Future Islands – “For Sure” (Feat. Jenn Wasner)

Future Islands' last album, The Far Field, came out a little over three years ago. In the interim, the band never strayed too far from view; last year, for example, Samuel T. Herring made his official full-length debut under his rap moniker Hemlock Ernst, and just a couple weeks ago bassist … More »

Save Stereogum: An ‘00s Covers Comp

I started Stereogum in 2002 with a LiveJournal and a dream (to get free CDs). Seriously though, I started this site to discuss new music with strangers on the internet.

Stream: Wye Oak, ‘Fear of Heights’

As they have often over the course of six albums, Wye Oak take a simple notion and turn it into something transcendent on their new single “Fear of Heights.” The song is the latest from the prolific duo of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack since their 2018 album “The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs,” and like the rapturous “Fortune,” released in November, it imagines the tendrils of human emotions (trepidation, in this case) wafting like smoke through the canyons of the mind. It is at once vast and i...

Over the last year, Wye Oak have given us a couple standalone tracks, as Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack pursued other projects following the tour behind 2018's The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs. First there was "Evergreen," an Adult Swim single that felt like a lost gem from Wye … More »

Joyero – “Salt Mine”

The two members of Wye Oak remain extremely productive in between album cycles. Most indie music fans are aware of Jenn Wasner's solo work as Flock Of Dimes, and perhaps you remember her great Dungeonesse side project or her production work for artists like Madeline Kenney.

The 10 Best Wye Oak Songs

We often perceive indie rock of the early 21st century through two defining lenses: the era of New York's early '00s retro-revival and the rise of Brooklyn and mainstream indie that supplanted it by the end of that decade. There were, of course, all sorts of other scenes in other places -- in orbit or … More »
