Reviews

Sleater-Kinney's Dig Me Out by Jovana Babovic not only dives into the album, but it also dives into the culture surrounding women in music. While the book takes you through the album, it focuses on what it meant for the individual band members, the tour surrounding the release, and how the band was treated on the road. Babovic displays the toughness and the DIY attitude of Sleater-Kinney perfectly through her writing... I can't recommend this book enough. * HiFi Noise *
[In this volume] Babovic makes the case that S-K are that alternative; a band that should be held in as high esteem as Bowie, The Beatles and the rest of rock's predominantly male superstars ... Though it's strongly grounded with analytic arguments and sociological theories, it's also hugely passionate; written with a similar excitement and frustration as the record itself. * Record Collector *
I loved Dig Me Out. It's about feminism and gender as much as it is about the three musicians and this one particular album. For SK fans, it's a must, but I also recommend it highly to people interested in media and sexism. * Lower East Side Librarian *
