Rob Scheffield writes a review of a recent Wild Flag show at Rolling Stone. It took me back to the show I saw in Portland last November. Given the news lately, I needed the reminder of a brilliant show.
Many things in dissertation land turned from being idle projects and projections of future goals to actual projects with very real deadlines. Large, looming deadlines with vocabularies stunning for the variety of four letter words they’re yelling at me. I realize that in the long run, this is all a good thing and all part of the process. Nevertheless, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. So, I figure I’d turn, as I usually do, to Sleater-Kinney for help. Given the recent album, I actually turned to Corin Tucker, but the three will always go together for me given how often I turn to their albums. (That said, I can’t wait for Wild Flag to release their 7″).
Anyway, here’s a song that’s been on my mind today and a review of 1000 Years from NPR.
