Jenn Wasner launched Flock of Dimes, as a solo project which formed in 2011 to explore the more atmospheric side of pop. Flock of Dimes allows Wasner to experience more experimental recording techniques and songwriting outside of the burgeoning success of her main musical outlet Wye Oak.  I’m a bit late to the party on this one, but it’s a terrific album and I’m glad I caught it before year’s end. It’s able to balance being incredibly catchy without compromising musical depth.

Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak)’s debut record as Flock of Dimes, ‘If You See Me, Say Yes,’ is three years in the making — from the initial recording in Baltimore (with Mickey and Chris Freeland), to the process of refining and tweaking (alone and with friends in Durham, Brooklyn, and beyond), to the mixing in Dallas (with John Congleton). It’s the first record where Wasner has done the bulk of the work — writing, playing, producing— by herself.
