When Wilco surprise-dropped last year's Star Wars album, the band revealed it already had another full-length ready to go. That album is called Schmilco, their 10th studio effort. Featuring 12 new songs written by Jeff Tweedy, it's the band's third release on their own dBpm Records.
Mostly an acoustic collection, Schmilco bears neither the vicious, fuzz-glam guitars of Star Wars, nor the dazzling, baroque-ish arrangements that fans have come to expect from Wilco. But in their place is a spaciousness and chaos that might feel welcome after 20-some years of enjoyed but now-familiar Wilco releases. It is an intentionally loose affair.
