Has there ever been much excitement about a new Wilco album on ILM before? Unless we go ~m~e~t~a~ I don't see it happening for this one (unless maybe they cover "Wish You Were Here")

tyler - the RSD Floyd thing was the 1966/67 live thing on vinyl. I don't think Floyd has any control over those couple of recordings.

back on topic: I'll be excited if this sounds builds on the sound of Summer Teeth. If it sounds like anything they've made in the past decade I don't care.

this might be interesting, Nels-wise:

Tweedy is being modest. One new song, "Art of Almost," has an experimental feel, like 2009's "Bull Black Nova" and 2004's "Spiders (Kidsmoke)." It's a seven-minute, two-parter that starts as a free-form jam, punctuated with burbling synths, mellotrons, and tribal drums. It swells into a punk-ish coda, with virtuosic, fuzzed-out guitar shredding courtesy of Cline, the band's secret weapon. Tweedy says the inspiration for the track came from Neil Young. "It's a sort of atmospheric song you might hear on Tonight's the Night," he says. "I don't know what happened to that song, to be honest. It just sort of morphed over time into something that's a lot more interesting to us now."

That right there takes away what little interest I had.

pretty much works for me.

i've heard tweedy play a pretty nice version of "ripple"

tylerw, Sunday, 24 April 2011 03:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

There's a new song floating around with a lyric that sounds like Tweedy trying to bed a straight dude. "Open Up Your Mind" or some such. It's a good song, in that John Lennon-y kinda way Tweedy writes sometimes.

I haven't cared about Wilco in a long time (my wife is the resident Wilco fan in her house, though even she tuned out after Sky Blue Sky), but I think, to counter Tweedy's claim, there are some of us who really WANT To like a new Wilco album. I really hope this album is amazing. But if it isn't, my feeling won't be 'meh,' my feeling will be "thank God there's still a band of this caliber selling records and making rock and roll in 2011, even if I don't dig what they're doing right now."

Well said, Airport! That's the best response yet. I feel the same way, too, as I'm not into the jam band direction though I'm down with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

The Whole Love >>>>> Get Well Soon Everybody.

In fact, I was thinking about finding this thread and remarking on how Wilco is really good with the record titles.

idk, i think i like this song.

i was startling the first time i heard it; it doesn't sound like i expect wilco to sound. but you could also call it a refreshing change of direction. it's poppy and energetic, and i like the guitar squalls in the background (they could be a little noisy-ish, but they're set low enough in the mix to not induce a headache; i guess that's nels cline on guitar).

Daniel, Esq., Monday, 27 June 2011 12:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

The bass line kinda sounds like they ripped it off from The Fall when Brix was in the band. Not that that's a bad thing.

righteousmaelstrom, Monday, 27 June 2011 14:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

i like this. is the sound lo-fi, or is it just a crappppy mp3?

I hadn't seen Wilco live in five years and left pretty abruptly shortly after A Ghost Is Born - era. By far their greatest record and that tour was crackerjack with Nels in the band, etc. I went to the Wilco Fest this weekend despite all my cynicism, pessimism and general tendency to be "that guy in the basement going 'meh' " - Baby, I'm a believer. New songs were very good, much better than most of the material from the last two albums, which are largely skippable (there are exceptions). Their live show is tremendous, they really went all out for this thing.

i actually don't own that album, but it recently appeared on emusic (along with the newer, self-titled disc).

Daniel, Esq., Tuesday, 28 June 2011 01:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

reaction to Wilco (The Album) was quite divided, but I was definitely in the pro camp. harkens back to the first three records mostly.

did any other ilxors go to the festival thing? i think it would be nice to go eventually

markers, Tuesday, 28 June 2011 03:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

Overall the festival is super yuppie/white (SHOCKER) but extremely well run and a great time. It's inside a beautiful contemporary art museum, they truck in a great sound system/setup and it's very relaxed/mellow. Everyone is very affable and you make friends throughout the day. Highlights besides Wilco were Purling Hiss, Sic Alps, Thurston Moore/Nels Cline, Jamie Lidell, Darin Gray and Syl Johnson. All the extraneous stuff (art/photo exhibits, comedy, films, etc.) was very enjoyable too. Bonus was good, reasonably priced food and beer (Lagunitas bottles for $5.00), the staff is extremely friendly and there is almost no security/bouncer presence. Wilco dudes and other musicians just stroll around all day. ATP for cool dads and aging hippies, no doubt.

They hadn't played as a strict duo in 13 years, they did a full hour. Complete scree fest, driving the dads away in hoards. Lovely, lovely time.

This is their best album since YHF.

It's because they started doing power pop again

its not just power pop though, the mellow songs really hit the spot. "whole love" and "one sunday morning" make a great ending to the album.
