Sleater-Kinney came crashing out of the ’90s Pacific Northwest riot grrrl scene, setting a new bar for punk’s political insight and emotional impact. Hailed as “America’s best rock band” by Greil Marcus in Time Magazine, and as “America’s best punk band ever. EVER” by Rob Sheffield in Rolling Stone, the band put out seven searing albums in 10 years before going on indefinite hiatus in 2006.
Sleater-Kinney brought their 10-year hiatus to a close with the release of their 2015 album No Cities to Love, and the band hasn’t slowed down since that release. After teasing that a new album would be coming in 2019 and that St. Vincent would be handling production, the trio returned with “Hurry on Home,” the first single from their upcoming album The Center Won’t Hold. Now, the band is back with the album’s release date, as well as as another new single called “The Future Is Here.”

The punky Los Angeles band Cherry Glazerr released its first album, “Haxel Princess,” before its songwriter, singer and guitarist, Clementine Creevy, had graduated from high school in 2015. By then, she had also held a recurring role (leading a fictional band) in the series “Transparent”; done some modeling; and started writing Cherry Glazerr’s second album, “Apocalipstick,” She has soaked up a history of women’s punk, post-punk and grunge, glancing toward Blondie, Siouxsie and the Banshees, the Go-Gos, Sleater-Kinney and Hole among others, and she makes melody a priority whether a song barrels ahead at punk speed or digs into a sharp-elbowed midtempo riff. On “Apocalipstick,” Cherry Glazerr has grown from three members to four, and it moves beyond the lo-fi sound and throwaway sarcasm of the band’s debut. Ms. Creevy, 19, has a lot on her mind: female solidarity, junk food, insecurity, wildness, even thoughts about professionalism. And she sings like she has most of the answers.
