  1. I think 'comforting' is the correct word for the sound, intention and effect of this record. Nice stuff. Tweedy solo seems to be a lot less 'challenging' to me than what Wilco creates as an ensemble, and that's just fine. I like music that's well crafted and pleasant as much as I like music that's challenging. It's nice to hear his identity as a producer and arranger continue to grow more specific. His lead guitar playing continues to provide the bit of tension these gentle ditties need to keep you guessing. I have to say 'Natural Disaster' conjures a little too much Allman Brothers "Ramblin Man" for me, but otherwise it's a pretty flawless ride.
  2. This is a cool little book. I'm a compulsive songwriter. Not with the same prolificness as Mr. Tweedy, but I'm certainly not wanting for ideas. That said this book gave me a few new ideas to mix up the process, and overall it eloquently affirmed what I like about doing it. I might be putting my copy in my buddy's mailbox when I'm done with it. He's going through a dry spell.
  3. Yeah, I think Jeff's publishing keeps him going okay, but for the band as a whole, and their crew (my buddy just joined as guitar tech) I think months without touring is pretty hard.
  4. So far I like "Guess Again" quite a bit. The title track is probably a grower. What is one listen anyway? This sounds like it will sit nicely, unsurprisingly, to the Warms. A welcome addition in my ears.
  5. If this is true my genius is terribly accidental and beautifully idiotic, but Wilco's genius is more extensive than we knew.
  6. I'd bet on something soon, but don't know when.
  7. It's a cross between Locator and Can't Stand It. Half nervy post punk, half Smashmouthesque radio hit.
  8. How do I go back to the older episodes? Also I often wonder why a bigger deal has never been made of the prominent hammer dulcimer sounds on AGIB. Maybe that was really the cimbalom. Also my friend in high school interrupted a hammer dulcimer performance by shouting "I was hammered all summer too!"
  9. I wonder what was the 'disaster' part of that Tower Records performance that earned it that name.....
  10. I would dig that too, but my intuition from what's been going on in the Tweedy house, and on their instagram show is that he wrote a bunch of new folk songs and recorded them with his boys. Which will probably also be awesome. I just figure with the Wilco's scattered in different states they're not finishing any new records any time soon.
  11. it's really the only song on Schmillson that isn't amazing.
  12. It is arguably tastier than any of the mass produced, corporate American lagers.
