This week’s PBS Feature Album is Little Rope by American rockers Sleater-Kinney.

Little Rope is one of the finest, most delicately layered records in the band’s nearly 30-year career. To call the album flawless feels like an insult to its intent – it careens headfirst into flaw, into brokenness, a meditation on what living in a world of perpetual crisis has done to us, and what we do to the world in return.



On the surface, the album’s ten songs veer from spare to anthemic, catchy to deliberately hard-turning. But beneath that are perhaps the most complex and subtle arrangements of any Sleater-Kinney record, and a lyrical and emotional compass pointed firmly in the direction of something both liberating and terrifying: the sense that only way to gain control is to let it go.

Tune in all this week to hear tracks from Little Rope, and PBS Members have the chance to win a copy of the album on vinyl, simply email your name and membership number to   before midnight Sunday February 4.
