The Corin Tucker Band 1,000 Years
Release Date: October 5, 2010
Label: Kill Rock Stars
It was early 2009, and Corin Tucker (formerly of Sleater-Kinney) was performing at a benefit show in her hometown of Portland, OR airing out a couple of new songs. Another benefit, and another pair of unheard tunes followed a few weeks later. The reaction from friends, fans, and perfect strangers was unanimous.
Cue the wrenching rhythms and hard-angle melodies, the slashing guitars and wildly passionate vocals. Only now the hard edges come nestled in lush weaves of acoustic guitars, keyboards, interlocking percussion, even cellos and violins, which places 1,000 Years deep into Tucker's creative headwaters - another addition to her 20-year catalogue of restless songs for restless spirits.
