DOWNLOAD: Take It In

Jenn Wasner of the Baltimore-based duo Wye Oak spins a beautifully bittersweet tale as she whispers, moans and floats through this song, surrounded by a clanging caucaphony of guitars and drums and the pulsing heartbeat of an incessant bassline. “We are both the same…..Unwell…”…since I seem to have the picked up a case of the Swine Flu, this just sort of hit home today! ‘The Knot’ drops on July 21st and is a stunning follow-up to their first album, If Children.
