Wye Oak: Spiral

Wye Oak are not a band who bother about trends. Last year when most other bands seemed preoccupied with neatly identifying themselves as dream pop, 90s revival or ‘chillwave’, this Baltimore duo released their sophomore album “Civilian” that sounded like equal parts Yo La Tengo, Low and Cat Power at her most country tinged. It was always possible their follow up could go anywhere, they are a band who managed to pull off covers of both The Kinks and Danzig, but I don’t think anyone expected this next track from them. It’s slightly Peaking Lights, a little bit Peter Gabriel and it builds into quite the stomper. It was recorded specifically for the American T.V channel Adult Swim and is available to download for free from their website.
