A Top 25 Special - "13 Months in 6 Minutes," The Wrens
"13 Months in 6 Minutes," from an Honorable Mention album, "The Meadowlands."
Until I read the lyrics posted on the YouTube page (and I'm not sure they're entirely correct, but they're close enough), I really didn't care what they were - the song is that hypnotic. The snippets of words that you catch make it obvious that it's a breakup song, but what makes it special is the way the band slowly builds the intensity - the way one verse runs into the next, all while the instrumentation ups the ante.
Great, great song.
