Best of 2011: Wye Oak

I am nothing without pretend
I know my thoughts
Can’t live with them

One of the greatest songs of 2011 was Wye Oak‘s Civillain.

Together vocalist Jenn Wasner and multi-instrumentalist Andy Stack of Wye Oak create such sheer intensity and surprise in the craftsmanship of their lyrics to the actual music.

Engineer John Congleton known for his brilliance in producing works for Modest Mouse, Shearwater, and St. Vincent shared his magic on Wye Oak’s third album Civillian, allowing for the band to enjoy the collaboration process of making a beautiful and full sounding album.
