WILCO Cruel Country 2LP (Color)

Cruel Country 2LP (Color)

  • Color: Red & White

Indie Exclusive on Limited Edition Red & White Vinyl.

Cruel Country is almost entirely composed of live takes, with just a few overdubs. Everyone - Tweedy, John Stirratt, Glenn Kotche, Mikael Jorgensen, Pat Sansone and Nels Cline - was in the room, playing together at The Loft in Chicago, unseparated by baffles. It’s a totally different way of making records that Wilco hasn’t used in years - maybe not since Sky Blue Sky. Across the record, there’s a loose conceptual narrative on the history of the United States. There's almost a chronologically accurate portrait of America that comes out of the way that the record moves. Overall, Cruel Country is an album that doesn’t shy away from troubles, and there’s no denying that we’re still living in a very troubled time.
