This week Wilco took the sensible step of streaming their new album Wilco on their own website following a full leak online. The band had clearly planned ahead and quickly moved to placate fans tempted by downloading the leaked tracks.
On first listen the new record is shaped by Krautrock structures, sparkling guitar interplay and as usual, highly accomplished instrumentation. We've yet to take in Jeff Tweedy's words, but it's safe to say that Wilco is a winner; proven by the band's eagerness to stream its entirety to the world, 6 weeks before stated release date. Now that takes some balls.
