Music today has been Wilco’s A Ghost Is Born (2004), the band’s fifth album. It was a time when singer-guitarist Jeff Tweedy went nuts on the guitar with dramatic arrangements that had thoughtful songs suddenly surprised by often long angular noisy guitar explosions. Somehow it works but it wasn’t long before Nels Cline arrived to continue the idea with a little less abandon but with strikingly good results. Somehow the last ten years of Wilco have passed me by, I have some catching up to do.
Thank you for the continued support for the In Deep Music Archive project and the GoFundMe campaign, more on that as it advances.
