Album Review: Wild Flag - Wild Flag

One of the great joys of listening to music is the discovery of a new band to love. Almost equally joyful is rediscovering a band you loved long ago. Unsurprisingly, when one considers Wild Flag’s supergroup (hateful term) credentials, this self-titled debut offers both of these delights. Wild Flag is made up of ex-Helium guitarist Mary Timony, Rebecca Cole on keyboards plus Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss, two-thirds of the consistently fantastic Sleater-Kinney. Fans who mourned S-K’s failure to emerge from 2005’s thrilling swan-song ‘The Woods’ will rush to ‘Wild Flag’, and most will conclude that Meat Loaf was wrong: two out of three is bloody marvellous.
