This week's download comes from the band Wye Oak. They have a new album entitled Shriek, which is due April 29. You have seven days to download the song "The Tower." Don't forget that Wye Oak will be playing Turner Hall Ballroom on May 14.
Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack have been playing music together and apart in Baltimore for
most of their lives. On stage, they perform with raw energy and sophistication, creating a surprising
amount of noise for two people. Their music can be classified as 21st-century folk music, imbued with
dense shoegaze guitars, nearly melodic rhythms, and impeccable splashes of electronic color.
