The highly anticipated self-titled debut album from Wild Flag, the 4-piece Portland, OR- and Washington, DC-based rock group including Carrie Brownstein, Mary Timony, Rebecca Cole and Janet Weiss, is in stores today! Featuring members of Sleater-Kinney, Quasi, Helium, the Minders and Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks to name just a few, Wild Flag premiered with a tour of small west coast rock clubs in the fall of 2010.
To celebrate the release of Wild Flag, we’re giving away a trip for two to New York City! Enter the contest at the Merge Facebook page!
Gail O'Hara interviewed the entire band for Salon.com. Read it HERE.
And Rolling Stone reviews the album, saying "There are no wasted moments here – these are lifers who know exactly what they're doing."
Pitchfork has just premiered the Tom Scharpling-directed video for "Romance." Watch it at Pitchfork, or on Vimeo below.
Order the album on CD or LP in the Merge store, or buy it from your favorite retail outlet today!
