With still a little over a month to go 'till the albums official release, on July 21st, Wye Oak is now streaming their upcoming disc, The Knot over on the Merge Records website here. The sneak peek is up for a limited time so check it out while you can. The new sophomore LP shows a slightly more restrained sound from the two piece, who are known for their beautifully layered indie rock, with less feedback this time around and more simple melodies.
