If I wanted to release a “screwed” cover of an Eagles song, I don’t have to ask anybody. If I have a bizarre idea that might weird people out or piss people off or not make sense, then I want to be able to share that with people and take that feedback. I’m fully willing to take responsiblitiy for these weird songs that I have. I just have to. It’s something that I feel compelled to share with people. That’s why I’m a songwriter. That’s why I’m a musician. I’m confused as to why that is, but it is.
Jenn Wasner, guitarist/singer for Wye Oak, talked to me about her new solo project, Flock of Dimes, Wye Oak’s future and falling back in love with Baltimore.
By the way, she really did do a screwed cover of the Eagles’ “I Can’t Tell You Why.” It’s the B-side to her new 7”, which I would recommend picking up over at Friends or when the Sharon Van Etten tour comes to your town. Orange vinyl; very #RARE.
