They have released five full-length albums of their own, the most recent release being White Flags of Winter Chimneys.
They currently score the music for the NBC series' Heroes and Mercy, and Showtime’s Nurse Jackie. Recently having score CDs released for Heroes (music comprised entirely of Wendy & Lisa's full-length compositions for each of the show's character) and coming soon the original score for NURSE JACKIE released by Lionsgate Music and available March 2010.
White Flags was released completely independently and embracing the new music and social media model to spread the word. During interviews, Wendy & Lisa have commented on how they felt pressured by record executives to put out music more reminiscent of Prince’s music and cite their first two albums as examples. Similar to their more recent work (Eroica and Girl Bros), all music, lyrics, and instruments on White Flags of Winter Chimneys are written and performed by Wendy & Lisa.
