More Info

Originally released March 2011, Wye Oak’s third album celebrates 10 years in 2021. Civilian is the band’s most widely recognized album, and the band’s highest seller. Civilian was produced by John Congleton (St Vincent, Shearwater). Wye Oak is Andy Stack (of Lambchop, Joyero, El Vy) and Jenn Wasner (of Bon Iver, Flock of Dimes). They started as two friends recording demos together in Maryland. Their basement project has since evolved to include a shape-shifting catalog and more than a decade of tours across America and Europe. Jon Pareles of the NEW YORK TIMES described their evolution: “Wye Oak segued thoughtful roots-tinged rock into richly overwhelming textural excursions.” // Quotes - “Wasner’s satin vocals lift, Stack couples a key-driven pulse with splashes of delay and crash cymbal, and what we’re left with is fireworks of a dozen colors. They have our attention from beginning to end.” PITCHFORK // “Their music ambushes you, burning not just barns but whole plantations, taut with latent ferocity and brooding bitterness. “ TINY MIX TAPES
