New Wye Oak

After watching the entire series of The Wire last year, I find it interesting that anyone coming out of Baltimore makes happy music.  Last year Baltimore duo Wye Oak wowed me with one of our 2008 faves "Warning" and this year looks to be no different.  Although their newest song "Take It In" isn't exactly what I would call "upbeat," it's pretty catchy.

Making quick work the duo is already back with a new album The Knot.  The first single "Take It In" meanders from buzzed out bluesy-ish rock in the hook to minimal guitar picking in the rest of the song.

Tour dates: 
5/04/09 -  Norman, OK @ Opolis
5/05/09 - Ft. Worth, TX @ Lola's Stockyards
5/06/09 - Austin, TX @ The Mohawk
