Sleater-Kinney working on new LP

Portlandia‘s final season begins airing January 18 on IFC, which means co-creator Carrie Brownstein has a little more time on her hands. What to do? A new Sleater-Kinney record. As revealed in a new interview with Billboard, Brownstein, Corin Tucker and Janet Weiss are back in the studio for the follow-up to 2015’s No Cities to Love“Now, just so you know, we’re going to do this very slowly,” Brownstein told Billboard. “It’s an ongoing conversation.”

Brownstein is also directing her first feature film, Fairy Godmother, which plays off the fantasy character trope of the title. Says Deadline: “When sought-after Fairy Godmother Faye is hired by a mind-bogglingly gorgeous teenage client, Kenzie, to find her true love with the hottest prince in the land, Faye finds herself facing an unfamiliar challenge when the prince starts falling for her instead.” That movie’s due out this year.

As for her Portlandia co-star Fred Armisen, he’s got a new Netflix special that combines his two loves, comedy and drumming. It’s called For Drummers Only and was filmed at Great American Music Hall in San Francisco in front of an audience made up of 100% drummers. “The idea is, the jokes, the impressions, the specificity of drum hardware, drum equipment, drum stereotypes, drummers’ styles, that’s what the comedy is going to be about” Fred told The Trap Set podcast. Release date for that hasn’t been set, stay tuned.
