Sleater-Kinney carry on with new album and new purpose

Andrew Stafford, Sydney Morning Herald, the, 15 August 2019

THE CENTRE Won't Hold, the title of Sleater-Kinney's ninth album, is taken from W.B. Yeats' 1919 poem The Second Coming, the words of which have been repeatedly invoked in the Trump era: "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold … The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity."
