The Chicago band Wilco released their 10th studio album, Schmilco, in September 2016. Schmilco features 12 new songs written by Jeff Tweedy and is the band’s third release on their own dBpm Records. Mostly an acoustic collection, Schmilco bears neither the vicious, fuzz-glam guitars of Star Wars, nor the dazzling, baroque-ish arrangements that fans have come to expect from Wilco. But in their place is a spaciousness and chaos that might feel welcome after 20-some years of enjoyed but now-familiar Wilco releases. It is an intentionally loose affair.
Wilco is Jeff Tweedy, John Stirratt, Nels Cline, Glenn Kotche, Patrick Sansone and Mikael Jorgensen. For the first time in their career, they will be performing at Cap Roig Festival.
