100% The Skinny It’s no good overloading your sound to the point of incomprehension, and Wye Oak get the message – the result is a clean mix that’s shot through with subtleties and tricks to discover.
90% Drowned in Sound After all, attempting to predict where Wye Oak might go from one album to the next is, by this point, either brave or stupid, depending on how charitable you’re feeling.
90% Soundblab The gift and the curse of being Jenn Wasner has never been made so clear as it is on Wye Oak’s latest single, “Lifer.” I don’t mean that Wasner is some tortured soul or that she’s in need, or want, of pity—far from it.
80% The Line of Best Fit Wye Oak’s fifth album, The Louder I Call, the Faster it Runs, repositions a band who are not only capable of turning indie rock into something greater than the sum of its parts, but something infinitely more valuable.
80% Music OMH Fifth album The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs doesn't have the dramatic sense of change of its predecessor, but it is a fascinating album that may even ultimately prove to have more to offer.
80% The Firenote Up next is the title track; its theme of a desperate need for order builds into a harmonic crescendo that induces goosebumps.
79% Backseat Mafia I’d heard their album The Knot right around the same time as I’d heard Phantogram’s Eyelid Movies.
78% Paste Magazine The Baltimore duo traded guitars for keyboards on its fourth album, Shriek, in 2014, and the result was mostly just boring songs that never caught fire.

75% Earbuddy With 2014’s Shriek, there would have been little surprise if the band hung up its instruments and called it a day.
75% Under the Radar Magazine Then there's Wye Oak, active for over a decade, who manage to bring life to Donald Rumsfeld's known unknown fable.
