The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs-the triumphant fifth album by Wye Oak-begins
with an explosion. For a few seconds, piano, drums, and a playful keyboard loop
gather momentum; then, all at once, they burst, enormous bass flooding the elastic
beat. "Suffering, I remember suffering," sings Jenn Wasner, her voice stretched coolly
across the tizzy. "Feeling heat and then the lack of it, but not so much what the
difference is." The moment declares the second coming of Wye Oak, a band that
spent more than a decade preparing to write this record-their most gripping and
powerful set of songs to date, built with melodies, movement, and emotions that
transcend even the best of their catalogue. The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs arrives at a time of immense doubt, when our personal problems are infinitely compounded by a world that seems in existential peril. But these dozen songs answer the challenge by radiating self-reflection and resolve, wielding hooks and musical intricacy as a shield against the madness of the moment.
