Wilco Will Love You Baby

Seeing as I’ll be going to see Wilco at Strathmore (my 5th Wilco show!), I decided to try listening through their discography. Going through a band’s discography is a little like taking a trip down memory lane – you can’t help but reminisce about your personal circumstances around the time each record came out and… Read more »
