Editorial Reviews

In between their acclaimed The Knot and shortly before the release of their critically heralded third album Civilian, Wye Oak released My Neighbor / My Creator, a vibrant EP that brims with melody and creative detours. This EP marked the first time Jenn and Andy collaborated with outside producers. Originally released on limited-edition CD in 2010 and reprinted with alternate cover art in 2011, the limited-edition My Neighbor / My Creator 12-inch vinyl EP, cut at 45 RPM, is released here with the original red-tinted cover art and include a digital download.

Format: MP3 Music
After releasing their second album, The Knot, just last year, this Baltimore duo returns with a five song EP that adds new dimension to their guitar-and-drums indie-pop. The quiet-loud contrasts, downbeat mood and buried vocals are replaced by a more outgoing tone on the opening "My Neighbor," a romping waltz that sounds like a modern-rock version of Fragile-era Yes. The quiet/loud is reversed with the hard-charging verse and sedate chorus of "Emmylou," driven by manic guitars and harmonica that give way in an instant to a cool moment of closing flute; it feels like a television station signing off with the national anthem cutting to a test pattern . Jenn Wasner's vocals are audible but the lyrics still remain elusive; "I Hope You Die" has moments of aggression in its tone, but also an emotive air of contemplation, so it's anyone's guess if the title is hateful, ironic or something else. A closing remix of "That I Do" breaks the original's mood of measured confrontation with a rap section that feels intrusive. The added layers give these productions a thickness one wouldn't usually expect from a duo, but there are sparse moments to remind you this is a duet rather than an ensemble - a conversation amid the din of a manufactured crowd.

If you like Indy/pop/garage rock, this is a must. "I Hope You Die" is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, and the remix of "That I Do" is also very powerful.
