The city has no real need to be nervous...

I have a real slammer to share with you this week.  A beguilingly ambitious and sophisticated indie rock platter from 1996 boasting intense, multi-tracked harmonies and arrangements so dense you'd swear at times you were listening to two albums simultaneously.  Incidentally, the title of which is the name of a city I recently drove through, but anyway....

Since you said "city" I'm assuming that you weren't in Maine driving through Lincolnville! Their CD doesn't quite fit the description but boy is it intense. A favorite of mine.

The Wrens FTW ! Love everything they've ever done, and excited for the newie.

Good description. Some (many) of these tracks really sound like two songs playing over each other. In fact if you had not alerted me, I probably would have thought there was some corruption in the downloading process. I can't imagine how one records songs like that. It's so contrary to how music is "supposed" to sound.

All this could make someone think it sounds like a mess, but it doesn't. It sounds like "normal" music but "distorted" in a unique way. Really fascinating.

Thanks.
