Reseña de álbum

Sleater-Kinney's debut record is a medium-fi blast of thrashy riot grrrl rock. Some tracks are reminiscent of '90s Sonic Youth ("Be Yr Mama"), while others are just blasts of punk angst ("A Real Man"). The group suffers from excessively monotone melody lines, but succeeds with their overall confidence and an understanding of dynamics that is promising. This is a good first record, and a showcase for talent that would later blossom on The Hot Rock.

Pretty darn nice for a first album

Even though I'm a big Sleater-Kinney fan, I was sort of expecting this to be the sort of crazy mess that many punks toss out as their first album (see: Land Speed Records, Husker Du). But this is actually a really great record, or at least something that I'd recommend to any Sleater-Kinney fan (after getting the rest of the rest of the records, of course). If you just want to buy a track or two, I particularly recommend "Be Yr Mama" because it makes me laugh and has a sly riff. I also like "The Day I Went Away," which hints at some of the band's later vocal interplay and subtle song dynamics (note how the song snaps back into the cool beat after the heavy riffing of the chorus).

My Favorite Album, Ever.

This album is the ultimate essence of punk rock. Don't believe any of that other stuff about never selling out because 95% of all punk bands do. But Sleater-Kinney never did. The other punk bands just have image, not the ethics or punk DIY ethics they preach about. As far as I'm concerned all other bands must bow down to this record. "The Last Song" has the best vocals in the entrire world. The screams of raw intensity only fuel it. It is a scream that captures the raw, primal intensity that no other band could ever capture.

"diamonds are a girl's best friend"

The self-titled release sounds like it was recorded in a washing machine, lo-fi production was the desired aesthetic of the riot grrrl movement (the influential Bikini Kill's Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah split with Huggy Bear sounds like it was recorded on a boombox hidden it a metal lunch box, but I digress). Most of the songs are inspired by third wave feminist politics, rape ("A Real Man"), recovered trauma memories of child abuse ("Her Again"), socialized gender roles ("Be Yr Mama"), scene politics and sexual objectification ("Sold Out"). But it is the mournful romantic songs that indicate the eventual sound of Sleater-kinney "The Day I Went Away" has the vocal interplay that would evolve into the simultaneous singing on "Call the Doctor" and "Burn, Don't Freeze!" "Slow Song" is a forgotten Corin sung masterpiece that would probably embarass her today, but has a vulnerable emotional core.


Fecha de formación: Olympia, WA, 1994

Género: Alternativa

Años de actividad: '90s, '00s

Formed in 1994 from the ashes of Heavens to Betsy and Excuse 17, a pair of groups that rode the first wave of the riot grrrl movement, Sleater- Kinney became one of the most important feminist punk rock bands of the '90s. Singer/guitarists Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein first met in 1992, when Tucker was one half of the duo Heavens to Betsy. Brownstein, a classically trained pianist, was so inspired by Tucker and other grrrl musicians like Bikini Kill and Bratmobile (not coincidentally Tucker's...
