Sleater-Kinney: Little Rope [Loma Vista]

Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker return with a new Sleater-Kinney record, the follow-up to 2021’s Path of Wellness. The new LP, Little Rope, was borne, in part, out of tragedy: the deaths of Brownstein’s parents in a car accident while vacationing in Italy. In the ensuing months, she turned to music: “I don’t think I’ve played guitar that much since my teens or early twenties,” she said in press materials. “Literally moving my fingers across the fretboard for hours on end to remind myself I was still capable of basic motor skills, of movement, of existing.” Working with producer John Congleton, the band turned songs of grief, loneliness, and transformation into a rich tapestry of indie-pop anthems.
