ABOUT THE RECORD:
"Disciplined in its disaffection." -- The New York Times
"Maintains [a] fun-loving sex-positive approach with tracks like 'Cool Slut' while also acknowledging the complexities of life." -- The New Yorker
"This is feminism as fact; as default...It's the evolution of how young women impart vitally important information." -- NPR
"They're funny, and slightly goofy, and gently vulgar, and they play with an appealingly loose, relaxed confidence." -- Pitchfork
"Chastity Belt are making a strong case for being the most important band to emerge from Washington state’s Emerald City since Nirvana."
-- UK Press Association
“[Chastity Belt] are the coolest people I have ever met.”
-- Courtney Barnett
