Recording engineer: Steven Kray, with technical assistance from Randy Layton
Corin Tucker spent over a decade as part of Sleater-Kinney, releasing seven albums with Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss before the band called a hiatus in 2006. While her former bandmates have stayed busy in the public eye, Tucker has been laying relatively low in Portland, embracing her role as the mother of two small children.
The former (and future?) Sleater-Kinney singer/guitarist joins us with her new band (Seth Lorinczi on guitar and keys, Sara Lund on percussion and vocals, and Mike Clark on bass) to play from last year’s 1,000 Years debut, a collection influenced largely by the domestic change of pace she’s experienced over the past four or five years. More subtle, personal songs are the result, though Tucker isn’t afraid to still raise the volume here and there.
