Sizzle & Fizzle: Highs and Lows from the Last Week in S.F. Music

Sizzle • Wilco played a gorgeously melancholic set at the Warfield, reminding a sold-out crowd of the magic that happens when a masterful rock band's fantastic songs sound as good onstage as on its records. Singer Jeff Tweedy quipped that…

Music, Wilco loves you

Wilco loves you

For a band that's perpetually on the road, Wilco has always seemed very domesticated. Maybe it's the way founder Jeff Tweedy acts like a temperamental patriarch, alternately adopting musicians (guitarist Nels Cline) or disowning them (the late Jay Bennett) from…

Jay Bennett breaks a heart

Cormac McCarthy once said that all writers worth their salt should write about death. If literature doesn't take on that great mystery, then it just ain't literature in his book (joke intended). I'm not sure I agree with that sentiment,…

Loose Fur

Loose Fur is not a Jim O'Rourke album -- but that's only true in the sense that Magritte's famous painting The Treason of Images (which features the line "This is not a pipe" written in French below an obvious pipe)…

If there really were such a thing as altcountry radio, it would be difficult to imagine Wilco's new album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, getting played there. By all accounts, the band's fourth disc is a big, flying, techno-tinged "Fuck you!" to…

Wilco "A.M." (Sire/Reprise) For years, St. Louis' Uncle Tupelo was the rootsiest of alternative bands. The group treated songs the way heartland farmers treat crops -- mowin' 'em down with a thresher one week, carefully planting seeds the next. From…
