Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack are once again making music as Wye Oak. That's not easy when they're also playing in Bon Iver, Lambchop, Sylvan Esso and their own solo projects 'Flock of Dimes' and 'Joyero.'

There are three new singles to listen to as well.

The duo has expanded their band for a tour that includes a stop tonight at Baldwin Auditorium in Durham. You can hear more of their music at WUNCMusic.org, on the WUNC app and at 91.5 HD2.

Songs We Love is a series and a podcast that looks at the stories behind some of the songs we're playing on our new music discovery stream, WUNC Music.

This time, Eric Hodge chats with Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner about the title track from their latest record, 'The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs.'

She says the song has different meanings for different people, and that duality fueled her creative process.

Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack have created and released their fifth album as Wye Oak. The band formed in Baltimore about 10 years ago. Now, the two are working in different geological corners with Wasner in Durham and Stack in Marfa, Texas.

The name of the record is The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs. It's being hailed by many critics and fans as their finest yet.
