Release the Dogs

Wye Oak’s Andy Stack comes through with a record of thoughtful, widescreen rock as Joyero. Release The Dogs (Release The Hounds, surely?) harks back to that period in the late-2000’s when the likes of The Antlers, The National and Grizzly Bear were turning out LPs full of tender and emotional indie tuneage. It’s a welcome return to a sound we wish we heard more of these days. ‘Dogs’ is the hit.

Wye Oak
The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs

Wye Oak are a duo made up of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack. They formed in Baltimore but after two albums moved apart to North Carolina and Texas, respectively. Their long distance working relationship has now produced three further albums. The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs was made as they wrote apart and recorded together. It sees the pair introducing more electronic elements into their music following on from their earlier guitar-led work. Available on limited edition beige/blue split coloured vinyl, black vinyl LP and CD on Merge.

Wye Oak

Wye Oak’s fourth studio album Shriek was written and recorded after drummer/keyboardist and one half of the duo Andy Stack relocated to the west coast, leaving Jenn Wasner back in Baltimore. This took the band in a new direction as they found themselves writing separately for the first time. Shriek was produced in the hipster enclave of Greenpoint, Brooklyn by the duo with the help of Nicolas Vernhes. Shriek is available on vinyl LP with download code and CD.
