37.) Wild Flag – Wild Flag
Wild Flag, as many of you probably know, is fronted by Carrie Brownstien of Sleater-Kinney. That’s enough to warrant a listen for most people. And indeed, these four mid-30’s girls have put out a super-fun pure rock album with this self-titled debut. This is no-frills rock and roll, people. Pop-rock chord progressions meets a syrupy guitar tone meets classic punk drums. The vocals are wise but winking. If there was any single album this year that I’d want to play Rock Band/Guitar Hero to it’d be this one. The whole album sounds like the band is just having a lot of fun playing music, and that is an infectious feeling that carries over to the listening experience. Listen to album opener, “Romance.” I dare you to find a more fun rock song from this year. I dare you to not sing along to its chorus.
