One of my favorite bands. Jenn Wasner has such a sweet voice and Andy Stack provides complementary rhythms and melodies. An overall soothing sound that works well for relaxing or being out and about.
Favorite track: It Was Not Natural.

Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack of Wye Oak have spent most of their lives in Baltimore, MD. But after two years of constant

Love this record. "L'inconnue," "Dive," and "Lose Your Smile" are three of my favorite Beach House songs. Victoria's voice is always beautiful, but she literally sounds like what I'd imagine an angel to sound like on L'inconnue. Also "Lose Your Smile" has that same stoned alt country/dreamy vibe that later day Luna has. Definitely a diverse and inspiring record. I really hope they tour again soon so I can see them for the first time Jesse Mullen
