Wilco "Ode to Joy." I’ve listened through a couple of times now and have four tracks I like. Most of it puts me to sleep (especially the first four songs). Like: Everyone Hides, White Wooden Cross and a couple of others.

It’s their best since 2008’s ‘Stay Positive,’ and maybe their best yet. Craig Finn’s writing is certainly as strong as ever, and the return of the horn section and Franz Nicolay on keys has the band firing on all cylinders. My album of the year so far.

Hey, Tim -- Do you dig Craig's solo stuff, too? His new one (earlier this year) is pretty nice.
Much as I do with Jay, I pretty much think that everything Craig does is superb. Yes, ‘I Need a New War’ is fantastic.

Oh! I'll check this out asap. The Long Ryders were one of my favorite bands during the 80s (along with the Waterboys and Los Lobos).

The Pine Box Dwellers. From 2017, I guess, though just stumbled upon them. Very nice.

Joshua Ray Walker — ‘Wish You Were Here’ ..... It’s a damn fine country record from a very young man. Listen up:

It is PHENOMENAL. I am actually very surprised by how little mention he received on here while opening for Son Volt on the first leg of this tour. He was awesome in Chattanooga. This here’s a deeply serious songwriter drawing comparisons to Townes Van Zandt and John Prine that are *entirely* warranted. Can’t wait to see him headline a show sometime soon.
