With the comeback of Sleater-Kinney and Portlandia just ending it’s 5th season, it seems as if Carrie Brownstein is in her creative prime. To add to it all, Penguin Books has announced that on October 27 Brownstein’s memoir will be released. Titled Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl, Brownstein is to focus on her times in Sleater-Kinney, the three-piece all female punk band from Olympia, Washington, before their eight year hiatus in 2006.
This will not be the first writing published by Brownstein; during the band’s hiatus she wrote articles for Slate and The Believer, as well as publishing a blog for NPR Music called “Monitor Mix”.
This January Sleater-Kinney released their first album post-hiatus titled No Cities to Love, to critical acclaim. You can purchase a CD and buy concert tickets here.
Listen to Sleater-Kinney’s song “Oh!” off of their 2002 album One Beat below.
