Via the music blog I Am Fuel, You Are Friends by blogger Heather Browne, I see that a band I discovered the other day and really like, Fleet Foxes, is touring this summer with my all-time faves, the soundtrack of my life, my main heartbeat of a band for a good ten years now: Wilco. Now that’s a lineup.
With a screencap from the Fleet Foxes MySpace page Heather notes how the band feels about opening for Wilco:
Here’s the Fleet Foxes song everybody loves, the one I just added to my winter mixtape, White Winter Hymnal. I hear Band of Horses, I hear America, I hear Iron & Wine. This song is like Angela Carter’s The Company of Wolves had a baby with the Beach Boys.
And Wilco fans, hold on to your fucking hats! Check out these posts from Heather for a zipped, streamable, downloadable collection of cover songs by Wilco. Nick Lowe, the Kinks, Steely Dan… MINE MINE MINE!
Thank you for the good stuff Heather!
