Recommended Listening: The Wrens.

Well, duh. The Wrens are like a rad sweater you forget about for a few years, and then notice again when you're putting away your shorts and tshirts and digging out your corduroys again. It's a little scratchy and has a moth hole in the armpit, but it smells like a good time you had in 2003. I wish they'd put out a new sweater. I think I'm torturing the metaphor a little.

Wrens arguable head dude Charles Bissel has been hanging out with Okkervil River (and Will Sheff, in particular), and they've contributed to an R.E.M. covers album, but otherwise they've been quiet for a long time. Like, almost since I graduated from college. They contributed a track for an obscure Australian comp coming out soon (stereogum covered this awhile back, thanks KC for the heads up). "In Turkish Waters" is a typical Wrens track, in that it doesn't club you over the head with its awesomeness, but quietly becomes one of those songs you look for on your ipod.

Also, if you ever lend that sweater to a Wren, get it dry cleaned.
