Back in 2003, I remember when a friend had given me two burned CDs with the album titles Dig Me Out and The Hot Rock scribbled in black sharpie across their disc covers. We would put them on while we drove aimlessly around the OC in search of something to do. I thought Corin Tucker had the strangest singing style but I couldn’t stop listening.
I was 15 then, and was just getting into everything Kill Rock Stars. Now that they’re touring again, and just having released a new album, I thought I would go back to this earlier era of Sleater-Kinney and put together some of my favorite songs. Listen below.
