A sprawling 19-track album presents many challenges - can The Wrens maintain quality from start to finish on Secaucus?

Author & Special Guests

On the penultimate episode of the first season of Dig Me Out, we tackle the 1996 album Secaucus by The Wrens. A sprawling 19-track album presents many challenges - can the band maintain quality from start to finish, while providing enough diversity to avoid getting repetitive? Neither of us were familiar with Secaucus, so how does it fair, and what does it mean when bands like Cursive, The Who, Guided By Voices, Spoon, The Living End, Men At Work and the Pixies all get referenced during the discussion of one album?

Does This album bring back some great vibes?
