This is not the Wye Oak album you had been expecting, but it is the one you wanted. Overflowing with cascading symbol crashes, epic fuzz waves, and just all together jaw dropping. It’s hard to not be awed at the jump in song writing mood creation and change in attitude. A beautiful fusion of feedback emotion, power, bits of bottled of sadness, and throw in some very smooth modern R&B bass lines. Imagine that friend (or acquaintance) you know and always liked, is nothing wrong, they’re nice, carefree at times, and all together a great person. They go away for a short time, and upon their return you discover a drastic difference. They are more focused, and have clearly found themselves, taking life more seriously, and appear to be reaching their full potential. That friend is Wye Oak’s Tween, a bit of a surprise as one of the strongest releases of 2016. www.wyeoakmusic.com
