On October 21st, Sub Pop will release ‘Start Together,‘ a 3,000-copy limited edition deluxe vinyl box set featuring remastered editions of Sleater-Kinney’s seven studio albums spanning 1995 to 2005. The set will include all seven LPs pressed on colored vinyl and is accompanied by a 44-page hardcover book featuring never-before-seen photos of the band, as well as a limited edition print. (The remastered albums will be released individually on CD and black vinyl on the same day.) All are available digitally today, September 2nd.
Greg Calbi (Bruce Springsteen, John Lennon, Talking Heads) at Sterling Sound has remastered these albums from the original analog tapes. “For such ferocious music, it was actually a very delicate process,” says Calbi. “I found, in dealing with one of the earlier albums, that my signal path and compression, including my Burl B2 convertor, gave me a more resonant, deeper sound on the guitars than the originals. Because the band rarely, if ever, used bass, I felt that this added to the aggressiveness and power of the band overall. I believe this treatment added a subtle, yet important, dimension to the band, and I explored each of the other albums with the same intention. Above all, their music, from inception, stands the test of time for the cleverness and emotional impact they brought to their genre.”
