Wye Oak – No Place

I really love Wye Oak, and posting about No Place – which is taken from their latest EP, No Horizon – also gives me a valid reason to talk about one of my favourite songs of the last few years, It Was Not Natural: if you haven’t heard this, go and do it right now. It’s one of the most passionate delivered, inspiring records I’ve ever heard and makes me so happy every time I hear it.

Anyway, back to the present: No Horizon was recorded with the Brooklyn Youth Chorus contributing to every track, which lends the entire EP a spectral, quietly disorienting quality especially when paired with the rolling polyrhythms on No Place.
