Punk band Sleater-Kinney are set to touch down in Australia mighty soon, but before they do, they’ll be featured on a new episode of long-running PBS music program Austin City Limits.
The show has released two of the performance’s eight songs – and interestingly, they’re both older tracks. Below, watch Modern Girl, taken from 2005 album The Woods (those who have read guitarist/vocalist Carrie Brownstein’s book Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl will recognise the title, taken from the lyrics on this track) and I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone, off their 1996 sophomore album Call The Doctor.
The full episode will air this Saturday on PBS (and will be available online shortly after,) and will also see a set from Heartless Bastards. See the full track listing below. Recent episodes have featured Kendrick Lamar, Alabama Shakes and D’Angelo.
