In case you are wondering Wye Oak is a band (a trio, to be exact) and they have named themselves after the state tree of Maryland. Wye Oak is the type of band that will make the kind of music they enjoy making rather than becoming a pop punk band because it is trendy now. Their sound can best be described as folk with a little goth thrown in for good measure. Each of the tracks on this CD is dense, full of layers and will leave your head spinning – in a good way. While you might find it overwhelming and messy when you first give it a listen, the album will surely win you over after multiple listens.
