I am nothing without pretend
I know my thoughts
Can’t live with them

One of the greatest songs of 2011 was Wye Oak‘s Civillain.

Together vocalist Jenn Wasner and multi-instrumentalist Andy Stack of Wye Oak create such sheer intensity and surprise in the craftsmanship of their lyrics to the actual music.

Engineer John Congleton known for his brilliance in producing works for Modest Mouse, Shearwater, and St. Vincent shared his magic on Wye Oak’s third album Civillian, allowing for the band to enjoy the collaboration process of making a beautiful and full sounding album.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
