Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner form the ultimate complementary duo: While Wasner sings throaty melodies over dreamy guitar strums, Stack plays punching bass lines on the keys with one hand while smacking drums with the other. Since 2006, the two have been making richly atmospheric dream pop with folk-inspired guitar lines and the most pleasantly eerie melodies imaginable. Their newest album, Civilian, marks their fullest and most mature work yet, coming together as a wash of noise, husky vocals, and digestible angst.
