Sleater Kinney 2019


#61

I agree, always superb and surprising. I was lucky enough to chat to her after a Quasi gig in Birmingham about five years ago and told her as much!


#62

Was amazing hearing it live when they played in London last time


#63

Was that at the Roundhouse? Amazing!


#64

Yeah, was so happy when they played it


#65

Remember seeing this on setlist.fm and.being irked they didn’t play it in Manchester, but I think Manchester had a good few killers that weren’t played in London also.


#66

Fade would be one of my favourite songs that I’ve never seen live. I’d love if they added it to their setlist on future tours.


#67

Well it’s a given when you like a band. Just reckon that’s a good order to do it in.


#68

I was just messing around - it’s a reference to this…


#69

Aha! Nice!


#70

This makes me feel slightly better for never having seen them live (yet).


#71

Listened to a lot of Sleater-Kinney this weekend, think I forgot just how much I like them. Also, listened through the Wild Flag album and how great is that album too? Super excited for this album!


#72

You probably already know this but if you like Wild Flag keep an eye out for the new Ex Hex album in March. They’re awesome.


#73

Yeah it’s a fantastic song too, feeling a lot of excitement towards the year ahead in music which is nice.


#74

The Ex Hex are coming to the UK for a few dates in May


#75

They’ll probably not play anywhere I can afford to get to atm but I’ll keep my fingers crossed I’m wrong.

Cheers for posting these :+1:


#78

Saw this and mistakenly got all excited about a Sleater Kinney tour.

But Ex Hex is also nice


#79

Reporting back on this…

Pretty great album. Kicks off hard right from the off and doesn’t let up. The guitars, drums and vocals are all fierce - only just seen from their Wiki page that they don’t use a bass. Nice. Their sound has loads of the 80s/90s touchpoints that I love. If I can muster up any criticism, maybe that it’s a bit one paced (ie fast) and too short - that said, just means I have to listen to it all over again once it’s finished :+1:

From reading through the recommendations in this thread, might try The Woods next…

Never listened to Ex Hex before, and excitedly listened. Sound like The Kayas compared to Sleater Kinney.
