It can’t be a coincidence that the drums are the first thing we hear. Path Of Wellness, Sleater-Kinney’s new album, opens with some busy push-pull riffage and with percussion falling all over itself. We hear clings and clangs and shakers and glass bottles. We hear a big, funky polyrhythmic stew — the type of drums that Janet Weiss would never play. Weiss isn’t that type of drummer. She’s great, and she’s never ostentatious. She stays in the pocket, letting everything else in the song explode around her while holding the center. For their first album since Weiss left the band, Sleater-Kinney kick things off by letting the drums go wild. It’s so hard not to read so much into that decision.

Later this week, the great indie rock institution Sleater-Kinney will release their new album Path Of Wellness, their first since becoming a de facto duo after the departure of longtime drummer Janet Weiss. We don’t really know how that will sound! Judging by the early singles, though, the album marks a sort of retrenchment. After experimenting with glimmering keyboards and glammy textures on 2019’s The Center Won’t Hold, Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker, producing themselves for the first time, are going back to a relatively low-key and less punk-inspired take on the homespun indie rock of their early records.
