14th Anniversary Special
Heavy Psychedelic & Underground Rock of the last 14 years (2005-2019)

"The Woods" by Sleater-Kinney (2005)
Sleater-Kinney "The Woods"  2005 (USA)
This week on the show we're celebrating (gasp!) 14 years of the Kosmik Radiation show! Featuring some of the best heavy, psychedelic & underground rock of the KR Show era (2005-2019). This week's classic album was notable upon release for being a total departure from the tight, trebly punk rock Sleater-Kinney became known for in the 1990's when they were one of the most acclaimed "riot grrrl" bands - and also because the band broke up immediately following the tour for The Woods (but spoiler alert! They reformed a decade later to record a new album and make this cute video with the kids from Bob's Burgers). The three members of the band have come to be icons of indie rock: Corin Tucker (lead vocal & rhythm guitar which often takes the place of the bass player S-K has never had), Carrie Brownstein (lead guitar & second vocalist, sketch comedy star), and one of the best rock drummers of recent decades: Janet Weiss (also member of Quasi with her ex-husband and the short-lived super group Wild Flag with Brownstein, as well as Stephen Malkmus' Jicks during that band's peak period).
