The song leaves no "Doubt" (eh?) that Tucker's new album, 1,000 Years, will scratch the itch that fans of her old band have for similar material; the punky single features familiar dueling guitars and Tucker's signature vibrato over a classic rock sound that The Woods - S-K's last, fantastic record - saw the group moving toward.
Meanwhile, Tucker's former bandmate, Carrie Brownstein, provided the (similarly S-K reminiscent) score for upcoming documentary, !Women Art Revolution, which covers the history of the feminist art movement. Plus, it was just announced that Brownstein and SNL's Fred Armisen will co-write and co-star in Portlandia, a half hour, Lorne Michaels-produced series, for IFC. So, even if we don't get a Sleater-Kinney reunion within the next five years - as Brownstein mentioned last spring might happen - it shouldn't be difficult to check out its members' new work.
Tucker heads out for a mini-tour in October, while !Women Art Revolution opens at the Toronto Film Festival next month.
