Wye Oak – Civilian

March 31, 2011

Wye Oak’s first two albums were each a collection of well-crafted, sparsely arranged songs.  Memorable melodies set to dynamic chord progressions with just enough rock to keep it moving.  Their recent EP suggested a tonal shift in the works and they’re latest album is just that.

Far from a reinvention, Wye Oak’s new album, Civilian, features a more complete execution of their already well honed songcraft.  Lush instrumentation and tempo changes are used to great effect, drawing the listener into a surprisingly multidimensional album.
