The great Portland trio Sleater-Kinney are barely reunited but they've already released a new album, had two killer performances on TV, and will soon embark on a world tour.

Their latest TV appearance was on Conan last night, and the trio plus "touring member" Kate Harkin ripped through a cut off their killer new album No Cities To Love. The band has notably never seen the need for a bass guitar, and Harkin was a part of the triple-guitar assault for "Surface Envy," one of the highlights of the new record.

Sleater-Kinney will return back to Los Angeles on May 1 for a concert at the Hollywood Palladium.
