie Brownstein, once the secondary singer, is now indisputably the frontwoman, thanks to her surprising career as a television star. Porlandia means it is here voice you hear up front in new single "Bury Our Friends." But what makes S-K roar is that it is the work of three simultaneous voices.
