All Music Guide:

15 years after co-founding Sleater-Kinney, riot grrrl Corin Tucker found herself playing a benefit show in Portland, OR, where she sprinkled several new songs into her solo set. After the show, Tucker -- who’d been on hiatus with Sleater-Kinney since 2006 -- decided to turn those new songs into an album.

The resulting album, 1,000 Years, was released in 2010.
