Wilco teams up with Mavis Staples...
Posted 17 June 2013 - 01:25 AM
but I've been really taken with the new record from legendary soul singer Mavis Staples which was produced exclusively by Jeff Tweedy (of Wilco fame) and his 16-year old son @ Wilco Studios.
he and his son played every instrument on the album.
some of the tracks are remixes of classic Staples tunes and others are brand new co-written with Tweedy and Wilco. they started by debuting 2 singles this month on the Daily Show which really blew me away:
and here's the studio version of each song with behind-the-scenes footage of the recording sessions:
take notes, kids. that's real f*ckin' music.
yes, people still make real music and that's what it sounds like
I can't wait until they go on tour with this stuff.
sounds even better live than on the album.

The overall sound reminds me a little bit of Alabama Shakes. If you haven't checked out their album yet, I highly recommend you do.
Cheers for sharing this one, man. Excellent music
