Time Out says

Sleater-Kinney's reunion in 2015 was a welcome and needed comeback, but the group has weathered some major changes in the wake of its second album since the band's return. Enlisting Annie Clark (a.k.a. St. Vincent) to handle production duties, The Center Won't Hold takes Sleater-Kinney into the realm of pop music, adding prominent bass lines and synth melodies to a collection of urgent anthems. Though the album was recorded as a trio, Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker will take the stage without longtime drummer Janet Weiss—she announced her departure from the group in July, stating "it is time for me to move on." During its two-night stand at the Riviera, Sleater-Kinney is joined by singer-songwriter Shamir, who has left behind the bouyant pop of his debut album Rachet in favor of country-inflected indie-rock.
