Publisher's Summary

Sleater-Kinney’s co-leaders Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein dig into 25 years of shared history-making music and making noise. Listen to this bold duo speak openly about the places, people, and movements that have shaped their career as well as the evolution of their creative and personal relationship. The bandmates and friends trace how their ambitions and their relationship have continued to inform each other and how they’ve navigated through the ups and downs for the sake of the band and their art. They move seamlessly through the different chapters of the band, sharing peeks behind the curtain, like the story behind their beloved autobiographical song “One More Hour”, which they wrote about their own experience breaking up as a romantic couple and finding their way back to each other as friends and bandmates. 

They dive into their ongoing journey from their beginnings out of the Riot Grrrl scene in Olympia, Washington, to Carrie’s triumph with the TV show Portlandia, and on to their continued efforts to challenge each other and meet the political moment. It’s a deeply personal and exciting exploration of themes that have followed them throughout their career, like anxiety, activism, feminism, LGBTQ identity, motherhood, friendship, creativity, and change - all illustrated by evocative new recordings that’ll make you turn up the volume. 

This entry to the Words + Music series features eight exclusive new versions of songs spanning the band’s 10-album discography (so far), from “One More Hour” and “One Beat” to “Path of Wellness”, and “Worry With You” from their 2021 album Path of Wellness

About Sleater-Kinney

Sleater-Kinney is an indie rock band formed in Olympia, Washington, by its founding members Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein in 1994. Their 1997 landmark album Dig Me Out earned a spot on Rolling Stone’s "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time." During 2015, the band returned from a decade-long hiatus with the triumphant No Cities To Love, which landed on dozens of year-end lists, reaching #1 for The Daily Beast and The Skinny. In 2019, they teamed up with St. Vincent (another Words + Music artist) to produce the Sleater-Kinney album The Center Won’t Hold. Throughout their career, the band has sold out shows on multiple continents. They released their tenth studio album, Path of Wellness, in June of 2021.

It makes me want to be in a band again!

I found their story to be inspiring and made me wish I continued with the band after high school. Maybe it's not too late...

Path Of Wellness... and painful anxiety.

in 99 I had no idea about Riot Girl... this was a good way for Brownstein and Tucker to let people kinda get caught up on what happened with them during that time and what happened after the fallout... Brownstein is still really hesitant about divulging any real information, so it does still sound like a lot of word salad but she is an artisan of her craft... she is not PR. I personally would rather have good art from someone who doesn't sell it well, than bad art from a talented sales person

Ancient memories

This has been a great listen but made me sad nostalgic (so I haven't finished yet). I think I remember Corin Tucker asking for old film footage of the band elsewhere. I filmed the Chez What? Portland complete show (with C.B. BARNES BAND opening) back in the early 90s (< 50 people there?). Pre cell phones so it was on an old Sony cam and sadly is gone now, Amazed how big they have become. But they deserve it and I do love hearing the stories now. Also remember a show at The End? (can't remember the club name,) But I remember the band stopped mid show to tell someone in the audience what a great dancer she was - and she was - people around her gave her space to dance - she was just that fascinating, Always like to see what Sleater-Kinney have done and what they have for the future.

Emotional

I grew up with this band. From call the doctor to dig me out and now...One More Hour was always the song I would play and cry and feel the emotions I could never articulate. Hearing the stories behind the songs made me cry again and feel my heart. I got to see them live only once in 2002 in Cincinnati... amazing time! Love this audible! Thank you for making it... xoxo

Inspiring & Down to Earth

For me, I’m often looking to other people’s stories and how they navigate challenges to help me on my own journey. Maybe it’s a skill I picked up at an early age being the youngest child that often watched my siblings. Maybe it’s just human nature. Listening to Carrie and Corine talk about the start of Sleater-Kinney and their musical collaboration inspires me to push through my own challenges as a musician and just as a human being.

There’s a sense of realness and openness as they talk about the ups and downs of Sleater-Kinney throughout the years. I highly recommend this to any aspiring musician, performing artist, Portlandia fans, mothers with careers, and anyone who loves Sleater-Kinney of course!

Love Me Some S-K

My biggest complaint is that I think I could’ve taken another few hours-plus of their story… can they do a series where they take apart each album and what the songs meant to them?

I mean I know it’s a big ask, but I REALLY enjoyed this program and it made me even more excited to see them live again this summer.

So much fun!

If you love S-K you'll love this! Dialogue about the band and the music, and songs! Great for a road trip or commute.
