Wild Flag is the project of indie rock luminaries Carrie Brownstein, Janet Weiss, Rebecca Cole, and Mary Timony. Brownstein and Weiss are best known as two-thirds of Sleater-Kinney, Cole as the drummer for the Minders, and Timony for Helium and her solo work, but these women have played together in different combinations (including the Spells and the Shadow Mortons) over the years. The women began playing together as what would become Wild Flag in May 2010, but didn’t announce they were a band until that September. The group rounded out the year with songwriting, recording, and touring. By April 2011, Wild Flag joined with engineer Chris Woodhouse to record their self-titled debut album, and its release followed on Merge that September. ~ Heather Phares
