Wye Oak w/ Braids

Wye Oak’s new Shriek is, to say the least, a transitional album. Until now the Baltimore-born indie-rock band has specialized in spine-chilling dream-pop, laced with the cutting guitar riffs of singer Jenn Wasner. That guitar was the defining quality of 2011’s masterful Civilian, the album that introduced Wye Oak to a bigger audience than ever, but for Shriek Wasner abandoned the guitar completely, letting her bass and drummer Andy Stack’s thick synthesizers carry her songs. It’s an adjustment, to be sure, but Wasner’s evocative, mysterious songwriting remains as strong as ever.
