THE WHOLE LOVE
yet another new chapter in the innovative chicago band’s constantly evolving, enduring & storied career.
‘the whole love’ sets one of contemporary music's most creative & independent-minded bands on a wide open road. recorded in their north side chicago loft, the 12 new songs on this essential album capture the balance between the band’s art sensibilities, their fondness for traditional american music & their love of classic guitar-driven indie rock. the album is a veritable sonic stew, showcasing wilco’s far-reaching musical prowess (multiple guitars, keyboards, synthesizers & percussion plus mellotron, strings, loops & more) perfectly accompanying jeff tweedy’s provocative & insightful lyrics. from ‘i might’ (the first track from this album made available for fans) it was clear this was going to be a worthy continuation of the band’s celebrated career, showcasing their phenomenal song writing & dedicated attention to detail, that ensures there is never a dull moment for the ears on this album. “their most adventurous, confident & engaging record in years” – bbc music.
