Wye Oak visited the famous round room at the Onion AV Club Undercover headquarters in Chicago to cover "Mother" by Danzig.
Complete with a sleeveless black hoodie and a "Wolfs Blood" tattoo, Jenn offers a spooky take on former Misfits' frontman Glenn Danzig's vocal stylings. Jenn & Andy were joined by Callers' Don "Donzig" Godwin on tenor horn, too.
Watch Wye Oak cover "Mother" by Danzig.
Wye Oak are the only band to be asked back for a second AV Undercover visit, because as the AV Club says "they're awesome." Watch their cover of The Kinks' "Strangers" from last year's series, too.
Civilian is available on CD, LP and digital download in the Merge store. Wye Oak just wrapped their first US tour in support of Civilian, and can next be seen channeling Dinosaur Jr at the "Our Band Could be Your Life" 10th anniversary show at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC on May 22 and the Sasquatch Festival on May 28 before heading to Europe.
