Wilco: The Art of Almost
With The Whole Love, Wilco return to the forefront of American music-makers. The follow-up to their Grammy-nominated Wilco (The Album), these 12 songs collectively make for one of the group’s finest albums of their career. Whether they are stretching out (the opener and closer are 19 minutes combined), packing artful pop punches or delivering blistering rock romps, The Whole Love is the culmination of the group’s nearly two-decade career. Longtime New York Times scribe Ben Sisario visits frontman Jeff Tweedy at home in Chicago along with bandmates John Stirratt and Pat Sansone for an insightful look at what makes this band tick.
Glen Campbell: Gentle on My Mind
Glen Campbell was a hit-making machine in the ‘60 and ‘70s, recording country and pop classics like “Southern Nights,” “Gentle on My Mind,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “Rhinestone Cowboy.” As part of a close-knit group of studio musicians known as The Wrecking Crew, he was also a force behind the scenes—and even performing a stint as Brian Wilson’s replacement in The Beach Boys. Shortly after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, Campbell mustered all of strength to complete Ghost on the Canvas, his final album, and headline one final tour before he retires. Yo La Tengo’s frontman Ira Kaplan—who was a music journalist in another life—sits down with Campbell for one of his final interviews.
Lotus: Electronic Flower Power
During the past decade, Lotus has emerged as one of the most successful acts on the jamband and livetronic music circuits. This year alone, the band has headlined marquee venues like Morrison, Colo.’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre and New York’s Terminal 5. After a few years away from the studio, the group released a fully-realized, electronic-focused, self-titled album this fall. Benjy Eisen traces Lotus’ history from Indiana college students to livetronica torchbearers to their future with a new lineup.
Karl Denson: Play On, Player
Karl Denson remains a visible presence in the jazz, funk and jam worlds after 30 years, thanks to his workmanlike attitude and ability to effortlessly shift between genres. Now in his 50s, Denson is currently enjoying a new wave of popularity after playing shows with everyone from Slightly Stoopid to Public Enemy to Soulive and due to his rekindled interest in the Greyboy Allstars and Tiny Universe. Amid a packed touring schedule, Denson explains how a married father of three can still balance life on the road with life at home.
