This is the best piece I’ve read lately.
Don't think it's been mentioned, so: Carrie and Corin are on the latest Song Exploder, talking about The Future Is Here – a primarily Corin track she originally wrote for a male vocal. Interesting stuff, and you can decide your own take on Carrie's references to Janet.
I totally get this album doesn’t play up to the vocals-guitar-vocals-guitar-DRUMS recipe of the other Sleater-Kinney albums past Call The Doctor but I actually love this album, even with the Carrie centric vocals. I really like all of the members equally and think this is a good effort. I wish Janet stuck it out but I understand her needs and reasoning.
I also hope Janet gets better after her accident. What an unfortunate thing to happen.
Edit: I think The Dog/The Body is one of their best songs and I don’t care who knows!
I'm really into this so far. I didn't really return to No Cities To Love as much as I expected despite it being my gateway into Sleater-Kinney, but I can already guess I'll be replaying this one a lot. I always wondered what would come out if they toned down the loudness and the abrasiveness a little bit, to focus more on atmosphere. I'm just happy they chose to expand their sound and change it up dynamic wise this far into their career.
The answer to that is The Hot Rock.
Is this more serious than she initially let on?
Hope not, and it doesn't look like it – reading through her updates, she's just pretty banged up and will take months to get back out there. With already missing out on the S-K tour money, now cancelling the Quasi gigs and not able to do her (freelancey?) job, it's cool she's got a few bob to see her through.
I'm glad. We love her!
Does she not have health insurance?
Nice! I just listened to Aye Nako earlier this year and liked what I heard.
New song already:
Rocks harder than most of the new album.
(Looks like it comes from the album's sessions as it's Janet on the drums.)
Saw them last night. Great show! They did 29 songs!
Janet speaks about her departure.
Holy shit, that's quite the pull quote.
Not even a single frame of Janet in the new video:
