If the names and faces of Aeon Station seem familiar despite only releasing their debut record last year, it’s because they’re far from new to the scene. Nearly 20 years after the Wrens released their last record The Meadowlands, Aeon Station was formed by Kevin Whelan in the hopes of finally releasing the songs he’d been writing for the New Jersey indie rock band but would never see the light of day after years of creative clashes and business disputes with his former bandmate and co-songwriter unless he created a new band.

Whelan and his band, primarily made up of other members of the Wrens, stopped by KEXP in April to play a few songs off their distortion-fueled debut Observatory, which came out on Sub Pop in 2021.

Recorded 04/29/2022.
