Wilco

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot


Named in honor of the threeword codes used by shortwave radio operators Wilco's fourth album sounds like a latenight broadcast of some weirdly wonderful pop station punctuated by static and the sonic bleed of competing signals Songs that begin with simple elegiac grace'Ashes of American Flags' and 'Poor Places'end in a cathartic squall of distortion The results can be initially jarring but it's these tracks more than the sturdy jangle pop of 'Kamera' or 'Heavy Metal Drummer' that demand and reward repeated listens Mixed by studio experimentalist Jim O'Rourke and produced by the band Yankee Hotel Foxtrot harkens back to a time when the words 'pop' and 'sonic adventurism' weren't mutually exclusive The Beatles and Kurt Cobain knew this and clearly so do Jeff Tweedy and company
