A.V. Undercover

Wye Oak covers The Kinks

Baltimore duo enlists the singer of Shearwater for their cover.

About This Episode

Wye Oak--Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack--asked us so politely if they could bring a friend along to help them cover "Strangers" by The Kinks, and who could refuse when that friend was Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg? The two bands had been touring together, and Wye Oak were working the song out on stage every night. It only made sense that Meiburg would step in to give it some extra oomph. Wye Oak's latest is an EP called My Neighbor / My Creator; it's available digitally now and will be out on CD on June 8.
