WILCO THE WHOLE LOVE

We love Wilco’s energetic, exploratory new record The Whole Love, so it’s no surprise we love the bonus tracks too.

“Speak Into the Rose” is a seven-minute epic of a krautrock-y instrumental jam, a weird fevered dream of a song that amalgamates Wilco’s trademark alt-country riffs with massive drums and toe-tapping electronic loops – basically, it’s amazing. If you can stop listening to that, try “Message from the Mid-Bar” too – it’s a Cass McCombs-y fingerpicked desert sunrise anthem in the vein of Wilco’s more traditional material.

Take a listen to both, and make sure you check out the record too — it’s streaming right over here.
