Wheat Release New Album, Tour Dates

posted May 22, 2007

Wheat Release New Album, Tour DatesWith "Everyday I Said A Prayer For Kathy And Made A One Inch Square," Wheat are back amongst us in our world, right where they belong. What began 10 years ago as a brilliant art project in sound has now been restored to its beginnings, original luster restored. From the celestial shimmer of Closeness, which opens the new album, to the pastoral instrumental poem, Courting Ed Templeton, which closes it, "Everyday I Said A Prayer…" marks a splendid return to the incandescent form that yielded 1997's delicious Medeiros and 1999's indie-pop gem Hope & Adams.
