Corin Tucker’s new record 1,000 Years has finally come out through Kill Rock Stars records, and she recently talked to Exclaim! about lots of cool stuff:
“[Releasing the album is] something that I thought about in the back of my mind, but… I’ve had a lot going on,” Tucker chuckles sleepily over the phone from her home in Portland, OR. “I had written a few songs to do for a benefit show for this place called Reading Frenzy here in Portland. Then I decided, ‘Okay, I should really make a record,’ and then I really had to push myself to get all the songs done.”
There are some great new records up right now for streaming through Spinner.ca’s excellent Listening Party service. Some highlights include Tim Kasher’s The Game Of Monogamy, PS I Love You’s Meet Me At The Muster Station, Clinic’s Bubblegum, and more.

Chunklet’s third book, The Indie Cred Test, is out, and Fucked Up have contributed a song for the 7″ record that is available to people who donate through Kickstarter.
