A Wilco birthday.

I got one of the best birthday presents ever the other night, when I dug through some packing peanuts to pull out the 7″ clear, first-pressing vinyl single of the new Wilco song “I Might” b/w a cover of Nick Lowe’s “I Love My Label,” in a special Solid Sound Festival edition. My dear friend Dainon, who covered the fest for me, sent it on over. “I Might” is muscular and crunchy pop, like no one does quite as well as Wilco. Since we can’t all gather ’round my record player (boo), I wanted to make sure you’d heard the sweet melody of the b-side especially — a charming way to honor the founding of the new Wilco label, dBpm Records.

I Love My Label (Nick Lowe cover) – Wilco

The new Wilco album The Whole Love comes out in one month (9/27), and you can listen to a rad assemblage of preview tracks over at The Wounded Jukebox. Cannot wait.

  • Happy Birthday, fellow Virgo!

    I feel like there’s yet another Virgo who started this whole Nick Lowe resurgence by covering the same song at Matador’s 21st last year – Ted Leo. His version’s also worth checking out.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
