Five For Free #15

Wye Oak - Holy Holy


First up is Baltimore duo Wye Oak who offer us this wonderful, pounding free track 'Holy Holy', one of the highlights from their fourth album 'Civilian' which was released earlier in the year. Wye Oak break from the mould of guitar, drums and vocals boy/girl duos we've seen so much of post White Stripes, incorporating a greater amount of instrumentation both live and in the studio. Well worth going to see.

Mint Julep - Aviary


While we're on the subject of boy/girl duos - the Portland husband and wife duo Mint Julep (named after a cocktail) are set to release a new album, 'Save Your Season', in November. The first track released from it is the gorgeous, dreamy, upbeat ambience of 'Aviary'. It will most certainly brighten things up as the nights draw in.
