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. Over the past few months, the band has shared nearly half of the new album: “I’ll Sing It,” “Summer Noon,” “Wait For Love,” “Diamond Light Pt. More »

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.

Tweedy – “Flowering”

Remember how Wilco posted Yankee Hotel Foxtrot for free online until they could find a label to release it?

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 lengthy experimental excursio… More »

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 »
