WilcoWilco's Wilco (The Album) heads up a typically slow summer release week, with new discs by Moby (Wait for Me) and Bjork (Voltaic) also in stores tomorrow.

Other than the new Wilco album on vinyl, new Spoon EP and a couple of Television Personalities vinyl reissues (And Don't the Kids Just Love It and Mummy Your Not Watching Me), my music shopping list is pretty spare this week.

Relive the original Woodstock music festival with the 10-CD box set Various Artists: The Woodstock Experience.

i think the new wilco is decent. better than their last album, but doesn't hold a candle to yankee hotel foxtrot or any of their older albums. it is a bit dull at parts, but i wouldn't say super fucking boring.

still waiting for the first time you will shout out any release by any band or artist of color that isn't tv on the radio. its as if music was invented by james taylor and fleetwood mac.

"Levon Helms [sic] -- Electric Dirt out today as well."

It's listed. Was it added after you posted your comment?

“Flashy, if you don't have an appreciation for all well performed music then you just don't get it. Comments like yours, while well worded, only breed more ignorance on this planet. I hope you're a comedian or provide some other form of entertainment other than insulting talented people from the comfort of your room. Really, choose your battles dude... there are way more insidious things to fight against in this world.”

on A cappella Dirty Projectors

this comment could be applied to everyone on BV as well. just sayin'

I for one love the new Wilco. While not the best album they have ever put out it's still better then most of the stuff released today.
