Wye Oak just announced spring tour dates with Shearwater in support of their 2009 release, The Knot! Jenn & Andy will also be in Austin for the SXSW festival.
Spin Magazine described The Knot in their "Best Albums You May Have Missed" roundup, "Singer/guitarist Jenn Wasner's hypnotic songwriting has obvious Americana roots, but on the duo's sophomore full-length, her dreamy vocals artfully join ragged riffs to drummer/keyboardist Andy Stack's layers of thunderstorm drums and surging keyboard drones."
Preview and purchase The Knot on CD and digital download in the Merge store.
Also, listen and watch their live performance from the studios of Oregon Public Broadcasting!
