Sleater-Kinney - Sleater-Kinney [LP] (download)
Sleater-Kinney is an acclaimed, American rock band that formed in
Olympia, Washington in 1994. The band's core lineup consists of Corin
Tucker (vocals and guitar), Carrie Brownstein (guitar and vocals), and
Janet Weiss (drums). Sleater-Kinney were known for their feminist,
left-leaning politics, and were an integral part of the riot grrrl and indie
rock scenes in the Pacific Northwest.
Sleater-Kinney is the first effort from the group, recorded by Nick Carrol
at 486 Victoria Street in Melbourne, Australia, and produced by Tim
Green and the band at the Red House in Olympia, Washington. The
album was originally released in 1995 by the independent queercore
record label Chainsaw Records. The line-up featured Corin Tucker (vocals,
guitar), Carrie Brownstein (guitar, vocals) and Lora Macfarlane (drums).
''While their same-sex one-on-ones aren't exactly odes to joy, they
convey a depth of feeling that could pass for passion.'' [Grade: A-] -
