Wye Oak

Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack of Wye Oak have spent most of their lives in Baltimore, Maryland. But after two years of constant touring with Civilian, their highly lauded 2011 album, they landed on opposite sides of the country with an unforeseeable future ahead. Despite this newfound uncertainty, the two bandmates embraced their physical distance, passing ideas back and forth, allowing new work to evolve in their respective solitudes. Shriek is Wye Oak’s fourth full-length and the culmination of their intent to express the emotional and intuitive self by acting out animalistic exclamations through cathartic release. It is their most personal and confident declaration yet.

“[Shriek] is by turns dream, expansive and, ultimately, triumphant.” –Rolling Stone

“The tautness of Wasner’s writing had little to do with her instrument of choice and everything with the woman behind the strings: This is nervy, charged music, buzzing like a brain in heat.” –Pitchfork

“Brainy, buzzy…high minded grooves that benefit from Wasner’s heavenly vocals.” -SPIN
