In other music news, Wild Flag is fucking fantastic.
I was never a fan of Sleater-Kinney; despite their agreeable politics and Carrie Brownstein being an amazing woman, their music just never grabbed me. No matter how much you agree with someone, when it comes to liking music you just can’t fake the funk.
Wild Flag on the other hand – their music is both playful and cerebral, complex yet approachable, immersive yet never irksome.
And that guitar hook on “Boom.” Now, that’s something. Whoever plays that – damn, girl has some skills.
