***WYE OAK wrote what became Civilian between December 2009 and July 2010. After recording and mixing previous albums themselves, Wye Oak brought in mixing engineer JOHN CONGLETON (St. Vincent, Shearwater), who played a pivotal role in the sound of Civilian. “JC definitely pushed us into some exciting and sometimes scary new territory,” multi-instrumentalist ANDY STACK says. “It was the most that JENN and I had ever relinquished control of our music to someone else, but it gave us a chance to step back and see the big picture, whereas on previous recordings we got embroiled in the technical details.” Civilian is imbued with dense shoegaze guitars, nearly melodic rhythms, and impeccable splashes of electronic color. The songs beguile with fascinating chords and melodies, Jenn’s voice and riveting lyrics, mesmerizing rhythms, and an intoxicating aural landscape. Just as good writing has meaning between the lines, Civilian has meaning between the sounds: the combinations of harmonies, timbres, and words summon vivid and ineffable associations just beyond reach. No Exports to Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand. (STREET DATE - 3/08/2011)
