Sleater-Kinney was an acclaimed, American rock band that formed in Olympia, Washington in 1994. The band’s core lineup consisted of Corin Tucker (vocals and guitar), Carrie Brownstein (guitar and vocals), and Janet Weiss (drums). Sleater-Kinney were known for their feminist, left-leaning politics, and were an integral part of the riot grrrl and indie rock scenes in the Pacific Northwest. 

One Beat is the sixth studio album from Sleater-Kinney, originally released on August 20, 2002 by Kill Rock Stars. It was produced by John Goodmanson and recorded between March and April 2002 at Jackpot! Studio in Portland, Oregon. The album peaked at number 107 in the United States on the Billboard 200 and entered the Billboard Top Independent Albums at number five.

 ”[Sleater-Kinney’s] sharpest statement yet” [#12 / Albums of the Year 2002] - Caryn Ganz, SPIN

“Years at the top haven’t dulled their willingness to take risks, and that’s just what they do, spectacularly, on One Beat”. [9.1/10] Brendan Reid, Pitchfork

The album has been freshly remastered by Greg Calbi for this release. This reissue coincides with Sub Pop’s October 21st, 2014 release of remastered versions of Sleater-Kinney’s six other albums, as well as a limited-edition, deluxe vinyl box set featuring all seven albums. 

The digital versions of these reissues come out via Sub Pop on September 2nd, 2014.
