Tweedy started out looking like a sweet little lark of a side project, a veteran easygoing rock star starting a band with his son. But more than six months after they released their debut album Sukierae, Tweedy have gelled into a serious touring unit. Last night, the band played their deep cut “World Away” on Conan, and you could see their instinctive interplay at work. Jeff and Spencer Tweedy both got quick solos, and everyone in the band got a chance to show off in ways that served the song. Watch the performance below.
Sukierae is out now on Wilco’s dBpm label.
