Yes, that includes UK listeners too.
Seminal ’90s punks Sleater-Kinney are back with their first album in a decade, and No Cities To Love is now available to stream in full via NPR (it’s been available in the US since Monday, but now it’s no longer geoblocked). The album is out on January 20 via Sub Pop, and, unsurprisingly, it sounds brilliant.
Sleater-Kinney’s hiatus had lasted since 2006, but all three were keeping themselves just as busy in the meantime, with Carrie Brownstein forming a new band, Wild Flag, and creating the hilarious Portlandia series, Corin Tucker releasing two albums with the Corin Tucker Band and Janet Weiss drumming for Wild Flag, The Shins, Quasi, Wild Flag and Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks.
Last year the band celebrated their acclaimed run of seven full-length albums with a huge box set containing remastered versions of each one along with a book and special print.
