Limited Edition. Olympia's power-trio finds themselves deep in the trees for their latest jolt of righteous rage. There's definitely something primordial about their hooky rock ravings as they're jamming in the The Woods, which, not coincidentally, is the name of their latest CD. Natural and scary. Sub Pop. 2005.

Why didn't S-K always sound like this?Sept. 30 2008
- Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Forget the bright and precise sound of old Sleater-Kinney. The raw, snarling, distorted, always-pushing-the-envelope sound of The Woods-era S-K blows away everything that came before it.
"Entertain," believe it or not, is the mellowest song on this EP. "Everything" is what Never Mind the Bollocks would sound like if it had been made by three angry grrrls--including the second coming of Keith Moon, Janet Weiss--instead of a bunch of materialistic punks. Finally, you get a live version of "The Fox," one of the best tracks on The Woods.
