  1. Count me in as one of those appreciative readers of yours, Paul. Always a pleasure! Sub "White Sox" for "Packers," and this perfectly describes me as well!
  2. I have to believe that Tweedy's anti-Grohl thing is more of a shtick now, right? I can't see him really disliking the guy at this point.
  3. Thanks for picking up with the recaps @u2roolz! I watched part of this today and was blown away by "Moonlight Mile." Just fantastic!
  4. Anybody know this new one they've been playing? Seriously though, can we talk about this song for a second? For all of eternity, I always thought the chords were a straight D-G-Gm throughout. But when I went to look it up for a refresher the other day, that middle G chord has come into question. Some tabs claim it's an Em, which sounds strange to me, but darned if it doesn't look like that's what Jeff plays in some videos (like this one). Could it just look like an Em because he's in drop D and thus not playing the low E string for that chord? Or is he playing something completely dif
  5. Thank you! Those descriptions sound great — I hope we get to hear these soon.
  6. So, has anyone heard these two new Wilco studio tracks yet? It's strange there's been literally no reviews of the songs themselves! I wonder how fleshed out "Half Life" is from the acoustic Tweedy Show version. And seemingly nothing at all is known about "I Can't." I'm hoping, at the very least, these songs make their way to streaming or something soon.
  7. Popping in as a dedicated @bböp reader to say thank you yet again for the wonderful reviews throughout the tour. I thought I was going to sit this show out until I was lucky enough to have tickets come my way at the last moment (even though the torrential downpour in the afternoon knocked power out at my house and I left my wife and kid at home to deal with it while I gallivanted into the city to see a concert ) . Fantastic show by the band. I loved the high-energy approach. When last seen at the Chicago Theatre, they were opening shows with Bright Leaves -> Before U
  8. More than a few! I always look forward to these too. Thanks Paul!
  9. The 1-2 punch of "Shot in the Arm" and "Random Name Generator" really give the shows a different vibe than opening with "Bright Leaves" and "Before Us"! Both ways are good, but this approach feels fresh right now IMO.
  10. This is how I feel as well! I bet there is some interesting AGIB stuff lying around. Those songs went through so many transformations from when they were debuted on the road to when the studio versions came out 2-3 years later. Alternate versions of "Spiders" and "Muzzle of Bees" would be particularly interesting, but who knows if studio recordings of those exist or not.
  11. Ha, no rush man. I didn't mean to put you on the spot, I was just joking around. Your tabs are always great and appreciated though! Thank you!
  12. Has anyone put together some chords/tabs for the new Tweedy album? @chisoxjtrain, I'm looking in your direction! I'd love to take strum at "Natural Disaster," "Gwendolyn" and "A Robin or a Wren," among others. "Guess Again" is up at ultimate-guitar.com, but it's cooler to have the tabs at VC!
  13. For me, it's one of the top albums of the year so far. A lot of great tracks.
  14. I played this today based on your tip. You're right, Nels is terrific on the album!
  15. Wow, he finally played "I'll Never Know"! I've been hoping to hear that song forever. I will have to check it out when it makes its way to YouTube.
  16. Thanks Freedy and u2roolz for the track analysis. Really interesting to see what did and didn't make it, based on what Jeff has been playing on the Tweedy Show. One random thing that struck me today: I really liked the song "Cold Water Falling," which Jeff described as a work in progress on the show, and was a little disappointed it didn't make it on the album. But I happened to listen to Tweedy's "Showbiz Kids" soundtrack on Spotify today, and one of the songs/fragments on there sounds a lot like the music to "Cold Water Falling." It's track 7, called "Burbank, California." Anyone else pick u
  17. Honestly, I wouldn't be as jazzed for a Wilco album recorded separately with them never being together. I'm sure they could do it, and it would probably sound good. But I'd rather they just wait and record together for a better energy, inspiration and direction. The quarantine makes no difference at all for a Tweedy record though.
  18. It looks like Wilcoworld is hinting at something with their tweet this morning: My guess/hope is a Tweedy solo album announcement.
  19. That sounds promising! Thanks as always for the recaps.
  20. Ha, I thought the same thing. I was surprised to see his name in the opening credits, and it made me listen intently throughout. Most of the time, I was wishing the interviewees would just shut up so I could hear the music! But yeah, I wondered if I could have guessed, or at least become curious, because the guitar was noticeably Tweedy-ish. The giveaway would have been when he played a few seconds of "Quiet Amplifier" about two-thirds of the way through.
  21. I was listening to the deluxe reissue of Being There yesterday, and it occurred to me that any of the bonus songs included on there, none of which have ever been played live to my knowledge, would be cool to hear: Late Blooming Son Dynamite My Soul Losing Interest Sun's a Star Better When I'm Gone Any of those would be interesting, but my vote would be for "Losing Interest" or "Sun's a Star."
  22. How crazy is that?! And of course it sounded amazing. Plus he segued into "In a Future Age" and a bit of "Pot Kettle Black," possibly my two favorite solo acoustic songs. Must be something about that tuning! I continue to be knocked out by the subtleties and nuances he performs on all these songs.
  23. Put me down for that one too. Along with: Chinese Apple I'll Never Know Leave Me Like You Found Me
