Bleeding Rainbow: Show Preview

Once upon a time this band was called Reading Rainbow. The Cosby-sweater deadpan of the name, plus the fact that the first album was called Mystical Participation, was pretty much all you needed to know about its brand of amiably…

Forget Pedigree: Wild Flag Is a Great New Rock Band

The concept of a "supergroup"— wherein performers with cool and/or exciting pedigrees find themselves in something resembling a "band" — dies hard. Imagine your favorite musicians playing together! Frequently, expectations exceed results — a collection of individuals does not necessarily…

Wild Flag's Self-Titled Debut: A First Listen

I don't know why I've been dreading this Wild Flag album exactly. Sleater-Kinney is one of my three favorite bands (the other two are Sonic Youth and the Dismemberment Plan, in case you're wondering), and as such I should…

Sleater-Kinney

Next stop Woodstock Rockfest 2000, right grrrls? Hardly. If the widespread hubbub over last year's The Hot Rock left many wondering if the Portland-Olympia trio would soon outgrow its indie britches, this 13-song political opus will set a few minds…

Love Sick

Today, straight-white-male punk "counterculture" is sold over the counter; phony rebel angst dominates glossy magazines and MTV. But packaging pseudo-feminist and apolitical-homo rock is a troublesome new development. When female writers rush to whiny Alanis Morissette's defense and refuse to…
