Wild Flag, Wild Flag, Merge

October 21, 2011

060_ELM1011_Playlist-2The estrogen is bubbling over on the debut from this alt/punk supergroup teaming Sleater-Kinney singer/guitarist Carrie Brownstein and drummer Janet Weiss, Helium singer/guitarist Mary Timony and Minders keyboard player Rebecca Cole. The artful racket served up by these DIY-rooted gunslingers (captured live off the floor by engineer Chris Woodhouse) leaves ample room for the Brownstein- Timony guitar fireworks. Highlights include the careening, harmony-laced opener “Romance” and “Endless Talk,” which splits the difference between the Patti Smith Group and the Shangri-Las.
