Wilco - "Love Is Everywhere (Beware)"
On the lead single from Wilco's new LP, songwriter Jeff Tweedy fully embraces his role as one of American music's most respected voices. In what could be read as a rebuke to the anger and hatred that defines modern America, Tweedy sings of the good will that is still sleeping below the surface, even with "riots raining down." Much like the rest of the album, it eschews the aggressive experimentation of their early work, embracing a quite mystique that is no less effective. While its certainly not the most exciting music being made today, you may find it deeply moving if you listen in the right mindset. It might even inspire you to reach out to a friend you've been slowly losing touch with.
