Dig Me Out pushes Riot Grrrl out of the basement and onto rock ’n’ roll's main stage. Clocking in at under 37 minutes, the album has two gears: intense and more intense. Carrie Brownstein's stinging guitars (as inspired by classic rock as art punk), Corin Tucker's gale-force wail and Janet Weiss's monster drums veer deceptively close to mania on songs like the title track and "It's Enough" but are actually tense, tight and totally in control. "Turn It On" is a masterpiece of dynamics; an ascending squall drops to a low rumble and then flies into a frenzy. Instead of harmonies, Brownstein and Tucker stick to conversation, offering push-and pull sides of a breakup on "One More Hour" and an ironic examination of women's work on "Little Babies." “It’s everything,” Tucker spits on “Not What You Want,” and it truly is — the sound and fury of a young band at the height of their power. © Qobuz

The Center Won’t Hold, a prophetic title? Barely a month before this 9th record was released, drummer Janet Weiss – one third of the Sleater-Kinney trio since 1995 – announced she was leaving the band in cloudy circumstances.  It remains to be seen whether « The Center » is a political statement -about America, feminism and the internet era – or if that center was actually a reference to the rhythmic foundation which just packed its bags. The previous record, No Cities to Love (2015), was defined by decidedly complex guitar & bass interactions, and a very punk-rock result. Since then, those have been substituted by a slew of electronic éléments :  « For this album, Carrie and I were writing in GarageBand or Logic and trading files back and forth. We wrote plenty of things on guitar but we also started to write with synthesizers, just the most basic things they have in GarageBand. » This new writing process allowed the likes of the synth-pop -techno-apocalyptic track The Future Is Here to come to light, as a conversation about solitude in the information era. The questioning ends with Broken, a piano balad about Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court of the U.S.A.  The Center Won’t Hold is a fairly political album, as is customary with the Portland trio. But a full listen might yield its share of bitterness – 25 years of friendship ended over this album … © Alexis Renaudat/Qobuz

Hi-Res
Delivered after a nine-year hiatus, Sleater-Kinney's eighth album finds the trio more technically proficient but with a revitalized vigor. Delving into post-punk dance beats following a flirtation with classic rock, the band veers closer to their Riot Grrrl roots without sounding childish, churlish or stuck. Forward momentum is the theme, as in how can we all do better, be better? Edgy opener "Price Tag" laments the heavy costs of fast fashion and other seeming capitalist bargains, while "Fangless" is a pre-#TimesUp strike against idol worship. But there's plenty of fun to be had, especially with the shout-along chorus of the title track and "Hey Darling," which finds Tucker coming on like Chrissie Hynde fronting a super-charged Pretenders. ("Gimme Love," meanwhile, unleashes the full force of her hurricane wail.) And, as always, the band stuns when Tucker and guitarist Carrie Brownstein trade vocals, as on "Bury Our Friends" — an interplay of harmonies circling and chasing each other in a march-worthy rallying cry: "We're wild and weary but we won't give in." © Qobuz

Far from the retreat implied in its title, The Woods is another passionate statement from Sleater-Kinney, equally inspired by the call-to-arms of their previous album, One Beat, and the give-and-take of their live sets, particularly their supporting slot on Pearl Jam's 2003 tour. Throughout their career, the band has found ways to refine and elaborate on the fiery spirit that makes them so distinctive without diminishing it. The Woods is no exception -- it may be Sleater-Kinney's most mature and experimental album to date, but unlike most mature and experimental albums released by bands entering their second decade, it doesn't forget to rock like a beast. The album's opening salvo, "The Fox," is shockingly feral, an onslaught of heavy, angry, spiralling guitars, ridiculously loud drums, and Corin Tucker's inimitable, love-them-or-hate-them vocals. It's so crushingly dense that it's hard to believe it came from Dave Fridmann's studio; reportedly, The Woods' sessions were challenging for band and producer alike, but from the results, it's clear that they pushed each other to make some of the best work of both of their careers. Though it may be hard to believe, at first, that this is a Fridmann-produced album, his contributions become a little clearer on tracks like the dysfunctional domesticity of "Wilderness," which has the depth and spaciousness usually associated with his work. However, it's easy enough to hear that The Woods is quintessential Sleater-Kinney. This may be the band's most self-assured sounding work yet -- their music has never lacked confidence and daring, but now they sound downright swaggering: "What's Mine Is Yours" is a subversive nod to Led Zeppelin and also captures Sleater-Kinney's own formidable power as a live act. Tucker's voice and viewpoints are as thoughtful and fierce as ever, and as usual, she's even better when aided and abetted by Carrie Brownstein's harmonies, as on "Jumpers." Capturing both the deeply depressing and liberating sides of suicide, the song moves from moody almost-pop to an intense but still melodic assault; unlike so many bands, Sleater-Kinney can go back and forth between several ideas within one song and never sound forced or muddled. A martial feeling runs through The Woods, but unlike the more overtly political One Beat, dissent is a more of an overall state of mind here. The more literal songs falter a bit, but "Modern Girl" is saved by its sharp lyrics ("I took my money and bought a donut/The hole's the size of the entire world"), while Tucker and Brownstein's dueling vocals and Janet Weiss' huge drums elevate "Entertain" above its easy targets of retro rock and reality TV. However, the songs about floundering or complicated relationships draw blood: "Rollercoaster," an extended food and fairground metaphor for an up-and-down long-term relationship with tough-girl backing vocals and an insistent cowbell driving it along, is as insightful as it is fun and witty. The unrepentantly sexy "Let's Call It Love" is another standout, comparing love to a boxing match (complete with bells ringing off the rounds) and a game of poker. At 11 minutes long, the song might be indulgent (especially by Sleater-Kinney's usually economic standards), but its ebbs and flows and well-earned guitar solos underscore the feeling that the band made The Woods for nobody but themselves. It flows seamlessly into "Night Light," an equally spooky and hopeful song that offers promise, but no easy answers -- a fitting end to an album that often feels more engaged in struggle than the outcome of it. One thing is clear, though: Sleater-Kinney remain true to their ideals, and after all this time, they still find smart, gripping ways of articulating them. © Heather Phares /TiVo

A souvenir of Sleater-Kinney's reunion tour, Live in Paris features a concert recorded at La Cigale on March 20, 2015. The 13-song album opens with "Price Tag," the same song that kicks off 2015's No Cities to Love, and the group understandably pushes the record rather heavily, putting "No Cities to Love" and "Surface Envy" into the set list. Sleater-Kinney touch on many major songs from throughout their career, yet the group's muscle and passion keep this from feeling like nostalgia. Instead, this is a celebration, both of the group's past and its inspired present, and that is more than enough to make this a worthwhile live album. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo
