Mission Of Burma – What They Tell Me / Boom (Wild Flag Split 7 inch) – 7″
Mission of Burma's LP 'Unsound' is out now on Fire Records. The band played a free show at Prospect Park on August 3, 2012 with Wild Flag and Ted Leo as part of the Celebrate Brooklyn series. To mark this momentous event, Mission of Burma released a special, limited edition, tour only, split 7″ with Wild Flag featuring album tracks from both artists, “What They Tell Me” by Mission of Burma and Wild Flag's “Boom”.
Unsound is the Mission of Burma's sixth full-length album – their fourth since their improbable reunion in 2002 – and it has earned 4 **** from The Guardian and Mojo, and 8/10 scores from NME and Uncut. Reviews have noted the band “sound as electrifying, as curious, and as awake as they ever have,” (Mojo) and that the album is “a punk-derived mix of brains and muscle, as obsessed with angles and time-shifts as battle-cry choruses.” (Pitchfork, 7.7).
Wild Flag is a Portland, Oregon- and Washington, DC-based quartet consisting of Carrie Brownstein, Rebecca Cole, Mary Timony, and Janet Weiss. The members of Wild Flag have played in numerous and notable bands including Sleater-Kinney, Helium, Quasi, The Minders, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, and others. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2011 on Merge Records (US)/Wichita Recordings (Europe).
