Musician Nick Palmer (thedangeros.com) joins Bill and Brian to discuss Sleater-Kinney's 'breakout' 7th album, the Woods (2005, Sub Pop). Nick describes discovering the band while working at Journeys in the mall, and then thinking the distortion on his pirated copy was a mistake until he bought the album and the liner notes told him that Dave Fridmann was the producer. We talk about Janet Weiss's drumming skills, Carrie Brownstein's rockstar presence, Corin Tucker's soaring vocals, why the band doesn't need a bass player, sexist micro-agressions and pronoun choice, whether or not the last track is any good, how the band should be viewed as one of the greatest of their time, and more as we make our way through the album track by track!
