“Girl Groups: Because no one can do it alone.”
As you’ve probably figured out by now, I have particular affection for YA novels that reference music that I like. So when the BFF character in We Were Never Here by Jennifer Gilmore gives the main character an “old-school” mix CD of girl bands with the words above stenciled on the case, I cheered. She’s right. We can’t do it alone, and while music can’t fix our problems, it can save us. As the protagonist notes in the book: “There are different ways to be saved.”
On that note, here is some Sleator-Kinney. Because you can’t do it alone.
Also on my girl group playlist: Bruise Violet.
One thought on “Monday Morning Music with Sleater-Kinney”
It kind of depends on the day. There are weepy days when only Dido or Jenny Dalton will do, but other times really call for Butt Trumpet or Kitten Forever. If I’m cleaning, I sometimes hit up Cyndi Lauper and see where the 80s take me.
