I also cut my teeth on S-K gigs however..

we don't need a rehash of S-K because this group does just fine as a retool of the Spells

besides, Corin's solo project is also a very good band, so why ruin two good things in exchange for potentially one?

Also, is anyone else extremely let down with the production on this album? I mean, I am so grateful for the massive collection of bootlegs posted on this thread because the album simply DOESN'T capture or duplicate in any way the real sound of wild flag, but the stage show is marvelously refreshing.

The only decently recorded track on the entire album is "Something Came Over Me" which is in fact simply sublime.

That being said, Wild Flag doesn't need Corin, what they need is to bring back John Goodmanson,

 


because the production on the s/t album is realistically shit.

From Pitchfork's Best of 2011 Guest Lists:

Quote:
 


Wild Flag's Carrie Brownstein


Top Things

01. Eleanor Friedberger: Last Summer: Eleanor has one of the coolest voices in music; it's both insouciant and savvy. She's a sophisticated storyteller, seeming to toss off tales of heartbreak-- tales of the city--like she was merely a passerby. But there is no sense of detachment in these songs, Friedberger is undeniably at the core.

02. Beginners by Mike Mills: I really related to this movie, and not just because my dog has been talking to me for years. Beginners is an elegant tale about the inelegant, confounding and often gut-wrenching nature of transitions.

03. St. Vincent, live in concert: The best metal show of the year.

04. Quitting Facebook: I'd say that this felt liberating except that I'm sitting here wondering-- as one wishes they could do at their own funeral-- how many "likes" and comments I got for leaving. Plus, now I'll never know what some friend of mine from high school had for breakfast today. Oh wait, I'll check Twitter.

05. The Future by Miranda July: One of the most powerful and elegiac meditations I've seen on the fine line between connection and disconnection. It's the out-of-focus of nearness, the clarity of distance, and the devastating realization of that disparity. I really don't get the argument that July's work is twee. So what if a cat narrates this film? Cats can claw your eyes out. This shit is hardcore.

06. Dancing to Flo Rida and Drake in a tiny airstream trailer in Birmingham, Alabama: Dance parties should always be: spontaneous, sweaty, seductive.

07. Plushy convention near Wesleyan University in Connecticut: My band was supposed to stay at a hotel that was hosting a Plushy Convention, but our tour manager promptly checked us out after realizing we were the only non-Plushy guests. (Note to tour manager: don't you want us to have any fun?) In other words, this is the "best of" that never was. I still dream of a man dressed as a squirrel serenading me with Soundgarden songs transposed on a lute, and of throwing back whiskey shots with three zebras and a Snoopy. And that's before the lights go out. 2012 for sure.

08. Philip Larkin poems: I get a little homesick on tour, and though we all want it to, sometimes listening to "The Load Out" by Jackson Browne just won't suffice as a summary of life on the road. Thus, I turn to this Larkin line: "Home is so sad. It stays as it was left/ Shaped to the comfort of the last to go/ As if to win them back."

09. Childish Gambino: Camp: The best way to describe my relationship with this album is enamored. It has an energy, a searching, a sincerity and a freshness that I want to climb into over and over again.

10. Homemade Kombucha: I had a dogsitter who left three vats of the stuff in my bathroom cabinet. As if in a hippie-themed horror film, I followed a strange scent upstairs until I discovered the source of the stench. There are two ways to describe what I saw: 1) a pancake taking a bath. 2) A stillbirth. Either way, the pancake baby is still there because I don't own a Hazmat suit. Why is this on my best of 2011 list? Because if I can get rid of this stuff before January 31st, it will make my year.

I WORSHIP AT THE ALTAR OF WILD FLAG

Wild Flag deserves the attention, s-k got a lot of magazine spin but never really broke, even after The Woods, still they were really only popular among music writers, but I was a fan since 1996 and it was always kind of underground. It took a decade for s-k to get onnetwork TV, and its good that Wild Flag can build on this wave..

Words are meaningless in the 21st Century. But yeah, I liked the performance.

I need some help, Vimeo has a 500.00MB limit and the file I have is supossed to be 500mb but must be ever so slightly over. The video is .ts format and none of the software I have will edit it. I can find free trials for programs that will do this but they leave a watermark on the video... any ideas?

halfeatencake: Thank you so much for the beautiful polaroids!

I'm curious about the new songs (There's a recording of the show in Paris also with new songs on the set-list).

that is ok, its never too late to find great new music, I discover gems from the 1970s all the time!


I must admit though, I've been anticipating this project since Carrie posted the previously unreleased B-sides for the Spells Age of Backwards EP of her and Mary which I have also posted eleswhere somewhere on the forum. It seemed obvious to me then that something was in the works, and then I went to the first show I could see in LA, and waited almost a year for that album living on bootlegs. PS, the bootlegs are much better!
