Girls, St. Vincent, Wild Flag head new releases Tuesday

There’s a slew of new albums out today, including notable offerings by Girls, St. Vincent and Wild Flag, a group made up of two Sleater-Kinney members and Helium’s Mary Timony. Wild Flag’s self-titled debut really rocks. Girls offers an impressive and more sonic┬ásecond album, Father, Son, Holy Ghost, while Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) also stretches on her third full release, Strange Mercy.

A pair of semi-classic indie albums get reissued on vinyl today as well. The Meat Puppets’ Up on the Sun and Superchunk’s Foolish both get the vinyl treatment.

That Meat Puppets album, in particular, is really a standout. The Kirkwood brothers made a huge leap between the band’s debut in 1982 and the much more accessible Meat Puppets II. Up on the Sun further defined the sound of these Southwest punk legends. Up on the Sun is highly recommended.
