If you want to kick back with some of your male companions, crack open a few brewskis out on your family’s sunporch in your Chinese knockoff PacSun tees and listen to some kicking tunes, then look no further then former alt-country band Wilco. They are a musical flavor that pairs nicely with Bud Lite.

Last year’s randomly released Schmilco was regarded as one of the best rock albums of the year, which seems to be a recurring theme with the band’s complex lyrics and interesting arrangements than cannot solely be the product of frontman Jeff Tweedy. That being said, he does deserve a lot of credit, as does guitar wizard Nels Cline.

I won’t bore you with any more pointless words. If you haven’t heard of them, then definitely check out this sampler as just an appetizer of what is to become a continuing fascination with one of modern music’s most inventive and listenable bands.

Enjoy…
