Not a year after releasing sophomore full-length The Knot, Wye Oak return with a quick EP that handily bests it. My Neighbor/My Creator marks the first time Baltimore's Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack have shared production reins with somebody else, all five recordings here having been touched by Chris and Mickey Freeland, two brothers who've also got experience with the Baltimore hip-hop set. The latter can be heard here on the EP's final track, a reimagining of The Knot's "That I Do" that includes a curveball that will likely knock those familiar with Wye Oak's dream folk on their asses. Amid now cavernous low-end, sandwiched between synths, sirens, and Wasner's Sarah McLachlan-esque vocals (not corny at all!), Freeland raps. It's a brave experiment, but the verse sounds out of place, one ill-advised misstep that's buffered by the four pieces of new material Wasner and Stack also recorded.
