Free Energy covers Sleater-Kinney

Attitude is everything.

About This Episode

Free Energy seemed to burst out of nowhere with 2010's fabulously catchy Stuck On Nothing, which was produced by LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy and his released on DFA, his label. The band's sound was an odd match for the label, since it favors glammy '70s rock moves to clicky electronics. This year's Love Sign features more—and even slicker—power-pop moves from the Philadelphia band. They do certainly manage to buff one of Sleater-Kinney's most straightforward rockers, "You're No Rock N' Roll Fun," to a shine in this rendition.
