Sleater-Kinney - The Woods


  • £16.99

Sleater-Kinney's seventh album, The Woods, was originally released in 2005 by Sub Pop. 

Never a band to rest on their laurels, The Woods, recorded by Dave Fridmann, marked a further reinvention of Sleater-Kinney's sound, borrowing heavily from 'classic rock' guitar tropes and twisting them through a post-punk avant-pop lens. From the first notes, the album is noticeably heavier than their previous records, and is one of Sleater-Kinney's most distinctive, well-formed, and successful albums of their career. 

The drums are bigger, the guitars are bigger, and the tunes are bigger! But along with the more abrasive and guitar-stretching songs, The Woods features the single 'Jumpers' and tender fan-favourite 'Modern Girl.' 

Formed in 1994 by guitarists/vocalists Corin Tucker (Heavens To BetsyCadillaca) and Carrie Brownstein (Excuse 17The Spells), both active in the riot grrrl scene of the early-90's, Sleater-Kinney were joined in 1996 by drummer Janet Weiss (Quasi), and their drive for continual re-invention and exploration of their sound led them to become one of the most acclaimed and successful indie-rock bands of their time.
