Sleater-Kinney-The Woods
Sleater-Kinney were never a "nice" girl band. They were part of the who riotgrrl(sic) scene, built up a cult following, and were loved by all the critics. I respected Sleater-Kinney but never really got what was so so great about them. Unitl now. This is one of the hardest songs I've heard since Refused's "New Noise". Its that heavy. The beginning of "The Fox" is one big FUCK YOU! and I love it! The drums are kick like mule as dissonant chords shift under the pissed off vocals. What's not to like about this song? Nothing thats what. Sleater-Kinney proves that a band can still rock-out without a bass holding down the low end(and no, The White Stripes never did prove that, if that makes any sense). Go out, buy "The Woods", you will not be dissapointed. Toodles.

  • yo, dude. I think the Doors already proved you don't need a bass player...back in the 1960s. To be fair, their songs had bass; they just didn't have a bass player.

  • I don't really care for the Doors, but that's pretty true.
