So, earlier this year I was made aware of the existence of this little show called Portlandia. It stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, and they're probably two of my favorite people on the planet right now. Their skits are ridiculously funny, plus they seem like amazing people to boot. Soon after, I discovered Carrie was also in the band Sleater-Kinney. Sleater- Kinney? That's right, I had no clue who they were. But that's alright. You see, I am now in a envious position compared to any of you people who already like the band. How do I mean? Because I now get to experience their music for the very first time.
Seven albums lie in wait for me to dip my ears into. My current target is their last studio album, The Woods, which was released in 2005. I have to say, given how much I'm enjoying it so far, I've become quite excited already. With Spotify as my weapon, my task by the end of the year is to have their entire discography under my belt. And maybe one or two sitting in my collection. My obsession with Portlandia has escalated them to "must-hear" status. Here's to you, Sleater-Kinney, and the many exhuberant months ahead!
