Put On Your Headphones Before You Explode

I don't really have a lot of traditions, but (dating back to A Ghost is Born) every time Wilco starts streaming their new album, I've stayed up late that night to listen to the thing.  You really ought to do the same, since I really, really like what I've heard so far.  It's like they took all the best parts of Sky Blue Sky, made everything punchier, and added some eclectic instrumentation and a Feist cameo.  This is a strong contender for my soundtrack to the Summer of '09.

I also like the many purchase options available, in case you'd like a tote bag to carry around your new purchase and a T-shirt with iron-on letters for the back.  It's true what they say: Wilco will love ya, baby.
