Iconic power trio Sleater-Kinney are back on our radar with the release of a new song. “Here We Come” is the band’s contribution to the 7-inches for Planned Parenthood series, which features contributions from a variety of artists — musicians, writers, comedians, and more — and will benefit the nonprofit organization. The full compilation is out digitally on Oct. 20, and you can stream Sleater-Kinney’s track via Spotify below.

“Here We Come” was initially recorded for Sleater-Kinney’s 2015 comeback album No Cities to Love, but didn’t make the cut. It’s signature Sleater-Kinney sound would ...

Twenty Years of Dig Me Out: A reflection on Sleater-Kinney’s breakout LP

Twenty years ago today, Pacific Northwest rock trio Sleater-Kinney released its third LP, Dig Me Out, a commanding collection of punk-fueled songs with an apt title if there ever was one. We say that on one level because the record was famously recorded during a snowstorm – one of the heaviest snowstorms in Seattle’s recorded history at that point, dumping between two and three feet of accumulation across the North Olympic Peninsula during the final days of 1996. As singer-guitarist ...

Watch Sleater-Kinney cover the CCR classic “Fortunate Son” at the Women’s March on Washington

Sleater-Kinney | Photo by Megan Kelly | keganmellyphotography.tumblr.com

At the hub of this weekend’s Women’s March in Washington DC, Planned Parenthood hosted an expansive benefit concert, with Sleater-Kinney sharing the headlining bill with The National.

Sleater-Kinney brought something extra special to their set, with Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards (as well as The National’s Matt Berninger and Dirty Projectors‘ Dave Longstreth) joining them onstage to perform the Vietnam-era staple “Fortunate Son” by Creedence Clearwater Revival.

Although Sleater-Kinney have included the anti-war protest tune in their set for multiple years, CCR’s classic perfectly fit the outspoken vibe of the day, ...

Iconic power trio Sleater-Kinney celebrated New Year’s Eve with a gig in San Francisco with fellow Pacific Northwesterners The Thermals, and as part of the show, they paid tribute to two late greats that the music world lost in 2016. 

First, S-K itself did their version of George Michael‘s “Faith,” with guitarist Carrie Brownstein taking lead vocal as the crowd screamed in delight.

The showstopper, though, was a cover of David Bowie‘s “Rebel Rebel” performed with Britt Daniel of Spoon (who was on hand for a DJ set earlier in ...
