Sleater-Kinney - "Surface Envy"

New MusicContributor JonesComment

With tracks like "Surface Envy" being let loose on the public like an escaped zoo animal, I think it's safe to say Sleater-Kinney's return from an almost 10-year hiatus has been an explosive one. While the wailing vocals and frantic guitar freakouts here aren't the band's wildest moment on record, the end result is undeniably fun and visceral.

The band plans to drop what is effectively its comeback album on January 20th via Sub Pop Records. The title: No Cities to Love.
