“Speak Into The Rose” is a track from the deluxe version of Wilco’s new album The Whole Love, but it finds the band in the mode of A Ghost Is Born, their most experimental and divisive album. It’s a seven-minute instrumental with noised-up guitar leads and a krautrock beat built as much from synthetic squeaks as from drums. It all builds to a pretty intense rock freakout, though. And yes, it’s fun to hear Wilco in fuck-shit-up mode again, though you might not want to listen to this one if you’re nursing a hangover or something. It’s below.

The Whole Love is out now on Wilco’s own dBpm label.

  1. So good. But I could see why they left this off TWL. I cant really see where it would fit after Art of Almost.

  2. Art of Almost is by far the bet song on the album. Not really sure if I like the album, but I love that song. Worth a feature of the blog: http://www.lowerfrequencies.com/2011/09/wilco-art-of-almost/

  3. We dug the album mostly; our review was indifferent on the song “Art of Almost” though. Read our Wilco – The Whole Love Review.
