Language Advisory: This is a live concert recording, and may not contain language suitable for all audiences.

A young Baltimore duo with a big sound, Wye Oak has already built up a formidable catalog of moody, achy, beautifully blustery rock songs about the futile pursuit of normalcy and contentment. Singer-guitarist Jenn Wasner lends the pair's songs an air of angst-swept mystery, while multi-instrumentalist Andy Stack essentially does the work of an entire backing band, playing drums and keyboards on stage simultaneously. Civilian, an excellent album from earlier this year, promises to finally facilitate Wye Oak's breakthrough into the big time.

Recorded live at The Gorge on Saturday, May 28, Wye Oak performs here as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
