When she’s not leading Wye Oak, Jenn Wasner lends her titanic voice to Flock Of Dimes, her own solo project. Next month, she’ll release a single, “Curtain” b/w “Apparition.” Talking about it, she says, “These two songs function as a pair of opposites — the first documents the thoughtless, obsessed joy of new love, whereas the second attempts to catch sight of the ghosts it leaves behind in the wake of its absence.” She recorded the tracks with Baltimore rap producer Mickey Free. Listen to “Curtain” below.
“Curtain” b/w “Apparition” is out 9/25 on Merge. Shout out to Jenn, Mickey, and everyone else who has ever worked at the Golden West Cafe in Hampden. That place is the best.
