News & Reviews

  • Wilco made its Nonesuch Records debut with the release of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot fifteen years ago today, on April 23, 2002. On the album, Wilco delivers a thrillingly experimental work that scored a perfect 10 on Pitchfork, which hailed the album "simply a masterpiece." The New York Times said that "songs about love, America, apocalypse, and self-invention unfold in richly enigmatic arrangements" on the album. Rolling Stone named Yankee Hotel Foxtrot the No. 3 Album of the 2000s.

  • Wilco has released a full-length documentary film entitled Every Other Summer, about the band's music and arts festival, Solid Sound. Directed by Christoph Green and Brendan Canty of Trixie Films and shot in 2013, it documents the three-day event, which takes place at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA. The film features appearances and performances from a number of festival artists including Sam Amidon, who returns to Solid Sound next weekend with Bill Frisell. The two give a free set in Brooklyn's Prospect Park tonight for Celebrate Brooklyn!. 

  • About This Album

    In 1994, singer-songwriter Jeff Tweedy formed Wilco with three of his band mates following the break-up of Uncle Tupelo, the group that had come to represent the alt-country-oriented “no depression” movement of the early ’90s. Wilco’s debut, A.M. represents his first step into increasingly adventurous territory. “Tweedy shows an undeniable feel for melody, a gift for the resonant rhyme and an unhurried voice that reeks of cigarettes and charisma,” declared the Chicago Sun-Times. Includes the album on 12" vinyl and CD; Nonesuch Store purchases also include free MP3 downloads of the album.
