Wild Flag

Them Crooked Vultures may have been the heart-stopping so-called super-group of 2010, but that was all about the cock and the rock, so it’s refreshing that Wild Flag is the next fusion of formidable talents on the horizon. Comprised of former Sleater-Kinney guitarist-vocalist Carrie Brownstein, S-K’s leaden-limbed drummer Janet Weiss, and the Minder’s Rebecca Cole made headlines and generated feverish anticipation as soon as they announced their partnership and signing with Merge Records this fall. However thrilling as those ingredients may be, it’s arguable that Helium’s groundbreaking guitarist and silver-throated singer, Mary Timony, is Wild Flag’s true secret weapon.
