What an interesting time to be alive. After a hiatus of nearly 10 years, and a similar time frame since their last album, Washington based femme-punk trio Sleater-Kinney are offering up a new album for your consideration.
Making little to no effort to fuel the rumour mill regarding a possible reunion before a few weeks ago, Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker, and Janet Weiss ushering in the new year with No Cities To Love is a pleasant surprise.

Many will, of course, recognise musician turned writer turned actress, Carrie Brownstein as one third of the riotous threesome. Brownstein currently stars on IFC's Portlandia alongside SNL alum Fred Armisen.
No Cities To Love is currently streaming on NPR ahead of its January 20th release, unless you don't live in the United States then it's streaming on Soundcloud. A little bit.
