Big Ups: Wilco's Jeff Tweedy Picks His Bandcamp Favorites
"No matter how much he has on his plate, Wilco
's prolific frontman Jeff Tweedy still sets aside part of each Friday to discover new music. 'If you'd told me when I was 12 or 13 that every Friday I could listen to basically every new record that came out, I'd basically lose my mind,' Tweedy says with a laugh, over a phone call before a show in Italy in support of his band's tremendous new album, Ode to Joy
. 'Sometimes I form opinions about stuff that isn't for me, like modern country, that I'm just curious about. It's insane sounding, but I try to listen to everything.'"
I imagine O'Rourke would definitely be there and that Bill Orcutt could be, but I didn't know he was a big Grouper fan. NOICE.
