New ex-Wrens single Old Death2023-11-17 by Trif O Liam | 17 Comments
|The Wrens' Charles Bissell new project Car Colors has released its first song 'Old Death' today. It comes with the B-sides, an alt-take of album track 'And It's All Guns and Arrows' and 'I'll Bear'. Of 'Old Death', Bissell has said in a statement: |
“Old Death” is, like the rest of the album, sort of a sequel to the meadowlands before it and like that one, is about time, how one chooses to spend it, what those choices cost. That means for me, the song (and album) is also about making the album itself. It's about death, maybe obviously, but it's really about my dumb life. And because so much of that life, over the last decade especially, lined up weirdly well to the Odyssey, it's all sorta hung on Homer's narrative framework (unlike say, “Ulysses”, in my case it’s all very non-fictional/auto-biographical).
However like Ulysses”, every song is written in a stream-of-consciousness mode. Or for me, really more of a stream-of-memories: that time this happened, that other-time-this-reminds-me-of happened etc. Hence, the parenthetical dating throughout the lyrics as those memories pop in&out.
So basically like, unlike, like and then unlike Ulysses” - ha."

Just keeps growing. Incredible stuff!
Can’t wait to hear the album in about 7 years time.
i really gotta jam the meadowlands one of these days dont i
yes or else
this is like all his not-the-best songs from the Meadowlands fused together into a self-aware slow meltdown epic and i have mixed feelings and not enough feelings about it
car colors is the best he could come up with?
Also this is fucking amazing holy shit
lmao right?! (to both points, honestly)
not bad but not really a fan of this
took me a while to appreciate the meadowlands in it's entirety hopefully this new record is more promising than what the other ex-wrens guy put out a while back.
based off this it's pretty clear who was putting out the more creative ideas I love that record for.
while indisputably not as ambitious as this, i dig like everything on the aeon station more than this
pretty evident that neither side is complete without the other tho
he released 2 other songs as well
im just gonna take the best songs from this and the best from aeon station and pretend it's the wrens last album
ive read that half of the songs from aeon station were specifically meant for wrens lp4 but queens is the only one im 100% sure about since a wrens version of that song was once teased
but also everyone except charlie is on aeon station so i feel like any of it would work for that concept lmao
Leaves is on the leaked Wrens album 4.5 demo that surfaced recently too so that one dates back to 2014 or earlier
btw the leak absolutely smokes this and Observatory to nobody's surprise
damn where do i get my hands on that
yes please provide a link
