Review: No Cities to Love by Sleater-Kinney

No Cities to Love by Sleater-KinneyIt’s been ten years since Sleater-Kinney released their last record, The Woods, and ten years since they band went on an indefinite hiatus. No Cities to Love, the grrl trio’s surprising yet inevitable comeback, shows they haven’t lost their form. In fact, it seems they’ve gotten much more frustrated: the circumstances around their previous records haven’t changed much, and so their politics haven’t. too, except for it being tighter and snappier. It seems the break (and the many projects they’ve gone to – Corin Tucker’s solo project; Janet Weiss joining Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, and later, Wild Flag with Carrie Brownstein) has sharpened their senses, and the result is an album more rejuvenating than ever… despite the frustrations it is all about. [NB]4/5
