Sleater-Kinney’s Corinne Tucker prepares debut solo record with members of Unwound, Golden Bears

Posted April 9th, 2010 by eric

Corinne Tucker, my favorite voice from Sleater-Kinney, is set to release her solo debut this October, which she has unfortunately described as “a middle-aged mom record.” Yikes. Not a good way to get the momentum going. Conversely, she has employed Unwound’s Sara Lund on drums, which definitely perks my ears back up. Fleshing out the line-up is Seth Lorinczi of Golden Bears, whose studio, Little Golden Books, Tucker used to record the album up in Portland, Oregon. Tucker cites The Slits, The Raincoats, The English Beat, and Sinead O’Connor as influences for her first-ever solo effort. Tucker has also reaffirmed that Sleater-Kinney is merely on hiatus, not broken up, as guitarist Carrie Brownstein concurred with recently in an interview at IFC. [via Spinner]
