It's been five years since New Jersey's The Wrens released, yes I'm serious, one of the best records of all-time. Since the release of The Meadowlands, we've only heard snippets of what might be on the way. We've heard about a new record for about three years, yet nothing's surfaced. Charles Bissell has played a few solo gigs and most recently, has joined Okkervil River on tour. But still nothing from the beloved Wrens.
Until today. With no advance warning, up shows a new track. The first new song in about half a decade. And good lord is it a beauty. I will say no more: The Wrens "Sleep" (song four in the player).
