Stop shopping, even/ stop buying things...

Wilco is previewing four songs from their upcoming live album on their site. The high points are probably "Airline to Heaven" turning into some kind of Opry stomp and "At Least That's What You Said" building to a towering electric climax (I think I stole that from some erotic poetry I was reading). Despite it being Tweedy's band, it's odd how he's become secondary to the musicianship, almost obscuring his lyrics to the point that they become invisible. Well, maybe that's not fair, but with the current lineup, I think they've created a lot more open space for the music.

"Kicking Television" is still a fooking mess and pretty much the definition of a b-side.
