The Corin Tucker Band: 1000 Years
Buy! - (Kill Rock Stars)
Sleater-Kinney’s lead vocalist has been focusing on raising her kids since the band went on hiatus a few years ago. She’s now back making music, debuting under her own name with an album that’s mostly quieter and more intimate than the music of Sleater-Kinney, but in some ways, it’s also just as powerful. Tucker & co. bring a more varied sound to 1000 years, particularly a greater emphasis on acoustic instrumentation like piano, cello and violin to flesh out the basic rock band lineup. She also hasn’t lost her touch as a songwriter, exploring the everyday trials of love and being a mother with her typically unblinking honesty, while also laying bare the economic devastation to working families caused by the new Depression. 9/23/2010 - Don Yates
