First Listen: Tweedy, 'Sukierae'

Tweedy's new album, Sukierae, comes out Sept. 23.
Piper Ferguson Courtesy of the artist

Originally published on Wed September 24, 2014 10:39 am

A clue about the scruffy aesthetic of Sukierae arrives at the 2:27 mark of "World Away," one of 20 (!) songs on the first family-band album from Jeff Tweedy of Wilco. Until this point, the tune — a variation on the Bo Diddley beat strummed on acoustic guitar, with Tweedy's sleepy voice distantly implying a blues cadence — has been fairly straightforward.

Originally published on Fri October 17, 2014 9:31 am

Lydia Loveless released her third album, Somewhere Else, early this year. The 23-year-old released her first album when she was 19, though it was filled with songs she'd written early in her teenage years. By any measure, that's a lot of music in a short amount of time.
