Wye Oak’s 2011 album Civilian was a major inflection point for the band. Supporting the record brought the Baltimore duo of Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner across oceans, onto “The Tonight Show,” and into the arsenal of Hollywood music supervisors. By the end of the year, after wringing every possible variation out of their setlist, they were spent. “I feel like our band is going to change very, very drastically from here on out in order to remain vital to us,” Wasner noted in an interview with the Village Voice. And so they did, situationally and stylistically. Stack moved to the artistic enclave of Marfa, Texas, and then on to Portland, Oregon. At the same time, Wasner set her guitar aside as she worked on her throwback chirp-pop project Dungeonesse; the results were sufficiently freeing that Wye Oak’s 2014 follow-up, Shriek, eschewed the six-string almost entirely.
