FYI to those who still buy CDs, there's a $2-off coupon for this for Best Buy this week, bringing it down to $7.99. It's also good for $2 off Belle & Sebastian's new one and can be printed from their Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/belleandsebastian.

Listened to it twice in a row. Like it a lot. Here is how I rank their albums for now:

1.) Call the Doctor
2.) The Hot Rock (imo this benefitted the most from the recent remastering)
3.) The Woods
4.) No Cities To Love
5.) Dig Me Out (I know it's their important, seminal breakthrough but I've always found it a bit overrated)
6.) All Hands on the Bad One
7.) Sleater-Kinney
8.) One Beat

Thanks! Picked this up @ BB today along with the new Marilyn Manson.

Re: Sleater-Kinney Discussion

A new Sleater-Kinney album is coming out this year, and it’s produced by St. Vincent. The trio announced the news in a tweet with a photo of the four of them in the studio, and Annie Clark followed it up a minute after with a tweet of her own.

We knew that Sleater-Kinney were working on new music — they said as much around this time last year. It’s the follow-up to 2015’s excellent No Cities To Love, which was Sleater-Kinney’s first new album in a decade when it came out.

That’s all the info we’ve got for now. But holy crap!

Re: Sleater-Kinney Discussion


At the top of this year we learned the very exciting news that Sleater-Kinney would soon be returning with their first album since 2015 comeback No Cities To Love and that it would be produced by none other than St. Vincent. Earlier this week the band announced their first live show in two years, a headlining slot at North Carolina’s Hopscotch Music Festival this September. And now it looks like new music is imminent.

As Reddit’s indieheads forum points out, the record label Mom + Pop has posted a new Sleater-Kinney bio to their website, suggesting a move from Sub Pop, who released No Cities To Love. Mom + Pop lists the new album title as The Center Won’t Hold. It also mentions a single called “Hurry On Home” and links to an active landing page, indicating the song may be coming as soon as tonight. ( Generally those pages don’t go up too far in advance.)

There’s no word regarding a release date for the album, but the Mom + Pop bio includes some quotes from the band, including this from Carrie Brownstein: “We’re always mixing the personal and the political but on this record, despite obviously thinking so much about politics, we were really thinking about the person — ourselves or versions of ourselves or iterations of depression or loneliness — in the middle of the chaos.” We’re also told the album’s title track is a dark and heavy look at the 2016 election designed to make listeners uncomfortable. Sounds rad! Sign me up!

UPDATE: It looks like Sleater-Kinney updated their official website too. It features the same photo from the “Hurry On Home” landing page and cycles through a series of words, from “UNFUCKABLE” to “UNLOVABLE” to “UNLISTENABLE.”

Re: Sleater-Kinney Discussion

If you were going to recommend ONE Sleater-Kinney record, what would it be?

Some facts to consider: If the person does not like this record, they will not be buying any more. So this would not be a good time to recommend a record that "needs several listens to really take it all in", or "builds on the work they did on..."

Re: Sleater-Kinney Discussion

Dig Me Out would probably be the most obvious choice.

Re: Sleater-Kinney Discussion

I have five months to decide if I'm into this band, much less in actuality because it will likely sell out. Fast.

Why the sudden urgency?

Re: Sleater-Kinney Discussion

I do not care for the new song. It tempers my excitement for the album. I'll see the tour for certain.

They'll be in town in November. And I assume the show will sell out.

I'm sure it will. I mean, you seem to just now want to be getting into them. They've been around like 20 years. Why the urge?

It didn't do much for me either. But the show I saw on the last tour was one of my all time favorites, so I'll definitely be going.

Very true of course, and there may or may not be a girl I know who's a big fan and I might want to see the show with her. But in reality, they're just a band that has slipped under my radar, and I should have been listening to them all this time. What I've heard from them really seems like my kind of stuff.

How many times do you "discover" a band, and wish you had been into them back when they were playing little clubs? It's too late for that with Sleater-Kinney, of course, but better late than never.

With S-K, I don't think they'll be coming this way too much more often, and if so, hopefully before they're their own tribute band. And even when they were big, they skipped over my town on a lot of their tours. I'm gonna get Dig Me Out sometime in the next week or two, and if it's my cup of tea (which I believe it will be), I'll be checking out more of their material over the summer.

That’s a good a reason.

I hadn’t seen them before they originally disbanded. But like I said in my previous post, the show I saw in 2015 was one of my favorites. Really blew me away and was impressed. Definitely will be worth it and I wouldn’t hesitate on getting tickets.

Re: Sleater-Kinney Discussion

Between Janet leaving and the direction their new music seems to be taking, I imagine I will be jumping off the S-K train.

Sleater-Kinney Asked St. Vincent for a Creative Spark. The Trio Blew Up.
After two and a half decades, the acclaimed band ventures into a different sound on its ninth album, “The Center Won’t Hold” — and moves onward without its longtime drummer.
