This New York Times article discusses a Bowery Ballroom show on April 26th (I was there, they were top-notch) and their oft-discussed new album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.
I’m blinded by my own love for the group and really want to just write this guy off as a pretensious a**hole. BUT, does anyone think he has merit?
I mean, is there an excuse for lines like this?:
“Being an alternative-culture band, Wilco plays to an audience that fetishizes rejection, that loves a beautiful loser”
