Wilco: The Whole Love (dBpm)
The last two extra tracks on the deluxe version are "Speak into the Rose," a wonderfully propulsive Krautrock rip, and a less-plush alternate take of "Black Moon," a gently jangling ballad that delicately wafts the deluxe album to a beautiful, tender conclusion. Think about the contrast there, then imagine them combined in one song. You've basically imagined the whiplash-inducing opening track on the main album. I've had my problems with Wilco in the past: S/T was kinda boring, Sky formulaically pretty, the Jim O'Rourke-induced artiness of Ghost too stiffly self-conscious. Here, the beauty and the experimentation have been more organically merged, suggesting that Nels Cline has finally gelled as a member.
Later tracks find their '70s rock fixation leading to some mildly psychedelic touches, some gritty garage-rock moves (even Mysterians-esque organ on "I Might"), a light-hearted update of The Band's sound »
In next month's Take Me Home Tonight, Topher Grace and Anna Faris lead a cast of 20-somethings in a comedy set at a party in the '80s. The studio is naturally harnessing the I Love the '80s vibe to help market the film, which includes this fun video of the cast re-enacting scenes from iconic films of the decade, set to Atomic Tom's "Don't You Want Me." It's got everything from Ghostbusters to Say Anything and way beyond, so check it out and tell us how many movies can name! »
