Also, Weird Al’s take on “We Will Become Silhouettes” is awesome!
Jeff Tweedy’s solo set from last year’s Philly Folk Fest is now up on wilcoworld.net. The gig contains interesting, toned-down versions of “Muzzle of Bees” and “I’ll Fight” and offers insight on an alternate universe where Wilco doesn’t exist. You can listen to the gig here. You’re welcome.
Seasick Steve, along with Jack White, John Paul Jones and Alison Mosshart, played a cover of Mississipi Fred McDowell’s “Write Me A Few Lines.” The performance came at the headline set of the second night of the iTunes Festival. It’s like a jam band dream sequence. It would only have gotten better if White and [...]
Wilco posted full audio streams of three shows on wilcoworld.net. The streams were recorded in Tucson (June 2009), New Orleans (March 2008) and Tulsa (May this year). The sound quality is kind of muddy, but “Jesus, Etc.” still melts the heart. Listen to the shows here

Talk about theatrics. The Flaming Lips played the song “Do You Realize?” during a 6am concert at a cemetery in Los Angeles. Nothing makes you think more about your mortality than encountering the question “Do you realize that everyone you know someday will die?” in a cemetery setting. It’s so creepy and poignant, you’ll need [...]

It still seems weird watching him with an acoustic guitar. Being folksy must come with age. Thurston Moore “Illuminine” (live at The Thing In The Spring [...]
Remember those Smiths demos that were featured on Stereogum and Rolling Stone? Apparently, those were just mono rips of the double vinyl set Demos & Instrumentals. Somebody over at smithstorrents had worked on the demos to produce a cleaner version of the original files. It’s been out for a while, but if you haven’t been [...]
