Ex Sleater Kinney drummer Janet Weiss updates fans after major car accident

“I’m happily settling into my home routine and feeling positive.”

Former Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Weiss has updated fans about her health after she was involved in a serious car accident.

The drummer, who announced her departure from the seminal band back in July, previously revealed that she was was recovering after being involved in a car accident earlier this month. The crash has left Weiss with a broken leg and collar bone.

On Saturday (August 17), Weiss tweeted a photo of a stitched-up cut on her right leg and thanked fans for the support she’s received since last week’s accident.

“After 5 nights in the hospital, I’m happily settling into my home routine and feeling positive, basking in the overriding feelings of luck and gratitude and relief that [Quasi bandmate Drew Grow] and I survived the accident,” Weiss captioned the tweet.

Her doctors have since recommended 12 weeks of recovery time, which means that Quasi’s upcoming tour, originally due to start on October 7  in Seattle, is likely to be postponed.

Weiss, who had been a part of Sleater-Kinney for 24 years, announced her departure from the group less than a month before their new St Vincent-produced album ‘The Centre Won’t Hold‘ was set for release.

In a statement on Twitter at the time, Weiss said: “After intense deliberation and with heavy sadness, I have decided to leave Sleater-Kinney. The band is heading in a new direction and it is time for me to move on. I will never forget the heights we reached, or the magnificent times Corin, Carrie and I shared.”

“We were a force of nature. To the dearest SK fans – you’re the raddest fans in the universe and I love you. Experiencing the music together has been the honour of a lifetime.

“Thank you for sustaining me the past 24 years and for proving without a doubt that love and connection are what saves us.”

Oneohtrix Point Never to soundtrack ‘Uncut Gems’ thriller starring Adam Sandler

Another collaboration between Daniel Lopatin and the Safdie brothers

Oneohtrix Point Never will soundtrack the Safdie brothers’ new film Uncut Gems, a crime thriller starring Adam Sandler, Lakeith Stanfield, The Weeknd and others.

OPN – aka Daniel Lopatin – will work on the music for Uncut Gems, per Film Music Reporter. The movie will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, and be released December 13.

This is the second time the experimental electronic musician has worked with the Safdie brothers. Lopatin’s soundtrack for their 2017 film Good Time, which included the song ‘The Pure and the Damned’ featuring Iggy Pop, won the Soundtrack Award at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

Sandler leads the cast of Uncut Gems as a Howard Ratner, an ambitious jeweller who “must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win”, according to studio A24’s official description of the film.

Besides The Weeknd (who will be making his silver screen debut in the film), Josh and Benny Safdie have also cast former basketball star Kevin Garnett, Frozen star Idina Menzel, Judd Hirsch, Julia Fox, Lakeith Stanfield and more. The film is executive produced by Martin Scorsese.

Lopatin first composed for film in 2013, when he worked on the score for Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring with Brian Reitzell. He also scored Ariel Kleiman’s Partisan and Rick Alverson’s The Mountain. His last studio album was 2018’s ‘Age Of’.
