Preview Sleater-Kinney’s Surprise New Song Possibly From “1/20/15″ Reunion Album

People have been speculating about a Sleater-Kinney reunion forever -- especially since Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss' other band Wild Flag broke up a year ago -- and Brownstein didn't exactly shoot down the idea in her interview with Stereogum last January.

Q&A: Carrie Brownstein On Writing Her Memoir, Portlandia‘s Fourth Season, And The Future Of Sleater-Kinney

Few indie rock alums have managed to enjoy a career as successful -- and as wildly varied -- as that of Carrie Brownstein. For those of us who came of age in the early '90s, Brownstein was already an icon due to her role as a vocalist and unstoppable guitar shredder in Excuse 17 and… More »

Watch Free Energy Cover Sleater-Kinney

Their album Love Sign was one of the more delirious and underrated blasts of power-pop fizz that anyone has released this year, and the great Philly rock band Free Energy are not done blowing hooks through the back of your head.

Sleater-Kinney Albums From Worst To Best

Sleater-Kinney: the name suggests a joint sociological survey, or perhaps a university residence hall. Turns out it's the Lacey, WA street on which the band held practices.

Corin Tucker Band – “Neskowin” (Stereogum Premiere)

This fall, the former Sleater-Kinney lead yowler Corin Tucker and her Corin Tucker Band return with their new album Kill My Blues.
