Sleater-Kinney is one of bands that I became a fan of in the late 90’s when I was in my GIRL POWER! phase. Obviously the Spice Girls may have been the jumping off point of the whole thing, but then I realized girls can also kick ass with instruments which made the ladies of Sleater-Kinney and other women-only/heavy bands awesome in my book as a teenager. So yeah, i’m a little bit of a riot grrrl in my heart.
I’m also glad that Sleater-Kinney has kept on creating music for years now and I love their newest music as much as their first tracks. I always get a little nervous when bands go on a hiatus because it may mean no more of the ol’ band I know and love, and I just hope they stay in the music scene in a different shape or form. Recent events that have prompted them to record a new album for a January 2015 release has me all sorts of excited. The track above was just posted on their SoundCloud page right after they did an Ask-Us-Anything on Reddit today and the track below is another new track.
