Press Play: Sleater-Kinney

todayJanuary 29, 2015

Indie rock legends, Sleater-Kinney make a triumphant return to the alternative rock scene with their new album, No Cities To Love. The all female band consists of Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein, who play the guitar and sing, along with Janet Weiss on the drums. Many will recognize Brownsein from the hit television comedy, Portlandia, that she not only starred in from 2011-2015, but also co-created with Saturday Night Live alumnus Fred Armisen.

The trio decided to take a hiatus in 2006, in which the artists pursued solo projects. They have reunited to create a record that is pure rock and roll from the first beat. The album begins with Price Tag, a song that boasts slick guitar riffs. Listeners soon find that this is the common theme throughout No Cities To Love and that the album has been well worth the wait.

“We want the songs to be daunting” proclaims drummer Janet Weiss. RSU Radio is already playing several songs from No Cities to Love, so be sure to tune in to catch their latest achievement.
