“Over the past 20 years, Wilco have gone from plain-spoken alt-country to the pinnacle of experimental folk and art rock.” – Rolling Stone.
Throughout the past two decades Wilco has won multiple Grammy Awards, released eight studio albums, as well as a trio of albums with Billy Bragg penning music to lyrics by Woody Guthrie and founded its own record label (dBpm Records) and festival (Solid Sound). The prolific Chicago sextet has also earned a reputation as a live powerhouse: “To see Wilco on stage is to hear the best of the best.” – NPR.
The Chicago rock band’s latest release is its ninth studio album Star Wars. Initially made available with no advance notice as a free digital download on July 17, Star Wars has been hailed as the band’s “most concise, catchy, naturally songful album in at least a decade,” by Rolling Stone and called “a roughhewn, fuzzed-out blast” by A.V. Club. It is available now for purchase in all formats: digital, CD and vinyl, through wilcoworld.net, iTunes, Amazon and at local independent record stores.
