Many would say that the older discs are their best.

how would you rank them?

until "the woods" came out, i thought nothing could top "the hot rock". it's very underrated.

1. the woods
2. the hot rock
3. dig me out
4. one beat
5. call the doctor
6. all hands on the bad one
7. sleater-kinney

#1 One Beat. It was my first SK record and I consider it near perfect. The song One Beat blows my mind to this day. Just perfection.
#2 The Woods. Probably because they went way out on a limb and changed everything we thought we knew about them. They perfected the SK sound on One Beat and basically created a new band. Plain and simple, it is the hardest, heaviest and most rocking album ever made by women. Each time I listen, I can't get over how damn loud it is. But it is missing that certain something that makes Sleater-Kinney who they are.
#3 Dig me out, All Hands on the Bad One, The Hot Rock...and maybe the Woods.
When I hear certain tracks on each one of these records I think to myself, 'this might be my favorite song ever.' So catchy and fun to sing along with...and I'm a guy.
#4 Call the Doctor and the self-titled. Both good, but a tad bit raw for everyday listening.

Hollowgen, why do people always seem surprised when boys like SK? Having made my list and having listened to and loved each record, I'll admit that I knew little about who the actual band is. I could recognize them and know their names, but the desire to know everything from birthdays to eye color left me a long time ago. Are they lesbians? Or just embraced by the lesbian community? Are boys not suppoesd to like them? Are they feminists? Anti-man? Doesn't Corin have a child? Do tell.

These are my top two as well. The rest I like pretty much equally, except their self-titled album which I can't rank because I haven't heard yet. I recently posted that their first was the only album by them that I didn't own, and upon hearing this sad news it prompted me to finally find and order it online. It should be here next week.

meh, you'll always get comments like that from people who don't feel or know that music is pretty much universal. especially when said music is labeled with something like "grrl"

just saw 1/2 "final" shows last night. don't know if it was knowing they'd be kaputt, but they kicked way more arse than the last few times i've seen them. almost 2 hr set, and 2 encores. it was also LOUDER than ever before. brought a good handfull of classics back into the set for once.

if you're in the area tonight and are a fan, go search out a ticket.

Wouldn't happen to have the setlist would you? The message board at sleater-kinney.net as been down this week for maintenance.

I got to see them for my first time at Lolla last weekend. Loved it, but would have loved to see a 2 1/2 hour show. They were just getting warmed up after only an hour.

Nooooo!

I missed this thread when first posted. Sleater-Kinney have been my favorite band of the past 10 years. It sucks knowing that there won't be a next album coming out any time in the near future. Hopefully they will at least be putting out a live album or dvd sometime.

Anyhow my rankings

1-Call the Doctor (Best album of the 90's)
2-One Beat
3-Dig Me Out
4-Sleater Kinney (Though at a mere 20+ minutes it's more of an e.p.)
5-The Woods
6-Hot Rock
7-All Hands on the Bad One (The only album of their's I was kind of let down by, Not bad but just not up to snuff with their other stuff)

Ugh, those last two shows must have been awesome - those set lists have me drooling. I went to the NYC show 2 weeks ago and the set list was no near that good....
If they put those shows on DVD, I will die happy. Please don't break up girls.

Sleater-Kinney returns with new album/tour

http://pitchfork.com/news/57108-slea...s-lyric-video/

Sleater-Kinney are back! As anticipated, Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker, and Janet Weiss will release new album No Cities to Love on January 20 in the U.S. and January 19 internationally via Sub Pop. Watch the lyric video for new track "Bury Our Friends" below. It features director/artist/actress/author Miranda July, a longtime Sleater-Kinney collaborator. Download the song in exchange for an email address here.

The band is also heading out on tour in early 2015. Check out the dates below, along with the album tracklist. The deluxe vinyl version comes with an etched, single-sided 12" with two bonus tracks.

No Cities to Love was produced by John Goodmanson, who produced Call the Doctor, One Beat, Dig Me Out, and All Hands on the Bad One. In a press release, Brownstein said, "We sound possessed on these songs, willing it all - the entire weight of the band and what it means to us - back into existence."

This week, Sub Pop releases the discography box set Start Together. As previously reported, it contained a mysterious white 7" bearing the inscription "1/20/15." That turned out to be the album's release date; the song on the 7" is "Bury Our Friends".



Sleater-Kinney formed in Olympia, Washington in 1994. Singer-guitarists Brownstein (then of the band Excuse 17) and Tucker (of Heavens to Betsy) named Sleater-Kinney after a local road and released their self-titled debut album in 1995. Call The Doctor followed in 1996, and new drummer Janet Weiss (also of Quasi) joined the band for 1997's Dig Me Out.

Brownstein, Tucker, and Weiss went on to release 1999's The Hot Rock, 2000's All Hands on the Bad One, and 2002's One Beat until their last record, The Woods, arrived in 2005. The band broke up after a final tour in summer 2006. Last year, Sleater-Kinney reunited on stage for the first time since 2006 to cover Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World" with their one-time tourmates, Pearl Jam.

In December, news broke that Janet Weiss and Carrie Brownstein's post-Sleater-Kinney band Wild Flag "ran its course." Weiss and Brownstein released one great record with Wild Flag, while Corin Tucker has released two solo records since 2006. Brownstein also launched herself to a more visible realm of fame with her sketch comedy show "Portlandia".

No Cities to Love:

01 Price Tag
02 Fangless
03 Surface Envy
04 No Cities to Love
05 A New Wave
06 No Anthems

re: Sleater-Kinney Discussion

It's been nearly a decade since they put out an album. This new one is supposed to be shit (that's how it usually goes after a long delay).

But WOW was I fucking impressed. 10 tremendous songs, not a bad one on this terrific album.

1st day purchase for me. Hope to see them in concert as well.

So great to have these ladies back.
