Wilco returns with another unassuming record.
Wilco comes through with a free, scrappy album of what sounds like some fun, colorful self-recorded sessions.
I don't know how this slipped by me, but here's a new video from Wilco for the track "Dawned On Me," which comes off the band's latest LP, the Whole Love.
When some artists get big, they look to collaborate. Some collaborate with other musicians, and others collaborate with cartoons. Wilco chose the latter, and decided Popeye was the appropriate fit. Of course Olive Oyl falls in love with Jeff Tweedy, but Popeye doesn't put up much of a fight. Maybe he realizes there's just not competing with the frontman of Wilco.
How often does something like this happen? The track streaming above is basically Wilco's Jeff Tweedy singing over the instrumental to the Deerhoof track "Behold a Marvel in the Darkness," which comes from Deerhoof's latest album, Deerhoof vs. Evil. Now all we need is to get Satomi over a few tracks on the Whole Love. Then we'll be all set!
On Wilco's new single, the band shoots for something fun and light-hearted. While it's not the most impactful thing the band has ever done, it is a sweet little introduction to the forthcoming album the Whole Love. If the entire LP sticks with this mood, we could be in for a nice combo of songs that create a perfect summer album. I'm just hopeful at this point. What do you think of this track? Love it? Hate it? Why? What do you think this forthcoming Wilco LP will have in store? Will you be returning to this song again before the album's release?
