This is what a Wye Oak looks like 

Wye Oak's new record Civilian (Merge Records) has already been met with a heap ton of critical praise and will certainly be on a slew of best of 2011 lists. They're playing the Magic Stick Lounge this Friday April 8th - go see them! That way, when they're all huge famous Grammy winners and the common folk of the world are tweeting, "Who is Civilian and what is a Wye Oak?????? Taylor Swift was ROBBED!" you can roll your eyes and say, "I totally saw them back in the day..."
