VARSITY - Turns Out b​/​w Downtown - 2013



It starts slow, is admittedly sloppy, isn’t recorded particularly well, but the bedrock of this is undeniably Wilco. You might even persuade me into believing their favorite album is Summerteeth, what with the swirling keyboards and the fuzz. But these kids have their own voice, and they have something to say. Their earnest midwest sentiments (the way they emphasis fucking around is just perfect) and their jubilance with having found an excellent chorus are easy to get caught up in. There’s a lot to love here, and I bet they have the best time playing live. MfR
