The Wrens: new album or no?
A lot of hate towards Pitchfork is based on their way of making up “news.” I’m not sure if I agree, but they might just have a point. For instance, the headline today reads this: “Wrens Prep EP, New LP, Tour”
Yet, the article goes like this:
Pitchfork: How much new material do you have written for the next record?
Charles Bissell: [laughs] Ummm...none!
Oh, Pitchfork, don’t play with my hopes like that.
Wrens played last night at Maxwell’s, but there was no way that I was going to go to Jersey alone.
Good news: they play CMJ on 9/15 at the Mercury Lounge for the Absolutely Kosher Showcase.
Bad news: same night as the Arcade Fire. (Except the Arcade Fire might get over with early enough to see both).
