Sleater-Kinney have been staples in the indie rock scene for the past two and half decades, and recently released their self-produced 10th album, Path of Wellness. While it would be easy to just geek out over the band's musical accomplishments, I wanted to dive deeper into their inspirations by inviting Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein to guest DJ on "8 Track."
For their eight songs, Corin picked a “heroes” theme, and it made for some great storytelling and conversation around an impressive list of artists that have helped shape them professionally and personally.
- The Go-Betweens - "Love Goes On" (Carrie)
- Lauryn Hill - "Everything Is Everything" (Corin)
- Patti Smith Group - "Ask the Angels" (Carrie)
- Missy Elliott - "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" (Corin)
- The Jam - "That’s Entertainment" (Carrie)
- Ike & Tina Turner - "River Deep, Mountain High" (Corin)
- Betty Davis - "Anti Love Song" (Carrie)
- Chaka Khan - "I Feel For You" (Corin)
