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...

Some strong new music from some old favourites – Weller, Kristin Hersh, Wooden Shjips – while the irresistible rise of John Dwyer’s Thee Oh Sees continues apace. For fresher sounds, though, the Virginia Wing and Leon Vynehall tracks are terrific – as is Jonny Benavidez, whose Chicano Soul should put a spring in your step this Bank Holiday. Keen eyes will note I’ve included Luluc’s “Heist” again this week – I make no apologies as the track is a killer introduction to what I think is one of the best album’s I’ve heard so far this year.
