[Year: 2016 / Country: USA / Label: Partisan]
In this computer generated augmented reality, we still dream
It’s not all that unexpected, and certainly not a problem, that Flock of Dimes sounds quite similar to Wye Oak. The debut album from the electronic-leaning side project of Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner, If You See me, Say Yes will most heavily appeal to those who love the dreamier side of her primary band moreso than those who are drawn in by her fantastic guitar playing. On If You See me, Say Yes, Wasner’s vocals are a central focus, with her voice floating through a dreamy haze similar to that of Victoria Legrand of Beach House. Melodic yet meditative, her songs contain a friendly warmth even in the context of electronics.
