Watch Carrie Brownstein review Big Sean, John Mayer, and Conor Oberst

This segment originally aired March 7, 2017, on VICE News Tonight on HBO.

For her last week on High Standards Music Corner, Carrie Brownstein, founding member of the legendary punk band Sleater-Kinney, imagines Jane Fonda as Conor Oberst’s “perfect 10.”

“.. in her current incarnation, which would be really cool,” Brownstein said.

In addition to “A Little Uncanny, ” by Oberst, Brownstein comments on:

  • “Halfway Off the Balcony,” by Big Sean.
  • “Windy City,” by Alison Krauss.
  • “Moving on and Getting Over,” by John Mayer.

Sleater-Kinney is an all-woman punk rock band formed in Olympia, Washington, in the mid-’90s. After going on an eight-year hiatus in 2006, the band made a much-celebrated comeback in 2014 and have since released one studio album, “No Cities to Love.”
