Sometimes the Internet is a drag. Yeah, it's fun to get a sneak preview of new albums, but hearing a highly anticipated record in its entirety weeks before you can hold it in your hand kind of kills the thrill of putting it on your turntable for the first time. So while everyone and their mother streamed the new Wilco album (aptly titled Wilco), I opted to hold tight for a physical copy. Call me crazy. Whatever. Now we can all enjoy the fine fruits of the band's labor. And how tasty it is! Here's the first track, also aptly titled "Wilco." Listen to it while picturing Jeff Tweedy in his sparkly Nudie suit.
Also out today, new material by The Builders and The Butchers, Moby, Bjork, Spoon and Tanya Tucker. Pick up some records and squeeze them!
Of course, when you buy it you'll be buying local, right?
