Summerteeth – Wilco

Wilco’s 1999 album Summerteeth will be reissued soon in a deluxe edition. I think this is a great album but it took me a while to get there. I had to get past my preconceptions about what kind of music Wilco should be making since they grew out of alt-country band Uncle Tupelo. This album has no connections at all with country music. None. It’s a very weary downbeat album. It reminds me of “I’m So Tired” by the Beatles. At least we now know what the album cover picture is about.
