Wye Oak's Tween: 'Beautiful And Lush'

Jon Norton

Occasional we ask GLT's Jon Norton to drop by local record stores to hear what's playing while customers browse the bins.  It's a feature we call "What's on Your Turntable?" Norton recently stopped in at Waiting Room Records in Uptown Normal, where store owner Jared Alcorn gave him a CD preview of "Tween," the new release by the Baltimore, MD based pop/rock duo Wye Oak.  

Alcorn said the album was appropriately named, as the tracks were recorded mainly between the duo's 2011 release "Civilian" and the 2014 album "Shriek."   "These aren't B sides. These are out-takes" said Alcorn.
