So, remember when I talked about Angry Women With Guitars? I'm amazed I've gotten this far without talking about Sleater-Kinney. I got into them with their album The Woods in 2005, which was their seventh album, and I scoured the music stores both on and offline to find their back catalog. They were basically a band invented to play explicitly for me.
And then I found out that they had broken up. Just about the time I got into them. Which is exactly my kind of luck.
And then, last year, they announced they were getting back together. And then they started streaming music. And I hear that moment in an album when there's a song that just sings to you (no pun intended).
That's what I felt when I heard No Cities to Love, which is the title track of the new album.
The album drops January 20th, but you can stream it on NPR.
