What people are saying about "The Knot" :
"[The Knot], the upcoming record by Wye Oak (which combines Yo La Tengo drone with My Morning Jacket riffs and Spinanes-like intimacy.)" ~ Noel Murray, The Onion AV Club "Best Records of 2009 So Far"
"Hint: not only is it devastatingly pretty, it bests just about everything about If Children, which is, yes, possible." ~ Baltimore City Paper
"While the blurry folk-noise fusion of Wye Oak's first album had an offhand charm, Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack's follow-up is tougher and more engrossing." ~ Spin Magazine, 8/10
What people are saying about "If Children" :
"Listening to their debut album If Children is like taking a master class in indie rock (with a large section on Yo La Tengo and the male-female duo dynamic). Unlike school, though, it's actually quite a pleasant experience." ~ All Music Guide
"Our multi-instrumentalist hosts sing in warming, serene tones while exploring themes of political and environmental unrest, yet this is a strangely comforting debut, its crisp, dry, distinct anodyne sounds welcome whether cathedral big or button small." ~ Mojo Magazine, 4 stars
