Wilco fans can relax. Wilco is alive and well.

Fans of Wilco and their frontman, Jeff Tweedy, may have been concerned when news came out that Jeff was recording an album away from his beloved band. As it turns out, this new album signals not just the beginning of a new phase in Jeff Tweedy's career, but an extension of Wilco's collective vision, as all their external projects have been.

Tweedy - FUV Live - 2014

by Rita Houston

The latest project from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy is a collaboration with his son Spencer. The band started when Jeff was working with Mavis Staples on her latest album One True Vine, on which Jeff was producer and Spencer played drums. After the album was finished, Jeff and Spencer simply continued making music together. Now, under the very appropriate moniker “Tweedy,” the father-son combo releases their first album, Sukierae, on Tuesday and it's in the spotlight this week as FUV's New Dig. During this episode of FUV Live, we'll get a preview of some of the new songs and hear my conversation with Jeff and Spencer.

Is there a more protean musical talent than Elvis Costello? Think of all the great songs he's written, the genres of music he's explored, the collaborations he's pursued, the artists he's produced, even the fabulous TV series (Spectacle) he hosted.

The all-star cadre of collaborators warbling Beck songs includes Jack White, Jarvis Cocker, Jeff Tweedy, Laura Marling, Jason Isbell, Norah Jones, Swamp Dogg, Jack Black and others. Beck will sing just one song on the album, "Heaven's Ladder."
