Around these parts, we love Neil Young. He may be the greatest holdover from the 60s that hasn't been spoiled by mindless pop tunes and/or broad commercial success. The Wye Oak are a fine band that build on Neil's legacy and craft jams that could be heard in your local pub or hipster cafe. They construct that bridge between unlikely classes, and it is for the good of all people. That's why they should be given a prime spot in your record collection.
Chances are it is snowy and cold in your neck of the woods during this time of year. For those of you who dream of Hawaiian BBQs and sun drenched reverb, Two Wounded Birds should get you through this cold-snap. Holiday Records should get your endearing love and respect for releasing this digital 7-inch.
