- Wilco »
In what DiS's best but entirely unsubstantiated guess is a response to the recent leak of Wilco's drolly-titled seventh set Wilco (The Album), the entire kaboodle (due June 30) is now streaming online.
DiS is off to the pub in a second and sort of feels a little fraudulent commenting on a record we've only heard half of, once, but what the hey, that's the joy of music journalism.
Seems to have darkness and melancholy of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and A Ghost Is Born but less in the way of texture and ambition. No ten minute sound collages about migraines. Boo. That as I write this I'm listening to the wired, piano-stabbed epic, 'Bull Black Nova' which pwns everything off that wretched fiddle de dee Sky Blue Sky so comprehensively that one can't help but feel pretty enthused. Fuck, we're on about minute five here and Tweedy is SCREAMING. Me like.
Listen to it HERE
And the tracklisting would be:
- 'Wilco (The Song)'
- 'Deeper Down'
- 'One Wing'
- 'Bull Black Nova'
- 'You and I'
- 'You Never Know'
- 'Country Disappeared'
- 'I'll Fight'
- 'Sonny Feeling'
- 'Everlasting Everything'
Thoughts? Feelings? A return to form? Bit wishy washy? Or were you a dangerous idiot who thought Sky Blue Sky was their masterpiece?
