Wilco - Schmilco

Record of the Week is Schmilco, the tenth studio album from the Chicago based Wilco and it is a beauty!

It is predominantly played out on acoustic instruments (there are still some wailing solos) and has the best pacing, really mellow, plenty of space to hear everything. Joan Cornellà's artwork is superb... why this is only the first time anybody has had him 'dirty up' their album cover we'll never know. Mellow jams, great songs.

Afraid we sold out of the pink vinyl on preorder... sorry.
