Sleater-Kinney: The Woods

I didn't think I'd like this album, as I have never been fond of SK. But this is actually pretty damn kick-ass. All the great reviews are probably warranted. http://www.metacritic.com/music/arti...erkinney/woods

modern stoner rock, maybe
avant-garde, a little
but always rockin' out

listen to:

Jumpers
The Fox
What's Mine is Yours

Man, I forgot they had a new one coming out. One Beat kicked seven different kinds of ass, so I'd better grab this one too.

Got it last week, but haven't really gotten into it yet. One Beat did kick much ass, so I'm prepared for a letdown with this one.

I've really liked the one song of theirs I've heard from this album, "Entertain". Been interested in what the rest of the album is like in comparison after seeing all the glowing reviews.

A friend of mine is a huge fan so I've listened to some of their older stuff.

I can't stand that woman's voice. It's like cats howling in protest of being skinned. The music itself is okay, but I can't get past her. At all.

I felt that too, about her voice, on previous albums.

but it works on this for some reason.

Maybe its like Dylan or Corgan or even Oburst...it takes some getting used to

I just got it, and I'm only one track in. Oh, man, anitram, you'd hate this one. She's almost yodeling.

"La-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-nd ho!"

A lot of people hate Carrie's little princess voice too. But fuck a lot of people. I want to have Carrie's babies.

I downloaded two of their songs off insound. I really, really like the music, but I, too, am having a hard time getting past the singer's vocal style/voice. Maybe it grows on you after a while?

For some reason I love Corin's voice. Yes it does sound like cats yowling but I don't know, I love it.

wow, why wasn't there a thread on this already? one of the best albums of the year thus far. and it rocks like a muh fucker. these gals do stoner rock better than queens of the stone age do on their new (shitty) album. i can see how the vocals could be grating, but i dig it.

NEWS FLASH: Scientists have discovered an eighth kind of ass. It was promptly kicked by "Let's Call It Love," along with the first seven. Goddamn.
