Sleater-Kinney have announced details of their first album in 10 years, ‘No Cities To Love,’ which is expected to drop 1.19.15. The band’s albums have just been re-issued on vinyl, including a box set of all the releases.
In an interview with NPR, the very busy Carrie Brownstein said:
“I spent a lot of time writing choruses for this record. Melody is was what I was most picky about. I really drove Corin (Tucker) crazy sometimes. We would have choruses that we would work on for hours, days, maybe on and off over a matter of weeks. And we’d think we had solved it, but then I would listen to it later on and decide to discard it, that it wasn’t good enough. I did that with my guitar parts too.
“In the end we were all more scrutinizing with our own parts than we ever have been. I think we didn’t want to take any second of the song for granted, everything had to have an intention and earn its place.”
