Performer Notes
  • Following a highly anticipated mini tour and 7", Wild Flag -- comprised of former Sleater-Kinney players Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss along with Helium singer/guitarist Mary Timony and the Minders keyboardist Rebecca Cole -- make their full-length debut. The foursome collaborated with engineer Chris Woodhouse (Team Sleep, Thee Oh Sees) to serve up a mix of riot grrl, noise pop and new wave-inflected indie rock.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.68) - Ranked #9 in Rolling Stone's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "The guitars spark, snarl and tangle, while the girl-group la-la-la's cushion tougher sentiments."

Spin (p.78) - "Brownstein offers a wonderful ech of of Patti Smith....Timony sings with shades of Chrissie Hynde's elegant restraint..."

Spin (p.51) - Ranked #9 in Spin's 'The Top 40 Albums Of 2011' -- "[T]he resulting ten songs -- especially centerpiece freak-out 'Racehorse' -- are so giddy and breathless that easy nostalgia is their least intriguing quality."

Alternative Press (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[F]ull of bluesy, distorted guitars. The sprawling 'Glass Tambourine' matches ghostly multi-part harmonies with steamrolling classic-rock riffs and Weiss' colossal rhythms..."

Magnet (pp.51-52) - "Key to their sound is how seamlessly they mesh no-nonsense pop punch and no-net wizardry....WilD Flag sounds like liberation."

Magnet (p.44) - Ranked #3 in Magnet's '20 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "Wild Flag's got everything under control, so let its sonic rollercoaster pull you up and hurl you around the track until you can't stand up straight."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.93) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Carrie Brownstein's vocal is positively lascivious on 'Boom'....The skull-cracking drums of erstwhile Sleater-Kinney bandmate Janet Weiss lend a gutsy, urgent grunt to 'Romance'..."
