Wye Oak creates big shoegaze songs using a more minimalist route, but somehow manages to create the largest sound you've ever heard.
KDHX DJs Chris Bay and Nick Acquisto discuss some of their favorite musical performances and discoveries from the first two days of the annual South by Southwest music conference and festival.
Never content to repeat themselves, the duo of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack, aka Wye Oak, venture into fully-synth (and cello and guitar) powered, fully-danceable dream pop on "The Tower," a track from their forthcoming album "Shriek."
Wye Oak opened the show last night at the Pageant with an indie rock sound best described as less is more. Performing with only two members, drummer/keyboardist Andy Stack and vocalist/guitarist Jenn Wasner managed to make up for a lack of band members with intense musicianship and a string of dreamy hooks.
