I didn’t feel the need to start a new thread, but Spotify added 2 new Jeff Tweedy songs today. They’re part of the Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 6. They are C’mon America and UR-60 Unsent. 
 

C’mon America sounds like it might have been played on The Tweedy Show, but I haven’t looked hard enough at the untitled songs to see which one. I thought that it might have been “I Love My Country Stupid & Cruel (Sing In The Choir), but it is not. 
 

UR-60 Unsent is actually the song that Jeff called Film Strip, when he played it twice on an older episode of The Tweedy Show. That was quite the surprise to see that odd title and have it be Film Strip. 
 

Enjoy!!

Pat sings the Beatles and demonstrates his musical versatility by mastering the bog roll.

 

The Whole Love is probably my fav Wilco album - I like to think because Pat co-produced and gave it a fantastic bright but not over-polished sound full of aural interest - just like a good Beatles album.

Was that an amazing version of Heros, or was I just in a good mood?!?!?  (Just saw a snowy owl a half hour prior!)  I absolutely loved it, except for the weird tuning!  I don't have enough guitars for that!!

I would guess not. That's the same photo they used for last night's episode. Also, except for the few times they've done the show from out on the road, it has been a very, very long time since they did shows on two nights in a row.

That’s my thought, too.  I assume Instagram was just not refreshing itself on my end, but it made me wonder since there is obviously a lot of developing news in the Wilco world these days.
