Indie duo Wye Oak will celebrate their newly released album Shriek tonight with fans at Union Transfer. It’s the fifth record for the Maryland natives who just released a new video for one of its tracks, “Glory” where vocalist Jenn Wasner’s falsetto shimmers in contrast to the creepy visual.

Canadian singer-songwriter Doug Paisley returns to Philadelphia for a headlining slot at Boot & Saddle on May 5th. Following up last year’s Golden Embers EP, Paisley released his Strong Feelings full-length in January to widespread acclaim due to its understated and heartbreaking songs. Next up for the Toronto native is a Record Store Day release in the form of a 7″ single that takes “Growing Souls” off of the LP and backs it with previously unreleased track “Lies Lead to Lies.” The delicately balanced b-side duet pulls the listener in with hushed vocals and intimate guitar, positioned in a way that makes it seem like the song is being performed right next to you and for only you. Take a listen below and get more info about Doug Paisley’s 21+ show here.
