Wilco - Sunloathe Video

Wilco are no strangers to animated videos — they’ve worked with Popeye in the past, for instance — and their new clip, for The Whole Love’s somber ballad “Sunloathe,” continues on that path. Created by director Peter Glantz (Andrew W.K., OK Go!) and illustrator Nathaniel Murphy (whose illustrations were included in the album packaging for Sky Blue Sky, and who is also Glenn Kotche’s drum tech), the video “reflects the complicated emotions expressed in the song, where we feel hope and sorrow coexist,” according to Glantz. There’s definitely an epic tale being told here, albeit a pretty surreal and inscrutable one. Check it out.

  1. hey wilco….can you make a video where jay bennett comes back and his presence monitors the soaring heights of tweedy bullshitism? jeff was better when he had a human limiter… bennett being a dildo or not

    • Way to trash both Tweedy and Bennett.

      Bennett would be amazing in the current lineup…he was an incredible songwriter, and I really fully didn’t appreciate him until he was gone.
