When Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner released "Civilian", it marked both the ascension and death of Wye Oak, or at least a version of it.

Now, a decade later, "Civilian" + "Cut All the Wires: 2009-2011" delves back into that pivotal record and adds a lost album of unreleased tracks and demos to its universe. Ten years after its release, "Civilian" remains a raw, sinewy punch of a record - bleak and intense and lonely and self-assured all at once.

The album unravels with the sort of self-questioning and uncertainty that come with youth, and its specific confidence in unflinchingly probing all of those emotions, feeling them to their deepest extent even when it's tearing you apart at the seams.

"Cut All the Wires: 2009-2011", a 12-song collection of rare and unreleased tracks and demos culled from the Wye Oak archives, is an extension of the bruised and aching "Civilian". The collection adds another layer of separation, a lost album unexpectedly discovered and the feeling of meeting oneself all over again.
