Wilco Cancel Indianapolis Show In Protest Of Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act

Last week, Indiana governor Mike Pence signed a disgusting piece of legislation into law that will allow businesses to discriminate against LGBT people based on the grounds of "religious freedom." (Well, the actual wording of the law is a little more complicated than that, but that's what it will end up doing i… More »

Watch Stephen Colbert Unleash The Dad Jokes Upon Tweedy

In his capacity as the frontman of Wilco, Jeff Tweedy has been on The Colbert Report more than once. He was on again last night, this time as half of Tweedy, his new band with his son Spencer. Unsurprisingly, the whole idea of a father/son band gave Colbert a whole lot of material… More »

Stream Tweedy Sukierae

Tweedy, the new band that Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy formed with his drummer son Spencer, haven't yet released their debut album Sukierae, but they haven't exactly been withholding, either.

Wilco @ LC Pavilion, Columbus 9/3/14

"We haven't played in about a year," Jeff Tweedy smirked, "so you guys are getting us fresh." It's true; the concert Wednesday in Columbus was Wilco's first of 2014, and at first it felt like a dusting off. They began with a batch of their oldest tunes -- "Misunderstood," "Forget The Flowers," and "Passenger Side"… More »

Tweedy – “Flowering”

Remember how Wilco posted Yankee Hotel Foxtrot for free online until they could find a label to release it? It seems like Jeff Tweedy is doing something similar with his new band Tweedy, a duo that also features his 18-year-old drummer son Spencer. He's just doing it a piece at a time. Tweedy's debut album… More »

Tweedy – “Diamond Light Pt. 1″ (Stereogum Premiere)

The songs released so far from Jeff and Spencer Tweedy's Sukierae -- "I'll Sing It," "Summer Noon," and "Wait For Love" -- have been relatively straightforward folk-rock tracks that ostensibly could've popped up any time during Tweedy's two-decade tenure with Wilco. "Diamond Light - Part 1," on the other hand, is a… More »

The latest single from Jeff and Spencer Tweedy's Sukierae is here, following "I'll Sing It" and "Summer Noon." It's a slow jam called "Wait For Love" that features some highly pleasant whistling.

A Ghost Is Born Turns 10

Following up a career-making, universally acclaimed opus is enough to fray the edges of a human being's sanity. We saw this in Meeting People Is Easy, the impossibly morbid documentary about Radiohead's tour in support of OK Computer, and we heard it in Kid A, Radiohead's even more insular and paranoid follow-up album. Wilco's 2002… More »
