New Album: Wye Oak – Shriek (2014/04/28) [Full Album Stream] / New Video for ‘The Tower’ [Free Download]

:: Shriek’s become such a great record. Strongly recommended!

 

Shriek is the fourth studio LP by Baltimore-natives Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack bka Wye Oak. The album was released in the UK/Europe yesterday (April 28, 2014) via City Slang. North American release follows today (April 29) via Merge Records. The album is available as download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP (standard black or limited edition coloured orange, both incl. download code). You can buy digitally via iTunes or order your physical copy of Shriek directly from Wye Oak’s Store or the label (City Slang / Merge Records).

Shriek is streaming in its entirety above (via the City Slang Soundcloud). The set of ten ten tracks is engineered, produced and mixed by Wye Oak together with Nicolas Vernhes who also mixed the album. The three recorded Shriek at the Rare Book Room in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The songs are entirely written and composed by Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack who had landed on opposite sides of the US after two years of nearly constant touring with their successful 2011 album Civilian. Embracing their physical distance, the songs were developed by passing ideas back and forth and are amrked by a new source of inspiration: Jenn Wasner playing bass.

The Tower is the first single taken from Shriek. The track is available for free download via Wye Oak’s Soundcloud and it now also comes with a lovely music video to enjoy. It’s produced and directed by Ben O’Brien, check out below.
