If you’re an indie rock-inclined human being of a certain age, there’s a good chance you’ve been checking for updates on the Wild Flag album the same way 14-year-old girls are checking for updates on the Hunger Games movie. Here’s why: Wild Flag’s members include Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss, which means two thirds of Sleater-Kinney are back together! It also includes Mary Timony, which means all of the Spells are back together! (Did you ever hear The Age Of Backwards, the 1999 EP from the Brownstein/Timony side project? You should! It’s really great!)

Anyway, Wild Flag’s self-titled debut album is out 9/13 on Merge, and it’s streaming at NPR now. It is dope, and you should hear it.
