If the name Fen Wik Ren is new to you that’s no surprise. I was made aware of this new project/moniker of Ryan Barrett (Pica Beats) today via the magic of social networking. I’m not sure what the story is – whether Pica Beats is defunct, or if this is just a new project with a new name – but whatever it is, it sounds good. The new material seems to be more or less in line with the songs Ryan recorded as “R. Barrett” for the Songs about Books project last year. And in fact, this song got its start as one of those songs. Please enjoy “Poison Pen,” inspired in part by Michel Houellebecq’s The Possibility of an Island.
