The debut album from Wild Flag, the Portland, Oregon and Washington, DC-based quartet consisting of Carrie Brownstein (guitar / vocals), Mary Timony (guitar / vocals), Rebecca Cole (keys / vocals) and Janet Weiss (drums / vocals). The members of Wild Flag have played in numerous and notable bands including Sleater-Kinney, Helium, Quasi, The Minders and Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks.
The album was recorded in April 2011 with engineer Chris Woodhouse at the Hangar. All tracks were recorded live except for the vocals. What is immediately apparent is the incredible energy of this band, their palpable joy at playing in a room together, and the pure inventive delight in the songwriting.
For fans of Sleater-Kinney, Helium, Quasi, Sonic Youth, EMA.
