EDITORS’ NOTES

Just as Sleater-Kinney were primed to explode following 1997’s Dig Me Out, the Olympia trio pivoted from the spotlight and released their most inscrutable album. Sour guitars interlock like walls of brambles while Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker describe paranoia and broken hearts. They trade lines and fragmented love stories as if short on oxygen, and drummer Janet Weiss provides the scampering anxiety that powers “One Song for You.” The weird séance of “Get Up,” while not the band’s flashiest song, could be their anthem.
