  1. Only 10 tracks total on the album — maybe they're trying to not reveal too much and maximize the wow factor?
  2. Could've been more. I mean, Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, Golden Smog, Loose Fur, The Minus 5, Tweedy and Jeff Tweedy are all technically separate names, right?? Seriously though, nice list. I remember a few years ago there was some kind of challenge like this to put together a representative six-song list. Talk about hard choices! I remember thinking too hard and coming up with a definitive six tracks. Would have to come up with 14 more for this.
  3. Don't know if these are official, but track lengths are listed here 1. Infinite Surprise 5:43 2. Ten Dead 3:55 3. Levee 4:11 4. Evicted 3:30 5. Sunlight Ends 3:53 6. A Bowl and a Pudding 4:03 7. Cousin 4:11 8. Pittsburgh 5:14 9. Soldier Child 4:17 10. Meant to Be 3:55 Total length: 42:52 I like that they let these songs stretch out a bit more. At 3:30, "Evicted" is the shortest song on the album.
  4. Ha, don't worry, you're not the only one! Nothing more exciting than a new album announcement. I always get hyped for it, but I feel especially excited for this one in a way I haven't since The Whole Love.
  5. I get that. The "art pop" moniker brings some big league expectations. I wouldn't describe the song as jarring or anything. But it seems like a good single, with a catchy chorus, clean vocals and strong melody. Who knows, it could end up being an outlier from the album. The weirder/noisier tracks might be album cuts. It was only a first impression, but I liked the song.
  6. I caught the new song on XRT and thought it was very good! It was in the "breezy pop" Wilco style, with a distinctly Tweedy melody. Maybe in the vein of "Taste the Ceiling" or the less-twangy songs from Cruel Country like "Tired of Taking it Out on You" or "Hearts Hard to Find," but with a touch more production.
  7. Any other Chicago peeps going to Lucius and Dawes at Canal Shores tonight?
  8. I guess that National Cousins Day idea is as good as any... only because Google tells me both National Vanilla Pudding Day and National Chocolate Pudding Day already passed. (May 22 and June 26, evidently!)
  9. I wonder if we'll get the official announcement this week. With Jeff's solo tour kicking off, it cold be a nice time for a news drop. 🤞🏼
  10. Hmm, "Tour to Infinity" and the presale code is SURPRISE. References to the first track of the forthcoming album?
  11. The one-year anniversary of Cruel Country (digital version anyway) is this weekend I think. Maybe that gets its last moment in the spotlight and then the news comes in the next week or two? I'd think an announcement would at the very least come before Jeff's solo tour next month.
  12. I would say "hey chicken, you're all talk," but this seems legit! Love it.
  13. Here's hoping for sooner rather than later! While it seems like the Cruel Country cycle has pretty much run its course now, I would understand if they want to take a beat. But, on the other hand... why wait??
  14. Really looking forward to this. Not that I didn't like Cruel Country — I did, for the most part — but my level of anticipation for this one feels higher. Anyone think they might get it out by this fall?
