Thanks to a special correspondent, I was pointed in this direction yesterday and have been particularly enjoying the “Magazine Called Sunset” tune ever since (and that quiet folksy one about Dylan), although the whole EP is first-rate.
This was originally released a bonus disc to the Australian version of 2002′s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. According to the ever-helpful Wiki: The EP was comprised of six songs that were recorded but not released during the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot sessions. On the one-year anniversary of the release of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, Wilco made the EP available through their website. Hurrah! Check out this fine little collection:
Also, news out of Nashville last night; Jeff Tweedy announced that the title of the new Wilco album will be Sky-Blue Sky (not to be confused with Ryan Adams’ song Blue Sky Blues), and will be out May 15.
