Baltimore’s Wye Oak received high praise for their 2011 album Civilian, but even so, the duo is forging a new path with its follow-up.
Shriek, which is due out April 29, will contain no guitar, only a keyboard and bass guitar to accompany the percussion. Still, Wye Oak’s dreamy sound seems to remain intact, as evidenced by their recent string of performances at SXSW.
One of their featured sets came at a KUTX event, where their played six songs from the record.
