Song of the Day: Wye Oak - Civilian
Posted at 12:25pm, 12/14/2010
Wye Oak is Jenn Wasner & Andy Stack and Civilian will be their third album to date. Civilian will be released early next year on Merge, who had this to say about the upcoming album: "Civilian is a kind of 21st-century folk music, imbued with dense shoegaze guitars, nearly melodic rhythms, and impeccable splashes of electronic color. Without leaning on conventional structure, the songs beguile with fascinating chords and melodies, Jenn’s voice and riveting lyrics, mesmerizing rhythms, and an intoxicating aural landscape. Just as good writing has meaning between the lines, Civilian has meaning between the sounds: the combinations of harmonies, timbres, and words summon vivid and ineffable associations just beyond reach."

Civilian will be released March 8, 2011 on Merge Records.
