Wye Oak is putting out a rarities 7″ which consist of two songs. They collaborated with Adult Swim to produce these two songs in which “Wave Is Not The Water” appears on a compilation album called Luxe. Here is the album in which you can stream or below, in which the Wye Oak song is track 2. No pre-order here, so you can get this soon! Enjoy!

Something about the songs:

Jenn and Andy of Wye Oak told us a little about each track: “Spiral” popped up around 2012, at a time before we began work on Shriek. We were just starting to experiment with synthetic and more pop-oriented sounds, and also got assistance on the marimba from our friend Rod Hamilton, with whom Jenn was sharing a loft at the Copycat in Baltimore at the time. 

“Wave Is Not the Water” was created in the early months of 2017, without either of us ever setting foot in the same space. Andy was touring as the drummer for Lambchop and volleying the recording back and forth with Jenn via email, as seems to be the current state of things.

The Details

Wye Oak is back with “Spiral” b/w “Wave Is Not the Water,” a limited-edition rarities 7-inch on red vinyl. Both songs were originally released in partnership with Adult Swim.
