Sleater-Kinney's Carrie Brownstein Scores Feminist Documentary
Published Aug 09, 2010While one-time Sleater-Kinney member Corin Tucker has been busy putting the finishing touches on her "middle-aged mom record," we haven't heard quite so much out of her former bandmate, Carrie Brownstein. That's about to change, as Brownstein is getting ready to roll out new music in the form of a score for the documentary !Women Art Revolution.
The film was directed by Lynn Hershman Leeson, and focuses on the feminist art movement of the 1970s. It compiles 40 years worth of footage and the soundtrack includes Laurie Anderson, Janis Joplin, Sleater-Kinney and the Gossip.
As for her original score, Brownstein previously told Pitchfork that it was recorded with Sleater-Kinney/Quasi/Jicks drummer Janet Weiss. The songs were produced by Tucker Martine, who has worked with the Decemberists and is currently recording My Morning Jacket.
The documentary will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 12. You can watch a trailer here, which features some clips of music. You can also hear music in the clip embedded below.
Thanks to Pitchfork for the heads-up.
