Wye Oak

Thanks to our good friends over at Merge Records for sending us this gorgeous song by Baltimore's Wye Oak. Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner are the multi-instrumentalists that make up Wye Oak. After spending a lot of time in various bands the two came together as their last band fell apart.

Their track "Warning" reminds me particularly of the best part of Veruca Salt's vocals; particularly Nina Gordon. Their other song "Obituary", which you can check out on their Myspace page, reminds me a little bit of The La's. Either way, "Warning" is a great little power-pop track.
