Flock of Dimes (the solo project of Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner) has released a new album, Head of Roses, today via Sub Pop. Now that the album’s out you can stream the whole thing below. Also, yesterday we posted our review of Head of Roses (can read that here) and today we posted our The End interview with Wasner about endings and death (read that here).
In an except from his review, our writer Mark Moody had this to say about Head of Roses: “Breaking up may be hard to do, but growing up is even harder. Wasner’s command of grace for herself and others ultimately becomes a source of soothing as Head of Roses unfolds. Layers push aside to reveal a core scented with forgiveness and healing.”
Previously shared songs from Head of Roses are “Two” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), “Price of Blue” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week), “Hard Way” (which was also recently featured as one of our Songs of the Week), and “One More Hour.”
Head of Roses was produced by Nick Sanborn (Sylvan Esso) and Wasner.
Wasner’s most recent project as Flock of Dimes was the EP Like So Much Desire, which came out last year on Sub Pop. Her last album as Flock of Dimes, her debut full-length under that name, was If You See Me, Say Yes, which came out in 2016 via Partisan.
