Trashcan Sinatras cover Wye Oak’s “Holy Holy”
About This Episode

The members of Trashcan Sinatras had not heard Wye Oak’s “Holy Holy” before getting our shrinking list of songs—they had never even heard of the band. That shouldn’t be too big a surprise considering they’re from pretty different eras, though I’d like to think—as a big fan of both bands—that they’ll end up loving each other. When the Scottish Sinatras took a listen to “Holy Holy”—from Wye Oak’s unstoppable 2011 album Civilian—they found it plenty intriguing, and gave it a little patina of Scottish sadness and chill wit. The Trashcans’ latest album is this year’s Wild Pendulum.
