Wye Oak 

When: Fri., July 18, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $15-$17
Baltimore duo Wye Oak couldn't have gone in a more opposite sonic direction from their past work than on Shriek, released in April. Their fourth full-length album, Shriek finds Jenn Wasner abandoning guitar and picking up the bass, and Andy Stack playing a much more significant role on keys and synths, taking Wye Oak's sound from what could previously be described as folk rock to something more along the lines of synth-pop. The new stuff is impressive and fresh, and shows that whether Wye Oak are creating rolling guitar lines—such as on their beautiful 2011 album, Civilian—or weaving together layers of synths and beats, they're masters of their craft. And amid all the drastic changes, Wasner's voice is still spellbinding and ethereal, and Wye Oak's songwriting is as personal, emotional and fascinating as ever. Pattern Is Movement is also on the bill. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
