Wild Flag - "Oh Yeah"

I'm not sure how "Oh Yeah" missed the cut for Wild Flag's debut and ended up as a bonus track, but it's recently moved into favorite song territory for me thanks to Mary Timony's hypnotic ear-catching vocals and Carrie Brownstein's bubbling and rhythmic lead guitar work. Though the song lacks a prominent bass, "Oh Yeah" reminds me a bit of a Kim Deal-sung Pixies track: fuzzy, sharply melodic, and relentlessly uptempo pop music that leaves you hitting the play button over and over again.

Buy Wild Flag on vinyl from Merge Records.

  1. Yes, Oh Yeah is a gem -- and I question why it got bumped to bonus track status. To me, it sounds like something Flying Nun might have released in the 90s, but I like the Kim Deal analogy too :)

  2. I might have an extra ticket to the Athens, GA show on 10/22. Hit me up on google plus if anyone's interested...
