"I Might" - Wilco

It's always a good day when the mailman brings me some new vinyl! Wilco's got a new album, The Whole Love, set for a fall release and to make the wait more bearable they've pressed up a bunch of 7" singles for their new song "I Might." They made a limited run on translucent blue vinyl which looks really, really cool and sounds even better! You can still order "I Might" on black vinyl from the Wilco webstore and it also comes with a code for the digital files, so you get the best of both worlds! I'm really digging "I Might" and it is quintessential Wilco. Set up by an acoustic guitar riff, distorted bass, organ lines and a steady drum beat, "I Might" is the perfect juxtaposition of whimsical music and sarcastic lyrics. It's everything I love about Jeff Tweedy's writing and Wilco's musicianship. The B-side is a playful, tongue-in-cheek cover of Nick Lowe's " I Love My Label" from 1977. Seeing as The Whole Love will be the first release on Wilco's new, self-operated record label, dBpm Records, this song is hilariously appropriate. It sounds like Wilco's definitely got some killer stuff up their sleeve for The Whole Love and I can't wait to hear how it all plays out. Wilco caught a little flack for being less adventurous on their last release, Wilco (The Album), but it sounds like they are ready to meet any naysayers head on. The Whole Love is slated for a September 27th release and you can order a copy of "I Might" on black vinyl HERE.
