Jam of the Day – You and I and Wilco

At The Bell House last night, Nonesuch Records hosted a CD release party for the new album by the lovable jam rock band Wilco, aptly titled Wilco (The Album). This is the seventh studio album by the Chicago-based sextet, with eleven new songs, including a duet with Leslie Feist. To celebrate the album’s release yesterday, Paste magazine devoted their web site to the new record, calling it Wilco (The Takeover). Rolling Stone gave it four stars (out of five) and called the new album “a triumph of determined simplicity by a band that has been running from the obvious for most of this decade.” The album is getting great reviews so far. Their blend of catchy hooks and thoughtfully crafted lyrics will undoubtedly make it one of the best albums of the summer.

Standout tracks on the album include, “Wilco (The Song),” which they dedicated to their fans, the rollicking jam “I’ll Fight,” and the aforementioned duet with Leslie Feist, “You and I,” a light and dreamy track that I’m sure we can expect to hear in some upcoming movies. I just hope it’s not playing over a horribly cheesy montage (try not to imagine it…)
