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...

As you’ve hopefully noticed, we’ve had something of a makeover at this week. Not to get too bogged down in technical hype at this point, but the whole site should be easier and more satisfying to use, not least on your phone or whatever, where you won’t need to try and read 5,000 words of prime Uncut feature in a microscopic point size any more.

Anyhow, this is the music which soundtracked our surprisingly non-traumatic website migration (God knows what the developers, who did the actual hard work, were listening to down on the third floor). Can I especially flag the first track to surface from the wonderful Weather Station album, the new Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and a new live epic from Chris Forsyth and his Solar Motel Band? Thanks…
