Loose Fur (basically a new Wilco album)
Loose Fur is Jeff Tweedy, Jim O'Rourke, and Glenn Kotche. Jeff Tweedy is the singer/songwriter of Wilco, Glenn is the drummer of Wilco, and Jim O'Rourke mixed Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. The new album "Born Again in the USA" is basically a new Wilco album. I highly recommend it. It has all the elements of a good Wilco album. It contains abrupt jam-outs accompanied with slow melodies. O'Rourke sings on a couple of songs. His voice is echoes folky tones while keeping the listener interested. "Wreckroom" is the highlight at a lengthy eight minutes. However, it does not get old. Hints of "Spiders: Kidsmoke" ring throughout. Check them on out myspace or the video at the bottom.
