In a new interview with Vulture, Sleater-Kinney chatted about the new album, which is their first since the departure of drummer Janet Weiss. In the interview, they reveal that the drums on the album were split between touring drummer Angie Boylan, Brian Koch, and Vincent LiRocchi. They also went on to chat about being referred to as a “duo” now by press:
“Corin Tucker: I love it. ‘Duo.’ That’s so funny. I mean, we’re happy with working together and being collaborators. It’s how we started the band a long, long time ago. It was based on our ideas and our guitar playing. We’ve had the great privilege of working with a lot of different people over the years. I think that all came into play when we were putting this record together. We were able to find local people who could come in, amid all the Covid rules, and play on the record.
Carrie Brownstein: That “duo” terminology … I didn’t really think about it until I started seeing some of the press, because I just think of us as Sleater-Kinney. Whatever we’re doing as Sleater-Kinney is Sleater-Kinney. I’m aware that people need these linguistic markers to help them understand.”
