Guest(s): Jenn Wasner & Mickey Freeland
Jenn and Andy Stack formed the indie rock outfit Wye Oak in 2006. They quickly garnered respect in Baltimore and beyond. The AV Club deemed their album “Civilian” the best album of 2011. And in support of that album they embarked on a world tour for over a year, playing more than 200 shows in 2011 alone.
The grind of a world tour seems to have left Jenn burnt out. She blames her bowels. But, while she’s home, she’s still writing jammy jams. Jenn’s new poppy project, Dungeonesse, will be out May 14 via Secretly Canadian.
Mickey, a damn fantastic musician in his own right, also contributes to Jenn’s “Flock of Dimes” project. Mickey’s an excellent rapper and beat maker. Check out Mickey’s awesome solo album, “The Last of the Tight Wiggers,” which is available for 5 bones at mickeyfreemusic.com!
We also discuss the XFL (RIP), Monute Bol invented the phrase “My bad,” ButterMusic Girls, Beyonce, being depressed, quippin hard, loving puns, Jenn doesn’t want to talk about her therapist, and so much more!
