Introducing the Ultimate Music Guide to Wilco

It’s been 25 years since the first Wilco album, the fiery AM, and it’s an anniversary we felt like...

A couple of old Daniel Bachman records appearing here after the great show he played with Jake Xerxes Fussell in Cambridge this week (I reviewed it here; please enjoy also my trademark terrible photography).

Elsewhere, these are the records I’m playing while trying to follow two cricket matches and the Giro, and maybe do some work finishing this issue. Special new additions this week come from the Deslondes, putting some more distance between themselves and their old collaborator Alynda Lee; another track from the James Elkington solo debut; Mary Epworth; and I guess Grizzly Bear and LCD Soundsystem, though you maybe know about those already. Lee Bains record is fire by the way and I’ll drop a track in here as soon as I can. Thanks, as ever.
