Sleater-Kinney recently swung by NPR studios to deliver a Tiny Desk Concert. Guitarists/vocalists Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein performed two songs from their new album Little Rope and two tracks off their landmark 2005 LP, The Woods.

Little Rope arrived on January 19 via Loma Vista Recordings. Seater-Kinney released The Woods on May 24, 2005, marking their first release on famed Seattle label Sub Pop Records.


Brownstein — who is no stranger to National Public Radio as a former writer for the NPR Music blog Monitor Mix — and Tucker were joined for their Tiny Desk by Sleater-Kinney touring members Angie Boylan, Toko Yasuda and Teeny Lieberson.

Sleater-Kinney also collaborated with a string quartet of Nataly Merezhuk, Celaya Kirchner, Kimia Hesabi and Erin Murphy Snedecor, “whom the band had just met in what Corin Tucker described as a ‘blind date,’” as per NPR Music.

Sleater-Kinney kicked off the session by taking it back to The Woods with “Jumpers” and “Modern Girl.” Tucker and Brownstein then turned to Little Rope with “Say It Like You Mean It” before wrapping with the record’s closer, “Untidy Creature.”
