Sea Hag's Ultra Fabulous 2007 Music Review : Wilco

Sky Blue Sky

Even if you don't know who Wilco is, you've probably heard most of the music from this album already- they played it on the new Volkswagen commercials:

I liked this album. They ditched a lot of the twangy country flavor and all of the experimental noise-thing that they tried on some of their previous work and produced an album that is very mellow and melodic. It's a great album to put on when you're hanging out on the couch and reading a book. Wilco's lead singer Jeff Tweedy went on a solo tour earlier this year and Noochie and I went to see him. I really dug the stripped-down acoustic thing he did, and I think this album is a reflection of that.

Recommended songs:
"Sky Blue Sky"
"On And On"

Hi SeaHag. Your comments on Elastic Waist were making me smile so I thought I'd check you out. Anyhoos... I LOVE Wilco and while I saw them live this summer, sadly, Jeff's solo gig didn't make it to my neck of the woods... but I did see it on TV. Awesome!
