Wilco – The Whole Love

Wilco’s relevant again!


Matt Carney
As far as Wilco albums go, 1999’s “Summerteeth” and 2004’s “A Ghost Is Born,” are two of the band’s most beloved, but rarely by the same fans. The former, the group’s third full-length, is a joyful romp of Americana indie rock and pop, bubbling along on a turgid undercurrent of relational struggle, drug abuse and loneliness.

VOTD: Man Battles escalator; loses

An open letter to indie rockers everywhere.

Truly inspired music videos like this one don’t come along often enough. So get creative. Do more with less. Here’s “My Machines,” by Battles, which, according to the press that came with it, is a single long shot. Remarkable. And vaguely reminiscent of a certain other one-shot video from early this year.
