  • With their homecoming show, a more synthy Wye Oak joins the continuum of Baltimore's experimental scene

    With their homecoming show, a more synthy Wye Oak joins the continuum of Baltimore's experimental scene
    The guitar is dead and Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack of Wye Oak know it. On Saturday, in the Charles Street Parking Lot show next to the Metro Gallery, the beloved duo who recently released their fourth album, "Shriek," a synthy seachange that makes an end-run around the loud-quiet-loud shtick of their past three records, appeared much more interested in opening minds than playing national local rock star. 'Civilian,' best known for appearing in an episode of "The Walking Dead" and raising their profile significantly, was couched in the final cluster of songs like it was no big deal, and they half-apologized before playing their excellent, Internet-celebrated cover of Kate Bush's 'Running Up That Hill.' And then there were the opening acts, both pulled from Baltimore's avant-garde: Wume, a drums and drone-synth duo named after a piece of nerdy Krautrock trivia, and legendary electronic duo Matmos. There is also something or other to parse about all three acts being duos here — what exactly I am not sure, other than hey that's pretty cool and another tell that perhaps, the proper rock group template is on its way out.
