SPOTIFY PLAYLIST: Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia/Sleater-Kinney)
Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney, Wild Flag and the hilarious sketch-based cultural send-up Portlandia (which just returned to TV on IFC), is the rare artist that can sincerely rock with the best of them while tenderly mocking many of the things that sometimes make contemporary culture so eye-rollingly ridiculous.
Maybe you just saw the show and want to delve into her musical catalog or maybe you just know she rules already and want something of a “greatest hits” (as if that’s even possible in this case).
