“Wilco are one of the most respected bands on the planet — paragons of good taste, masters of genre-bridging craftsmanship and chill independence.” – Rolling Stone
The story of Wilco spans over two decades of releases and touring, and is punctuated by Grammy wins, record label dust-ups, surprise albums and, more than anything, a bold creativity that leads the band down new paths that fans and critics are happy to follow. Wilco’s latest album, Star Wars, caused headlines when it was dropped for free on the band’s website in July, 2015. “It makes me feel limitless and like there’s still possibilities and still surprise in the world, you know?” frontman Jeff Tweedy told Rolling Stone about the album. Wilco has carved out a special place in modern music with a sound that is both experimental and familiar, with melodies that instantly stick to the soul and cryptic, impressionistic lyrics. From the ashes of alt-country came a band that has been defined by artistic integrity, boundless creativity and comforting genius.
