Yo La Tengo
Yo La Tengo

"You have to give it up for Wilco for making things so simple. The group's seventh album -- due out in late June -- will be titled Wilco (The Album). Even cooler: there's a cut on the disc titled "Wilco The Song," which Glenn Kotche describes to Rock Daily as "a great, upbeat song professing our love for our fans."

There's a little something for everyone on the group's new disc, which they recorded in their loft space in Chicago. "One Wing" and "Sunny Feeling" are breezy, pop-friendly tunes; "Deeper Down" is a mellow ballad spiked with atmospherics and chamber strings; the nearly-six-minute jam "Bull Black Nova" starts with rollicking drums, stacatto keys and guitars before exploding into a killer solo from guitarist Nels Cline. Think of the it as a sonic follow-up to the kraut-rockin' "Spiders (Kidsmoke)." "That one's a really intense, powerful song," says Kotche of "Nova." "It's got a static groove that's really insistent. There's a lot of great guitar moments on that song."

This June, Wilco will hit the road for a summer tour of festivals (Bonnaroo, 10,000 Lakes), minor league ball parks (Keyspan Park in Brooklyn, NY) and intimate theaters and the crew will be unleashing most of the 11 tracks from the new record..."
[Rolling Stone]

Does Keyspan Park have beer guy(s) selling beer in the crowd, like sometimes at Webster Hall?

For a second I thought Yo La Tengo was naming their new record Wilco (the album) now that would be funny !

Posted by Anonymous | April 28, 2009 11:42 PM

Why can't they call both the album and the song simply "Wilco"? Bad Company did it with "Bad Company" and its title track. Did Wilco think people would get confused? Pffft.

Also, Y&T >>>>>>>> YLT.

I bought 4 field tickets to KeySpan but just realized I'm going to be out of town. Also, any other concert you got shut out of this summer, I have tickets but something else just came up.

I'll see them in pairs or singles for $100 each.

"Why can't they call both the album and the song simply "Wilco"? Bad Company did it with "Bad Company" and its title track."

So did Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and Motorhead. All bands that wipe their asses every morning with Wilco (The Toilet Paper).

YLT also once opened for Talib Kweli.
