This Song: Carrie Brownstein from Sleater-Kinney

By: Elizabeth McQueen

Sleater-Kinney’s 9th album “The Center Won’t Hold” came out in August.  The album, which was produced by St. Vincent, finds the band exploring lots of new sonic territory.  Listen as Carrie Brownstein explains how “Stay” by Rihanna inspired her to write the last track on the new record,”Broken.”  Plus, you can hear why she doesn’t think of this album as a sonic departure for the band, but instead sees it as a product of the band’s expanded musical vocabulary.
