 Listen to Girls Like Us, a song from Kathleen Hannas band The Julie Ruin

In 2010, Kathleen Hanna expanded her solo project The Julie Ruin to a full-band effort, teaming with her former Bikini Kill bandmate Kathi Wilcox, Kiki and Herb member Kenny Mellman, Carmine Covelli, and Sara Landeau. Until today, their activities have been limited to a performance at a 2010 Kathleen Hanna tribute concert in Brooklyn.

But now, as Pitchfork points out, Hanna and co. have released their first song together as part of a series inspired by author T. Cooper’s new book Real Man Adventures. The Julie Ruin’s contribution, “Girls Like Us” (Vag Vocal Version), features lead vocals sung by Vaginal Creme Davis; download it below (via The Rumpus).

The full collection of songs inspired by the book will be available on Cooper’s February book tour, as well as at the East Village, New York City barbershop Ben’s Barbers at 217 Avenue A between 13th & 14th.

As for The Julie Ruin, they’re hard at work on a full-length studio album, which includes a collaboration with James Murphy.
