The 10 Best Wilco Songs

Following the 1994 split of the celebrated Uncle Tupelo, the betting line amongst fans and critics alike held that between Jeff Tweedy and Jay Farrar — the band’s two major principals — it was the latter headed for bigger and better things. Both songwriters had produced inspired material during the Uncle Tupelo days, but the… More »

Watch Wilco On Fallon

It’s pretty nice when a band can show up on a late-night show when they don’t have any new product to promote, when they just happened to be passing through town on tour. That’s what happened last night, as Wilco, in the midst of a summer shed tour, came through Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. More »

Wilco – “Me Avivé”

Wilco just headlined this year’s Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, and in celebration of that, the band recorded a Spanish language version of The Whole Love‘s “Dawned On Me.” According to a press release, it’s intended as “a thank-you to Spanish-speaking fans everywhere.” Stream it below.

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Turns 10

The story of Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot has been told a million different times in the past decade, but it remains a pretty great story. Major-label band records album, correctly believing it to be their best work. Major label refuses to release album, incorrectly believing that there’s no hit to be heard there. Band retai… More »

Spencer Tweedy – “Rushmore”

Spencer Tweedy is the internet-famous son of Wilco frontman Jeff, and he’s also the party responsible for creating this video for his father’s band’s “Whole Love.” Late last night, Spencer posted a demo version of his own song “Rushmore” on Soundcloud, and it sounds exactly like a Muppet Babies version of Wilco. Download below. More »

Nick Lowe – “Sensitive Man” Video (Feat. Wilco, Tim Heidecker, Robyn Hitchcock, Marc Maron)

Acerbic British great Nick Lowe hasn’t made a music video in 18 years, but now here’s a star-studded, slightly ridiculous one for his song “Sensitive Man.” Director Scott Jacobson‘s clip stars comedian and podcaster Marc Maron as a reluctant attendee at a self-help lesson taught by Tim Heidecker. Wilco and Robyn Hitchcock also make cameos. More »

Wilco, White Denim @ Wiltern, Los Angeles 1/25/12

Instead of selling out one night at a large venue, Popeye pals Wilco sold out three nights at medium sized venues scattered across Los Angeles with their second stop being the Wiltern. Jeff Tweedy and company endeared their fans with an expansive 24 song set with five cuts from the classic Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. White… More »

Wilco & Popeye – “Dawned On Me” Video

While it seemed like a one-off at the time, the Popeye/Wilco collaboration rolls on with the video for The Whole Love cut “Dawned On Me.” Every Popeye character is sort of whittled down to their well-established, one-dimensional essence, but I suppose some generations might not know who or what the hell Popeye is, so I’m… More »

Wilco Play Conan, Release iTunes Session

Sometimes it’s hard for bands to stay in the spotlight mere months after their album drops, but Wilco seems to be having no problem with that lately, especially if you take into accord the Popeye comics-reading population and the late night TV audience. On the latter note, Wilco dropped by Conan to play “Whole Love“… More »

Spencer Tweedy – “Whole Love” Video (Feat. Tavi Gevinson)

The great American city of Chicago has lately produced two — count ‘em, two — weirdly famous precocious preadolescent hipster-fried bloggers: Wilco heir Spencer Tweedy and fashion prodigy Tavi Gevinson. And the two of them are totally buddies! It’s almost too cute for words.

Spencer Tweedy has just made his own video for… More »

And Here’s Jeff Tweedy With The Weather

During Wilco’s recent visit to Chicago’s WGN-TV, the band performed “Dawned On Me” and “Whole Love,” and as a special bonus, frontman Jeff Tweedy stepped out in front of the greenscreen to help deliver weather news and to gently send up the entire enterprise of delivering weather news. He is a funny person, and there… More »

Hear Wilco’s “I Might” In Demo & Daytrotter Form

The sparse, chugging, vaguely Spoon-sounding “I Might” was the first single from Wilco’s 2011 album The Whole Love, and it’s one of that LP’s highlights. And right now, we’ve got two new versions of the track to chew on. On Speak Into The Rose, the vinyl-only Record Store Day EP that the band released o… More »

Wilco – “Speak Into The Rose”

“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 squeak… More »

Watch Wilco On Letterman

Wilco spent a whole lot of last night on the Late Show With David Letterman set. The band served as musical guests on last night’s episode, playing their relentlessly pleasant new single “Born Alone” and gaining a pretty enthusiastic endorsement from Letterman himself. And in the Ed Sullivan Theater, the band also played a full… More »

Watch Jeff Tweedy Cover Black Eyed Peas, Wilco’s “Born Alone” Video

“Born Alone,” a vaguely Spoon-sounding track from Wilco’s new album The Whole Love, has a video. It’s a montage of band-related imagery (guitar racks, studio knobs, faces), and it’s nothing too exciting. But still! A good song! Mark Greenberg directs. Watch it below.

Also below, we’ve got something you’re definitely going to want… More »
