Artsy Afrobeat-Inflected Tunesmithing and a City Winery Show from Jenn Wasner

Source: New York Music Daily

Jenn Wasner is an anomaly in the indie rock world: a fluent, imaginative guitarist who uses just about every sound available to her and writes smart, pensive, lyrical songs. She’s bringing her band Wye Oak to a rare Manhattan gig tomorrow night, Oct 6 at City Winery. If you can get to Manhattan, you can also get home afterward since the show is early – 8 PM – and you won’t have to worry about the train leaving you at some random outpost in the remote fringes of Bushwick. And you can get in for twenty bucks at the door.

Elegant, Serpentine Chamber Pop with the String Orchestra of Brooklyn

Source: New York Music Daily

It’s hard to imagine that the String Orchestra of Brooklyn is ten years old this year. From the looks of some of the group’s members this past evening at le Poisson Rouge, if they’d been around since day one, they would have been in grade school then. This time out, the irrepressible ensemble backed a series of soloists straddling the worlds of indie classical and rock in a program that was more verdantly fresh and vivid than it was awash in the kind of lushly enveloping, dreamy sonics that strings orchestras are typically known for. A celebration of singles rather ...

Wye Oak, the indie-rock duo of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack, have gone through a number of permutations over the years. The group’s first three records each featured Wasner on guitar and were impeccable experiments that deftly combined both quieter folk elements and screeching rock. Everything was anchored by Wasner’s commanding vocals and Stack’s imposing drumming.

On the group’s 2014 record Shriek, things changed. Wasner ditched her guitar in favor of a bass, and Stack began relying heavily on synthesizers. While still a successful record, the shift rendered Wye Oak nearly unrecognizable.

This week, the duo covered ...
