Every Day Like The Last: Collected Singles 2019-2023

    On June 23, 2023, Merge Records will release Every Day Like the Last: Collected Singles 2019–2023, a physical home for three new tracks and previously released music from Wye Oak, charting the past four years of the band’s lives.

    Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack’s musical partnership bloomed in the uncertainty of that period, whenever they felt that Wye Oak had something to say. They shifted to quickly writing, recording, and releasing digital EPs and singles. To Stack, there is a thread running through what is seemingly chaos: “Finding cheer in the doom of the world.”

    Every Day Like the Last does just that, reminding the listener of the new heights Wye Oak have reached since 2018’s The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs, while gazing into the unknown of what’s ahead. The title of this collection acknowledges that duality, posing it like a question: “every day like the day before it” or “every day like the last day on Earth?”

    “Both meanings apply,” Wasner says. There are no easy answers.

    If Children

      The duo of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack present an exuberant and assured debut seamlessly combining elements of noise, folk, and shoegaze to create a style all their own. Originally self-released in 2007 under the moniker Monarch, Wye Oak’s debut If Children was given a proper introduction to the world the following spring on Merge Records. Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack take their minimalist setup to maximalist ends, pairing gentle campfire folk with bombastic hazy shoegaze, sometimes within the same song.
