If there was any music scene I would love to see resurrected, it would be riot grrrl. There is way too much sexism in the indie scene right now, and not nearly enough women strapping on guitars and screaming into the mic about what it means to be a girl.
The creation of Wild Flag - with members of Sleater-Kinney, Helium, and the Minders – brought a little bit of that scene into this decade, but I need more than one band to fulfill that musical need.
That’s why I’m totally digging on the new track from Corin Tucker Band. Corin Tucker has been making badass music for decades, having been in Heavens to Betsy and Sleater-Kinney, among other bands. Then, in 2010, she struck it out on her own, releasing an album titled 1,000 Years.
Now, she’s back with a new album, Kill My Blues, which will be released September 18th via Kill Rock Stars. Hear a preview of the album with the track “Groundhog Day”, courtesy of Consequence of Sound:

Listen for: the Sleater-Kinney-style vocals that you know you need more of in your life.
If you’re wondering where Throwback Thursday went, don’t worry. It’ll be back soon!
