In this week's slate of Rolling Stone reviews, Rob Sheffield raves about Wild Flag's debut album, which he says "tops anyone's wildest hopes" for the supergroup featuring members of Sleater-Kinney and Helium and punches "about fucking time buttons" for anyone into bad-ass guitar rock. Also, Will Hermes praises Strange Mercy, the "busily inventive" third album by St. Vincent, David Fricke gives a thumbs up to Primus' first new record in over a decade, and Jon Dolan digs the second album by the British duo Slow Club, which "bridges the twee whimsy of Belle and Sebastian and the garage-y primacy of early Yeah Yeah Yeahs."
