You might have seen tomes in the 33 1/3 series — those cute, pocket-size books that burst with information and rhapsodic essays about rock albums of the past. Many of the 33 1/3 editions focus on classic records that were overlooked by the reigning music-critic aristocracy at the time of their original release, and Jenn Pelly's The Raincoats brings much-needed attention to the British post-punk group's landmark self-titled 1979 album. Pitchfork writer Pelly adeptly traces the connections between The Raincoats' arty, playfully inventive and boldly feminist music and the male-dominated classic-rock music scene they were rebelling against, and also points out how their unpredictable songs still resonate today. Pelly engages in a conversation about the band with witty riot-grrl icon Allison Wolfe (Bratmobile, Ex-Stains).
