Kathleen Hanna is a pioneering artist, central to the development and evolution of the riot grrrl movement: her early bands Bikini Kill and Le Tigre were powerful agents for change, combining feminism, politics and punk styles.
'Hit Reset' is the second album in the recent revival of Kathleen's recording project The Julie Ruin. It finds a perfect balance between the danceable synth sounds of Le Tigre and the incendiary riffs and raw punk of Bikini Kill. Traces of'60s garage and '90s rock are also found in the mix, with a moving ballad to close the record. Kathleen Hanna's lyrics are as poignant and pointed as ever, covering a wide range of territory including personal experiences and family relationships.
