L7

L7 is an all-female band very much in the early Sub Pop mold (for whom they recorded early in their career), playing grunge/punk/metal. Though they maintain a loyal following, they seem to have peaked popularity-wise around the time of Bricks Are Heavy. They've been largely dormant in the 2000's but announced a reformation in 2014.

Recent album: Scatter The Rats, released on May 3, 2019.
