In Defense Of Latter Day Wilco Part 1

January 18, 2012

“This is how I tell it
Oh, but it’s long”

If you just fixate on the Kraut rock and tape loops you’ll miss one you the more honest expressions of pure song craft than all the studio noodling could produce.

Clocking in at just over 12 minutes it still feels short.

Repeating a deceptively simple guitar melody a tale of fathers and sons and the burden of history begins to slowly unravel like a tangled ball of yarn.

Sometimes experimentalism doesn’t have to be so obviously in your face.

Or good songwriting never goes out of style
