Sleater-Kinney - Start Together cover

Here’s some rad news for the first day back to real life after a holiday weekend: Sleater-Kinney, one of history’s most righteously ass-kicking rock bands, will release a 7xLP box set containing all seven of their studio albums remastered from the original analog tapes. Entitled Start Together, it will be limited to 3,000 copies. According to a press release, “The set will include all seven albums pressed on colored vinyl and is accompanied by a 44-page hardcover book featuring never-before-seen photos of the band, as well as a limited edition print.” Fans who pre-order Start Together can download “high-quality remastered files” of all the albums starting today. Each remastered record is also available for individual purchase right now. Seeing as the band’s last album came out in 2005, let’s cross our fingers that this reissue campaign is a precursor to a 10-years-later reunion tour in 2015. When we spoke to Carrie Brownstein last winter, she wouldn’t rule it out!

Start Together is out 10/21 on Sub Pop. Pre-order it here. The full remastered catalog is available now for individual purchase via iTunes, Amazon, and Sub Pop.

  1. Nice.

    Favourite Sleater-Kinney album? I’d go for The Woods, which is just stunning.

  2. Nice. This seems like a fine time for me to voice what might be an extremely unpopular opinion: I think The Hot Rock is their best album. Vastly underappreciated, at least. But all of them are great, and Dig Me Out through The Woods is one of the best five album runs in recent memory.

    • Agreed. The interplay amongst members is intricate and stunning. The songwriting is top notch.

      I actually think that’s the record that’s aged the best as well.

    • I think the only extremely unpopular opinion would be to say ‘Sleater-Kinney are rubbish’. Thankfully nobody’s insane enough to say that.

      I agree. I’ve listened to The Hot Rock at least 10x more than any of the others and it’s my favorite of theirs. Although listening to One Beat sometimes makes me flop about it.
