Mostly an acoustic collection, Schmilco bears neither the vicious, fuzz-glam guitars of Star Wars, nor the dazzling, baroque-ish arrangements that fans have come to expect from Wilco. But in their place is a spaciousness and chaos that might feel welcome after 20-some years of enjoyed but now-familiar Wilco releases. It is an intentionally loose affair. Schmilco features 12 new songs written by Jeff Tweedy and is the band’s third release on their own dBpm Records. It follows Star Wars, which was released for free and as a surprise in July 2015.

A ghost is born merges traditional rock elements of guitars, drums and keyboards with the band’s signature sonic experimentation, resulting in a record that is arguably the band’s most organic and live sounding effort to date. Much of …ghost was tracked live in the studio with co-producer O’Rourke and engineer Chris Shaw (Bob Dylan). It was mastered at London’s Abbey Road.

Star Wars is the Grammy-award winning band's ninth studio album. The Chicago band Wilco has digitally released a new album, Star Wars, through its own dBpm Records. The album was made available after Wilco leader Jeff Tweedy revealed news of its existence during a live interview with Pitchfork at The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.

Sky Blue Sky is Wilco's sixth studio album, released on May 15, 2007 by Nonesuch Records. It was the band's first studio album with Nels Cline and Pat Sansone, and debuted on the Billboard 200 at number four. Sky Blue Sky has hints of early-seventies Southern California folk-rock sweetness in the harmonies. The album is filled with brash guitar solos that take songs like "You Are My Face" and "Shake It Off" in unexpected directions.

In 1994, singer-songwriter Jeff Tweedy formed Wilco with three of his band mates following the break-up of alt-country pioneers Uncle Tupelo. Daring in its own right, Summerteeth foreshadows the even more experimental work to come on the band's Nonesuch debute, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

First off, forget everything you thought you knew about Wilco. Forget the cheery country rock tunes like "Casino Queen" and "Box Full of Letters" you loved so much on their debut, A.M.. But most of all, forget for the seventy-three minutes it will take you to get through this double-shot that Tweedy was in a band called Uncle Tupelo, because, apparently, he has. If A.M. was Wilco's Hard Day's Night, about what you'd expect considering the track record, then Being There is their Revolver, chock full of unexpected sounds and styles, giddily tossing right and left hairpin turns at an audience who will likely not know what hit them.

This unexpected yet exciting pairing presents one of the most anticipated new releases of the year. This Deluxe Edition features 5 additional bonus tracks, marked as "Variations EP".

Part twee folk, part ratty punk, California duo Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker make music that’s nostalgic for 90s riot grrrl outfits like the Breeders, while also effusing millennial ennui; Magnifying Glass, from their 2015 debut LP, Before the World Was Big, was 39 frantic seconds of string-plucking and lyrics about wanting to hold the world inside your head, while early single Blah Blah Blah was mostly built around those three words, delivered in a mocking tone. This new record builds on the latent disquiet that bubbles under the surface of Girlpool’s nonchalance. Despite the addition of a full band, it still manages to sound like a collection of lullabies. With only two songs passing the three-minute mark, this is blink-and-you’ll-miss-it angst, but deserving of your attention nonetheless.

Nels Cline was named by Rolling Stone as one of the '100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time'. He has led various groups of his own, most consistently the avant-garde ensemble the Nels Cline Singers, and appeared as a guest or feature player on more than 200 albums. Whether playing with his own avant-jazz bands or Wilco, strangeness and invention are two of guitarist Nels Cline's defining characteristics. Since the 1980s, he's longed to cut a large-scale album of "mood music" revolving around the concept of love and romance. He made ever changing lists of tunes from the Great American Songbook, cinema, jazz, pop, and exotica, but thought the project beyond his capability.
