Today's song in heavy rotation is "I Guess We're Done," by The Wrens.

A link to the MP3 on the record company's site can be found here (click the "Hear MP3" button next to Abbott 1135). My goal is to get you all so hooked that you want to hand these guys lots of money.

This song is a lovely little slice of all the reasons I love The Wrens. It wanders around for a few seconds finding its bearings, and flares into this absolutely gorgeous, chimey tune with mouth-watering harmonies that wouldn't be out of place as the last slow dance at prom. It detours through dissonance, of course, with swooping guitars like jets landing, because these boys are nothing if not tricksy, but there is an undeniable swoony teen-idol quality happening here.

Note that I am not employed by the band. However, should they wish to compensate me for the plugging, I have a sliding scale worked out that runs from "please send me a copy of the Secaucus liner notes" all the way up to "please send me your bassist." :)
