For those anxiously, and curiously, anticipating Wilco's forthcoming effort, Wilco (The Album), your wait is over. After the album's unfortunate leak last night, the band is now streaming the entire record from their website. My initial evaluation of it is a solid piece of work- mixing elements of their past albums, while still moving forward as a band. But more on that when the time comes. Check out Wilco (The Album) at the Wilco site, here. The record is out June 30th, via Nonesuch. Also, check out the track listing below.
Animal Noises is a blog about music, both old and new, and how it stands up in the current music scene. The staff-- John, the editor, with contributions from Matt-- uses their various music backgrounds to intelligently discuss artists and albums, focusing on the good, while not avoiding the bad. We focus on sub-genres of rock, electronic music and hip hop, but don't be surprised to see the occasional wildcard too.
