No Cities To Love is the name of the new long player featuring that famous Sleater-Kinney core made up of Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein on vocals/guitar with drummer Janet Weiss keeping the beat.  Clandestinely recorded at San Francisco’s Tiny Telephone Recordings earlier this year, the disc was produced by Jon Goodmanson, who helmed the last four Sleater-Kinney LPs. Expect No Cities To Love to drop Jan 19-20 on SubPop.
