Pride Month 2012: Corin Tucker Band -- "Groundhog Day"

The good news: Corin Tucker (of Sleater-Kinney fame) released a new single today.

The bad news: You have to go to Pitchfork to download it.

"Groundhog Day" is very much a return to fighting form. As much as I enjoyed 10,000 Years, I missed the swagger characteristic of Sleater-Kinney songs (also, the fact that it was inspired by Twilight kind of killed it for me.)

The song demands to know what's happened to feminism -- after all, Corin was away from the scene for a few years, and now things have gone back to the way they were when the riot grrl movement began. I dunno...maybe it's because one of its spokespeople wrote an album about unrequited love because she loved Twilight so much?

Yeah. I'm not going to let that one go. But the song is fantastic. And Kill My Blues is coming out on September 18. I'm super stoked.
