Sleater-Kinney
The Center Won't Hold

They came back and they stayed back. After their 10 years hiatus ended with 2015's brilliant No Cities to Love, Sleater-Kinney kept writing together to create The Center Won't Hold. The album was produced with great care by St. Vincent, and sees the band exploring personal themes the only way they know how. By being a very good rock band.

Sleater-Kinney
No Cities To Love

They called Carrie Brownstein home from Portlandia; they politely asked Corin Tucker to stop making her quite excellent solo albums; they pointed out that the Shins aren't cool to Janet Weiss. Sleater-Kinney, one of the most important punk rock bands of the modern era, are back, and No Cities To Love is their new document. It's been ten years. We made it.

Sleater-Kinney
Live in Paris

The reformed Sleater-Kinney, captured live in concert in 2015. Live In Paris is a punchy and fierce document of a great live band, as any attendees of recent shows can attest. CD, cassette tape and multiple vinyl editions are available, packaged in a pleasingly old-school photo-collage sleeve. On Sub Pop.

Sleater-Kinney
Dig Me Out

This is not the Kinks. As evident in the artwork, Sleater-Kinney's third record, 'Dig Me Out', takes its influence less from the raucous underbelly of punk rock and more from the traditions of rock 'n' roll. That said, it's still what you'd call punk rock: full of the same fury and lyrical bite, but with "woah oh oh!"s and pop hooks. 

Sleater-Kinney
Call The Doctor

The all guitars, no bass 'Call The Doctor' saw Sleater-Kinney only two records into their career, at their most political -- the political is of course the personal, as we know, and these songs were inspired by Corin Tucker's experience in a commercial and typically dead-end job. 'Call The Doctor' continues to have Sleater-Kinney's fuck-it punk rock abandon, made before 'Dig Me Out' came along and paid tribute to rock 'n' roll.

Sleater-Kinney
The Woods

Arguably Sleater-Kinney’s definitive statement, 2005’s ‘The Woods’ is given a nice little remastering job by Sub Pop for this new reissue. As fans will already know, this is one of the best and brightest records of the post-riot grrl era. On ‘The Woods’ Sleater-Kinney take the embattled energy of Breeders and Bikini Kill and run it through Sonic Youth’s knotty songwriting style. This album set the scene for the emergence of acts like Big Thief a few years down the line.

Sleater-Kinney
All Hands On The Bad One

The strikingly political punks and part-time indie rockers of Sleater-Kinney wrote songs about crumbling ideals, feminism and corrupt American infrastructures. 'All Hands On The Bad One' was their fifth record, boasting their sharpest melodies and most furious riffs, dabbling in pop exercises while remaining vitally furious.

Sleater-Kinney
The Hot Rock

Sleater-Kinney's fourth record kept up their knack for iconic artwork, with that classic picture of the dejected-looking band of punks hailing a cab. Other than that, though, it continued their conscious detachment from punk rock as an art-form, the band transitioning into a more indie rock sound with intricate guitar duelling and personal lyricism. They still tear shit up, though.

Sleater-Kinney

It's the very first Sleater-Kinney record, and it's called 'Sleater-Kinney'. In their earliest inception, the band were nothing but punk rock abandon, creating sharp songs anywhere between one minute and three. This record cuts off at an abrupt twenty-two minutes, with tracks reminiscent of both the peak years of grunge and straight-up hardcore punk.

Sleater-Kinney
One Beat

Sleater-Kinney's 'One Beat' saw them stepping outside of their comfort zone, incorporating experimental rock elements into their sound and steering their politics in a new direction. It's an energetic indie rock record with new flourishes of pop songwriting, synths, horns and more. Janet Weiss is on usual top form here, she's one of the most underrated drummers ever that's for sure.
