#204: Wilco, “Ode to Joy”

Wilco’s eleventh full length is probably their most inspired since insert the name of your favorite Wilco record here. After two less remarkable albums and a small hiatus, they’re back with an album that may sound quieter because we’re really supposed to focus on Jeff Tweedy’s superior songwriting and Glenn Kotche’s exquisite drumming style, the stars of this show. It’s a pleasure to be living in the same timeline as Wilco.

Plus: new tracks by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Angel Olsen, Johanna Warren, Lightning Dust, Big Thief, Kacy & Clayton, Marinho, Carla dal Forno, Kelsey Waldon, Colter Wall, The Avett Brothers, Craig Finn, Mikal Cronin, The Growlers, Altın Gün, Chromatics, Land of kush, The Messthetics, and Penguin Cafe.

#73: Angel Olsen, “My Woman” / Big Thief, “Masterpiece”, +++

We’re back for the high season and this week’s playlist is a double playlist – that means we couldn’t put together a 14-16 song playlist like we do every week or two weeks, but we did a 2h+ playlist with 30 of our favorite tunes from the past weeks, starting with the surprisingly motorik new Lambchop 18min tune and visiting new albums by Angel Olsen (pictured above), Big Thief, Kelsey Waldon, Carl Broemel, BJ Barham, or Cass McCombs. Plenty of our favorite singer-songwriters are featured here, so if that’s what you’re looking for, this is your lucky day.
