Videos: Wild Flag Debut Original Songs, Covers Live

Though we’ll have to wait until at least next spring/summer to hear studio recordings from Wild Flag, the new superquartet consisting of Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss, the Minders’ Rebecca Cole, and former Helium singer-guitarist Mary Timony, a sneak peek of their new material and undeniable live chemistry arrived this week via footage from the first 3 dates on their inaugural tour.

Watch videos of original tunes alongside covers of the Standells’ “Dirty Water” and the Rolling Stones’ “Beast of Burden” below, roughly ordered from best to worst sound quality (we’ll update the collection when new clips become available):
