Onstage, singer and guitarist Corin Tucker can wail like a banshee. Her trio from Olympia, Wash., Sleater-Kinney, inspired a generation of young women with its riot-grrl politics and incendiary live shows. The band went on hiatus in 2006. Tucker married filmmaker Lance Bangs of “Jackass” and they’ve been raising two children. Her solid new album of melodic rockers, “Kill My Blues” (Kill Rock Stars), is recorded by the Corin Tucker Band featuring members of Unwound and Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks. While doing the dishes at home in Portland, Ore., Tucker says the idea behind the album is “finding what you love to do and doing it for the short time you’re here.” The 39-year-old’s dynamic voice continues to lead the way, even as the group branches out musically. “We’ve clicked as a band and it’s fun,” she says. “There’s disco, ’80s stuff, a late-’79 thing happening on some songs. We have a fitness goal to attend to. … Bring your disco shoes.” The Corin Tucker Band performs with Fire Bison at Strange Matter on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m. $10-$12.
