New 7 Worlds Collide, "Bodhisattva Blues"
As many probably know, Radiohead's Ed O'Brien and Phil Selway, along with Neil Finn, Modest Mouse's Johnny Marr and Wilco's Jeff Tweedy (amongst many others) have put together a supergroup album under the name 7 Worlds Collide. Drawing from influences across the spectrum of music these artists cover, the release is intended to benefit Oxfam, which works to fight poverty. From what we've heard thus far, it's sure to impress, and this just adds to that feeling. "Bodhisattva Blues" is the sort of thing one might expect from Wilco, sans group vocals. Raucous, appropriately bluesy and grabbing at the corners of psychadelia, it's a standout sure to please fans for the overall prospects of the project. If you'd like to listen for yourself, check out the track, streaming over at Stereogum. And if you're in the U.S., look out for The Sun Came Out, which will be released via Sony on September 29th.
