Jenn Wasner is one cool lady. And where Wye Oak goes, I shall follow.
ETA: This song for Adult Swim is wicked. Diggin’ it big-time.
This sounds unreal! A slight departure from their usual folk/rock grandeur, ‘Spiral’ cruises on a spare, loping pulse that’s more in line Wasner’s electronic-based solo project Flock of Dimes, while a focus on clean, expansive guitar recalls the more bewitching elements of Fleetwood Mac. Jenn’s dotted vocals also play more with rhythm than usual, doling her perennially rich and emotive melodies through terse puncture points. (Just to note: There’s some kind of horrifically loud compression static during the outro, which sounds intentional, but can leave a bit of a sonic scar if you’re as unprepared for it as I was.) The track will eventually be available to download over at Adult Swim starting Monday.
