Wye Oak @ BVSXSW 3/15/2014
Wye Oak have released a second song from their soon-to-be-released album, Shriek. "Glory" shows off the duo's new danceable direction, but still retains that grandeur they're known for. You can stream it below and look for the album on April 29 via Merge.
Jenn and Andy were in Austin, TX for SXSW which just wrapped up. The last of their shows was at the BrooklynVegan Saturday day party where they played along side Merge labelmates Ex Hex, The Hold Steady, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and more. Jenn Wasner definitely took a guitarist's approach to bass which is the at the root of Wye Oak's new direction. She played keyboards (and a little guitar) too. Pictures from their day party set are in this post.
Wye Oak will launch their North American tour next month which includes an NYC stop on May 7 at Webster Hall (tickets). More pics from their BV day party set below...
