  1. Flaming Lips - American Head (I didn't see this one listed, so threw it in. I liked some of those mentioned, including Tweedy's solo record & Soul Asylum's newest. The Summerteeth & Pleased To Meet Me reissues nice as well.)
  2. I'm not hearing it either. Been awhile since I last listened to Steal Away....pretty great tune.
  3. I like the sound of "Pecan Pie"...comfortable. Food musta been on the mind of Jay or Jeff when naming "Pieholden Suite". "Spiders singing in the salty breeze"....?....that's a stretch. Chinese Apple. Hey Chicken (....hanging on a sour grape vine) A Slim Jim is referenced in "I Might". That's all I got. I think it's high time Jeff writes a song or 2 about food he loves. Chicago pizza, oatmeal with bananas, that Strawberry Pretzel salad that's popular around Thanksgiving....just throwing some ideas out there.
  4. This was from Bateman's "Smartless" podcast with Sean Hayes & Will Arnett. Darius Rucker was their guest, whom I found to be an entertaining listen. Bateman said how much he loved Wilco, and I believe it was Arnett who chimed in that Tupelo was one of his favorites as well. That spurred Rucker to say how much he liked Son Volt, namely their first record Trace. SIDENOTE: In the podcast, Rucker said how much he loves Barry Manillow. Not as a guilty pleasure, but just that he thinks he's damn good. I like that. And agree with him.
  5. Impossible task, but what the hell. I'll attempt: Black Eye Passenger Side Another Man's Done Gone Remember The Mountain Bed Dreamer In My Dreams All The Same To Me She's A Jar Pieholden Suite At Least That's What You Said Either Way
  6. I'm thankful to have Jeff Tweedy & Wilco to listen to for the past 25+ years. Tweedy's voice is comforting. And comfortable. Same for much of his & Wilco's music.
  7. I haven't heard that either. How's it compare to Kicking At The Perfumed Air? Thought that was a pretty great record to remember Bennett by.
  8. Nice review in Pitchfork. I really like this line from Stephen M. Deusner: "On Summerteeth Jeff Tweedy and Wilco sound jumpier and nervier than they’d ever sounded before, as though they’ve been struck by lightning" https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/wilco-summerteeth-deluxe-edition/
  9. Agree. I might have played Soft Bulletin, Summerteeth & Deserter's Songs (Mercury Rev disc out in late '98) every day for all of 1999. Pavement, Built To Spill & Sigur Ros also had really good albums out that year.
  10. Summerteeth came out two months prior to SB, amazingly. What a couple months those were!
  11. "American Head" is out today. Beautiful record. I got thinking...has there been a better American band the last 25+ years? Yes, of course it's subjective. And yes, Wilco has a very good argument. I lean that way myself. There's something about the Flaming Lips quirkiness and resiliency and Wayne Coyne's optimism and hope that feels like the American spirit. I like his new quote in Rolling Stone: "I think the world is a wonderful, beautiful, insane place. I don’t think of the world as being this great punisher that’s here to teach us horrible things. Surely, there is a lot of injustice and there’s a lot of pain, but the world can really only be as beautiful as you see it. Two people can be standing in front of the sunset, and one of them just sees it as a waste of time: 'What are we standing here for?' And the other one sees it as the greatest experience they’ve ever had." Anyhoo. Music fans are lucky to have both bands creating good music for so long.
  12. Tweedy Show thread reveals Jeff talks of Summerteeth demos out in November. SWEET!
  13. If the 5 released songs are an indicator, this record's gonna be a MUST buy. Giving me Soft Bulletin vibes, but yet sounds really fresh. Out September 11th.
