About Civilian album. Album Civilian (2011). by Wye Oak. Label Merge Records. Andy Stack, Jenn Wasner.

There's something natural about CIVILIAN, Wye Oak's third full-length album. Every song sounds effortless, but none of them sound simple. Every song sounds meticulous, but none of them sound busy. To my ears, it took Wye Oak three albums to hit their full stride. The first two albums had incredible moments, but would get a little drifty in stretches. This release is involving throughout and consistently surprises the listener with interesting and unusual sounds brought into the mix. Their sound has continue to evolve and develop from album to album to achieve greater depth in their music.

Civilian (Wye Oak album) The . Civilian. Studio album by Wye Oak. Released.

Up until the release of 2011’s album Civilian, the indie rock duo of Wye Oak released two albums and one EP of solid, well-crafted indie rock. Built around the husky vocals and biting guitars of Jenn Wasner and the steady backbeat of Andy Stack, they trod upon familiar ground; writing mysterious and autumnal songs with a melancholy and intimate feel that had loud/quiet dynamics and a homemade sound. Not exactly innovative but delivered with enough passion to make the records keepers

Though they still hew closely to 90s indie rock, their label found a way of describing their sound best as "21st Century Folk. That's a big umbrella but it works because one very malleable influence imbues this particular set of songs more than any other: Neil Young
